    I just wanted to start the thread for the Chattanooga gathering before some one jumps on the traditional dates that we use. I'm proposing April 27th thru the 29th which is right in line with the normal weekend we use. Hopefully Mother Nature will be a little more cooperative this year and not try and blow Willard and Donna back from where they came.

    I plan on the dates being firm ASAP so that everyone has plenty of time to arrange their schedule to attend. If you think it over and can't decide for sure go ahead and post that you want to be put on the list, and if things don't work out that is fine we just need to have a head count to know we will have enough room and can plan for food later.

    If you post and don't have the transportation then we may be able to make arraingments to get you here and maybe even a place to sleep. Please post if you even just want to attend and we can go from there. It is common for brothers to share a ride and camp seperatley.

    There will be more information to follow including campground information and direction to get there from anywhere in the country. If you have never been to a gathering this is a good one to cut your teeth on as it is usually a smaller one with a lot of the members that have been around for many years.

    :eek:nthego: This list is in the works and will be updated accordingly. Anything in red is something I was not sure about and could change. If you see a mistake I have made let me know and I will correct ASAP. :encouragement:

    Mark Marcum (mmarcum6) 1 camping with boat

    Leslie and Hershell Brock (punkin570) ? camping

    Bob Goodwin (Kittycatcher) 1 camping


    If you are even thinking of coming to the gathering post so we have an idea. You can post later that you won't be able to make this gathering. I know of a few folks within a hours drive that have been asking for a gathering that have not posted.

    If you post and don't have the transportation then we may be able to make arraingments with a fellow brother or sister to get you here and maybe even a place to sleep. Please post if you even just want to attend and we can go from there. It is common for members to share a ride and camp separately.

    I am going to try to make this one but just for a one day visit probably saturday. If it is cold or raining I won't be there. The cold hurts me too much. I decided to come last year and it came a tornado.

  14. I'm very interested in this one. Not sure if will be camping, but I only live about 1hr away. So depending on where exactly it is at if I don't camp I should at least make it by.

    Dereck get your fishing buddy to join you and come on over to the gathering. We usually try and have an evening meal and get together on Saturday where everyone contributes something be it food, plates, flatware, etc.. You don't have to be a camper to participate just willing to eat and have fun. Families are also welcome as this is a clean family friendly event.
     
  19. Well if I am still kicking count me donna and the dogs in on this also. I won't be back fromtexas until the middle of march but this should give us time to get it done. I should have the toon also
