    DH,
    I wasn't going to go there but I figure you would get the best of him in that part of the event.:smile2:
    My money is on Eric. I usually pull for the underdog. Besides I read the post Rolo made earlier today trying to pick a fight. Well, it looks like you got one. Be sure and bring your Snoopy poe to the cat fight.:smile2:
    Thanks

    DH, I will be bringing a boat with me as well. Might can even be talked into bringing a few of my wifes homemade butterscotch and cream cheese pies.:still_dreaming: There has got to be some king of pot luck if this event is going to a success. A good old fashion butt whoop-en is one thing but good food is a whole different attraction in itself. :smile2:

    :smile2::smile2: i guess i barked up the wrong tree!! lol....i just found this thread, and im laughing soo hard i can't see through the tears!! sounds like a fun time, but sorry to say it will have to be closer than henderson. i work road construction during the summer, and do not get any days off, except for sunday for sure, often working saturdays at times! thats why dh needs to bring his troop up here, so i can make sure the showdown will be able to take place... river or lake? might only be a one day/night event, but, sure would be a fun one! im not backing down here, simply just being reallistic! if i can't make it maybe i can send shawn, jack down to represent the ohio boys!:crazy: well, maybe that needs more discussion!! lol...rollo

    Hey folks!!!! That is the tail end of my vacation. I'll be already down at the LBL and Henderson is on the way home. YAY _ YESS ___ And Further More, God Willing I will be there.

    Camping fees are kinda high there. Rushing Creek Campground in the LBL 8 dollars the first night, 7 after that. That's 50 dollars a week with bathrooms and showers, swings,basketball court, etc for the kids. My inner cheapskate is showing itself, but I'll be there.

    I'll have to root for OLD DH. I'll have my boat Too. But my frig should be full of catfish fillets, so I won't be keeping any. Someone should want the smaller 2-10 lb ones or I can Catch and Release.

    :big_smile::wink::eek:oooh::big_smile:

    If you're disabled and have your disability card you keep with your fishing licens you get a discount on camping there. I can't remember how much but every little bit helps. I'll see if I still have my receipt and look. Its a really nice camp ground, We can't wait to get back there!
    Hope we can make it!!!:big_smile:
