Laagriplats on avatud kõigile telkimiseks, kes soovivad jääda üleöö.

Come spend the day in the country at Lättemäe and join us for lunch, relaxation, some good old fashioned Estonian music and sing-alongs with Peeter Kopvillem and a traditional campfire.

There is no charge for lunch (donations accepted), and Ottawa participants are asked to bring a contribution to the dessert table. Please register with Margus Aruja by emailing before June 19. Supper is on your own, so bring along a cooler. Õlu will be available or bring your own beverages.
