    Tom this year I will be there ready to fish unlike last year. What ever weekend works for me also. The only thing I lack is I still have not found a person fairly close to weld a drain plug tube in my boat. If any of you guys know someone in the area of the littlle apple ,wamego or topeka area shoot me a name and number. I jsut don't feel confadent beeings all I really do is stainless now.

    Anyone against having the April Gathering from here on out known as the Garen Memorial ??? Not a set in stone date every year , but a definite Gathering in his memory every April. He sure did love Milford and it would be great to do a mini there every April. Just a thought.

    Keith- I like the idea.


    Chris- Is your boat aluminum? If so my cousin can do it if you want to bring it up to troy. Its a little more than an hour north of topeka. I don't know what he'd charge but I doubt it would be much.

    Free camping ends on April 15. So we will need to do the Garen Memorial Milford mini either the weekend of the 3rd or 10th. I prefer the 10th. That gives another week for the water to warm up some.

    Ok I just looked and the 3rd is Easter Sunday, so if we want free camping it will have to be the 10th.

    Who wants to start the poll so we can vote?:Happy:

    My wife is having the kid march 26 (if not sooner) so I probably won't make this one, unless she lets me escape for a few hours.
    If anyone has any contact with Garrens family, they might let them know that we are having a gathering in his memory. They might like to know that he made enough of an impact that we named an event after him.

    What are you bringing to eat though Tom? :Happy:

    Sounds good April 9, 10, 11 School Creek. Loop "A"

    For those that don't know, there is no electric or water hookups at school creek. Campsites are first come first serve. There is a newer vaulted toilet house that is clean. No showers. Boat ramp is 2 minutes away from the camp grounds. Plenty of room for tents. Good shore fishing so bring your bank fishing setups.
