    Since the BOC is canceling it's Expo 2009, what do y'all think about NC having it's first state wide gathering in the summer of 2009. We could pick a location that would be central to those that would attend. Between now and the end of 2008, let those that are interested in such an event post their desire to attend, plus a two day date, plus your first choice of a lake.

    I will be the first to go on record as wanting to hold such an event. I am open to a date and location.

    My suggestion is to wait until the middle of December to pick a date. All of the major catfish tournament series should have their schedules out by then. From there we can eliminate those weekends, or perhaps plan it around one of the events. :wink:

    Meanwhile, tossing out some locations to hold the gathering would be a start.

    I went to the gathering that cattledog had and it was great i think a state wide one would be a great idea. I'm up for it.

    I have never participated in any event but would enjoy the comraderary; my boat is in great shape but truck...so so, so if it isn’t to far from LKN I'll be there. My schedule is always open.
    Going to try my luck north of 150 longbridge today just to keep my sprits up.

    I'd love to come! I actually think it may be better to do it in the spring or fall. It would just be a little bit better camping weather than it would in mid summer. I'm gonna suggest Sutton Lake as the location:smile2: Nah, it doesnt really matter to me. I guess one of the Triangle lakes would be the most centrally located but the fishing for cats anyways from what I've heard isn't too stellar. However, I'm down with slinging some chicken livers for a couple days, probably even bring a few green fish rods!!

    Sounds good to me also as long as we don't have a tourny scheduled for that weekend.
    I would like to say maybe Badin or Tillery as a lake. They seem to be maybe the most centrally located.

    Anyone that is seriously interested in coming, please chime in with where you are from. From there we can get an idea of what lake is close for everyone.

    I'm interested. Wouldn't mind getting together as long as the lake holds nice fish. We could maybe even do a river instead if you want it to be in the central part of the state. I fish Kerr Lake (Buggs Island), which is a great lake year around (Blues, Flatheads, & Channels). It has lots of camp grounds. But, it is a long way from everywhere.

    Tell me where and when and Ill try my best to be there. I think Spring would be good, as for the lake/location of course the closer the better. But Im up for going to a new place.
