    I was just wanting to get some input...I am thinking about trying to get a gathering together in central IL. I don't want to get to deep into it yet until ya'll are done with the one at Rend Lake. Just wanted some ideas on Location, etc. I usually just fish Powerton and my local ditches, so I don't know many of the other holes around all that well. Just let me know if anyone is interested or any ideas ya'll might have.

    Lake Bloomington, Lake Evergreen, Dawson Lake, Powerton (no campsites there though), Clinton Lake, LaSalle Lake

    Just a few more thoughts-was on ififshillinois.org and saw these, thought they might be possibilities...

    Central Il would work out for me pretty well. Rend Lake is a long way for me to travel, something closer would be nice. Sangchris would work for me but you guys let me know what you think. Ill propably be in if we can do it on a Sat. or Sun.

    I personally would like to go a little bit farther north, but whatever you guys would prefer. Weekends would be best for me also. Sangchris is about 3 hours from me, but whatever ya'll think...

    Would weekends be best for everybody? It would be harder for me if it was during the week. And I was thinking early August maybe??
