    It has been a question brought up many of times by myself Chris and Marcus and nobody has made a post yet. We were all wondering how many people would be intrested in a central iowa gathering, I think between the three of us we could pull it off..... And "JD" you would be required to be there or we will go pick you up LOL!!!

    I think an Iowa Roll Call is in order...

    Hell or High Waters (please God let them go away) I would/will be there...

    I know there is a lot that goes in to these gatherings, but I tell you if there is enough interest I have some pretty swell ideas...

    First and foremost, a couple of important questions...

    1) WHO is interested?
    2) LOCATIONS?
    3) WHEN?

    probably should look at all of those questions ASAP as time is running out on fishing season and it takes time to set this stuff up!!!

    Hmmm so far we have a possibility of 7 interested....

    Anyone else out there?

    I think we should start planning after the 4th and shoot for maybe mid August for a get together...?

    Any thoughts?

    7-10 people? I got a a few buddies that are not members that would attend, I don't think we need alot of prep time for this many. It should be a good time nevertheless

    That sounds like a pretty good idea to me. I'm from Grinnell, so not too far of a drive.

    Alright, we got some interest, now lets start looking at locations and dates...

    I am thinking the best dates might be:
    August 8-9
    or
    August 22-23

    How does that work for everyone?

    Any location ideas?

    we really don't have any lakes around here that hold flathead, maybe redrock?

    Or should we just have it on a bridge!!!! LOL!!!!

    The august dates work better for me. I really won't know 100% if I can attend until that week. Y'all know how work interferes with fishing.

    However, I really want to attend this "Flathead Seminar!" Haha.

    it'd be great if we could get a grill on one of the bridges
    but i know theres some access points on the racoon in adel where we could use a grill. the racoon holds some biguns

    I think we need to loot at a lake or somewhere there is camping because some people are going to want to spend the night I am sure... make a fri/sat of it...

    Just a thought...
