    Mark That one last year was closer to 60 IMHO. What a great fish. Oh and don't forget the food.

    theres cabins for those who want air conditioning. of course me and a few others even have ac in out tents lol.

    It's not at Keyesport. It's at Eldon Hazlett campgrounds. And all you have to do to air condition a tent is put an air conditionewr through a window, support it on both sides, and plug it in ! I go out of the way and insulate the top and outside walls of the tent and use 2 15,000 btu air conditioners. But I like seeing my breath when I'm ready to go to sleep! LOL

    click that link. it will take you to the reserve site. to reserve it wich i strongly recommend as they get booked early. as a few are gone already. its $20 per night and a $5 reserve fee. i got sight 11 for thurs through sunday $85. to be close to the group try and stick with about 7-15. illini loop as in the above link.

    as far as the air. i put a small window unit on a bucket or camp chair and smash it to the window. then put a comfortor over the top of tent and air unit leaving the back of ac open to exaust. the tent shakes with cold air. awesome sleeping when its 90+ degrees.

    hope to see you there. its a good time.

    go to the home page and go down to the bottom and go in the gatherings page. we discuss the details there. this was to draw new folks attention. the food??? well discuss that in the coming months. we usually all bring something to add to the smorgasboard.
