    Hey brothers,

    I am starting the wheels a movin on the
    "MICHIGAN GATHERING". Please give me some input.
    I guess it would probrably be on a Saturday and would need to be
    at least a few weeks off. How about Lansing....Grand River....August 2nd
    or August 9th. All brothers wanting to camp are more than welcome to stay at my place (Charlotte) or i will find hotels close by....I will do the leg work, just let me know if these dates work.......WHAT DO YOU SAY....BROTHERS...:roll_eyes:

    I see that you read my thread brother. Your invitation sounds great to me and can't wait to hit the grand. I will do my best to get the time off of work in case I need to work the weekend. Do you have any horseshoe pits by chance?...lol! I'll be sure to bring a couple of dishes to pass and I already have about 20lbs of cat fillets that I caught over the last few weeks. Good lookin out for us brother and I look forward to meeting you and your family.....Rick

    Rick probably need to set a date that will work with your brother if he wants to go.

    I'm not familiar with the grand river (fishing sites,parking area,bait shops,etc.)
    so I'll leave place up to someone familiar with the river

    should we set up a time to start meeting? (knowing everyone wont be able to be there at exact time.)

    I'm thinking shore sack lunch
    (but when it comes to food) oh twist my arm:0a14:
    just my 2cents

    I can't give an exact time and place yet. I'm still waiting to see if some folks from the boc want to join in on this. It looks like we have more from michigansportman willing to go than from here. We should know something within a week to ten days.....rick

    Hey brothers,

    What do you guys think about Saturday, August 9th for the gathering. I can e-mail maps...to my house or even the river where we will be fishin at... just message me with your e-mail address for them.
    You are more than welcome to come in on Friday evening and set
    up camp at my place.... maybe some horse shoes and even a bonfire.We can fish on the day Saturday and even some night fishin if you would like....
    Again you brothers can stay Friday night and Saturday night as well.
    I will have some food and snacks at the house, but would appreciate
    maybe some dishes to pass....we can make sack lunches at the house
    before we head out....there are plenty of bait stores around...lots of restaurants for those who choose so.....even plenty of hotels.



    Let me know if i am forgeting anything....looking forward to meeting and learning a few things from you more experienced brothers......

    I am trying to get the time off to attend the gathering. I posted on Local Michigan Talk but I have had no response. I will need directions from Grand Rapids or Lansing (I live in Cadillac) to the location. Are you planning to start Friday evening or Saturday morning. I have a tent, cot and sleeping bag what else besides dishes to pass and fishing equipment should I bring?
