    Greetings Troopers.

    We will have our meeting at the Cabelas Store on Saturday May 31st coupled with a Dollar Tourney on the same day.

    Times to Follow, as I'm waiting on a phone call from Cabelas.

    Would you guys rather meet early for the meeting than head to the river, or meet at the boat ramp early and have the meeting that night. I like the idea of getting the meeting over with rather early then heading to the river.

    Thoughts?

    Meeting and dollar day combo sounds good here. Cabela’s might wonder about all the little shiney sparkles on the tables and the smell of baitfish lingering plus if the bite is on we wouldn‘t want to leave. Either way I’m open but would rather put the cap on the beginning then be able to enjoy the river and what the day brings. Don't know if anyone is going to the New Madrid tourney that day but it's good here for the combo.

    I thought about the New Madrid Cabelas Event when I scheduled this. Based on another thread in another section, I was under the assumption that only Grumper and I would be the only Gateway Guys considering going down to fish that tourney. Grump and I have "painfully" decided that it would be between 600 and 1000 dollars to go to that tournament, and being as we are already qualified for the Classic we just cant justify the cost. I hate it because it truly is one fun tournament. We will be fishing Justins Tournament, and the Cabelas Louisiana Event though.

    Anyhoo, I'm leaning towards having the meeting Early that Saturday morning, then the dollar tourney till dark. Like Michael said, there wouldnt be any need to rush to get off the river to make the meeting.

    Looks like the Ol Coons drug up the Ole Jer who has been in hiding. :smile2: Jer, you will have time to make the meeting, and still have The Yacht floating by lunchtime for the start of Happy Hour :wink: Perhaps you could drag the yacht and explore the Alton Pool of Water. The Mrs might want to tour Grafton and all the shops instead of look at the river from mile marker 150 and 140 anyhow. :smile2::wink:

    However, IF we do have a few guys that do want to go to New Madrid, the possibility exist of having the Meeting and Dollar Tourney on Sunday. I dont know how many members we have that must be in Church but I'll consider it if we have several folks that want to do the Cabelas Event.

    Please advise on this thread your thoughts folks so I can get the ball rolling.

    I would naturally vote for Sunday so I can do the dollar tourny. But I am just one of many.

    Saturday is my open day that weekend. Had dink recently ask to come fish his gatherings and my answer was dude, I can’t do Sundays. Cooks gathering is my one and only allotted Sunday of the year.

    I can do either/or. Doesn't really matter to me. Where will the tourney be launching from?

    Anybody gonna have a spare seat and a half? Eric and I might make the trip - it's my last weekend before I punch out for 6 weeks in Cali and it'd be neat to do something with him and Joe before I go. Have to run it by the red head, first, of course:wink:.

    Anything will be fine with me, cause I may have to sit this one out either way. Work both days and won't be able to get out of either. Also, the Kutters Katter is still sittin in the driveway just like she was when I took her out of winter storage. Lot's of minor work needs to be done before ready for the Mississippi River.

    I do like the idea of meeting in the morning and fish till dark.

    Saturday works for me and putting in around the Alton/CB area sounds good too.

    Well have boat space for everyone I'm sure. The Dollar Tourney will be "open ramp" so guys can choose where they want to put in at. With Cabelas being so close, I'd assume most guys will utilize the Alton or CB Ramps.

    Not to argue with the "Prez", but I don't like the "open ramp" concept. The idea of the Dollar tournaments was to get together, which is the part I personally like. If everyone is running out of whatever ramp they want then there is no get together. I can understand if someone like Russ wants to get in and is as far away as he is, but most members live in the St. Louis vicinity and are capable of making it to one ramp. Oh well, just my 2 cents. :roll_eyes:

    Good Point. We can all utilize one ramp. Matters not to me. CB and the Alton Ramps are all real close. Up to you guys.
