    A few of us BOC members are going to Port Gibson on the 7,8,9,and 10th of June,we will be camping and fishing. We have a couple of places we can camp at and we are still flexible as to where we will camp. We are thinking about Grand Gulf State Park,it is 5 dollars a night for tent camping. We will be fishing the MS river out of Claiborne County Port. At the port there is a boat ramp and plenty of room for bank fishing. And a couple of us will be fishing the Big Black river too. It is a small river with good fishing and the boat ramp is at the 61 hwy bridge.

    Everybody is welcome to come camping and fishing with us!!

    I stopped by the weight station on interstate and got my passport.They recommended I get a full line of shots as I was going to a fur-en land. Also the said it not safe to drink the water, it will make you talk funny.

    Coach: Does that mean I do not have to go through the passport process again? I sure hope so, the required shots were not too bad although I was a little concerned about the use of the community needle -- especially since I got there for my shots right after they finished with that van load of "cheerleaders" passing through on their way to New Orleans.

    I hope you have started saving up them skippie tails for me like I asked you to. There is just something about the way they twirl in the water that really attracts the bigguns.

    Well, I reckon that if you can drag all these flatlanders down there, I might as well slide off the mountain and head that way too. If Im recovered enough....Mac

    Scott, you know you can count on me, IF I'm in the country at the time. I'm changing schedules this spring, and am not certain what my schedule will be come June. But I'll let y'all know as we get closer to D-Day.

    Dale, do make certain you get all your shots. We definitely don't want anyone coming down here and "giving" the locals anything!

    Put me down as a definite maybe. It's hard for me to commit to something 6 months in advance but I'll try my best.
