    I just paid 430 dollars to Reserve 2 Cottages right on the Lake. Information on the Cottages here

    http://www.alapark.com/joewheeler/Lakeside Cottages/

    We have two cottages, Both of them are 3 BedRoom and 2 Bath. I believe its 3 queen bed in each one. Some folks will be sleeping on the floor/couches. It is my recommendation that those that have medical conditions, and/or starting with the most senior in age working backwards be given the beds. I'll sleep in my truck.

    The Grand Total for the 3 nights is just shy of 1500 dollars. The Club can only pay 1000 so everyone will have to pitch in to make up the 500. Its probably going to be about 25 bucks per man to cover the overage.

    Heres the rates for each cabin in a nutshell.

    18th - 150
    19th - 190
    20th - 190

    There is a 10 dollar per day, per person charge, for each person over the 6th person in each cottage. Couple that with the sales tax, and thats where the extra comes from.

    I'll figure out how much each man will owe for the overage the first night down there, and everyone can pay me then.

    We can check in at 3pm on the 18th, and we must be checked out by 11am on the 21st.

    They have a 72 hour cancellation policy so we can cancel if the weather were to be 'unfishable' for that weekend and we could reschedule.

    I'm planning on pulling out in the wee hours of the morning on the 18th, to be down there around 10am or so. I figure everyone will be 'mostly fishing' so except for a couple of hours in the evenings for social hour, I figure everyone will be on the water, and or sleeping.

    Should be a good time.

    More info as I come about it. Thats where we are staying though.

    I plan on riding down with mike butler if he can go. The last time i talked to him he said he should be able to and i guess he will be bring his boat. i will try to talk to him tonight and get a update. If he can't go I will try to bring my boat but I need to get it running right. just changed motors and it's hard to do anyting in this weather. Just let me know what its going to cost me. i would like to pay up front at he lead fest also my dues too. speaking of lead fest. where exactly is that?

    john im feeling bad for you bud! when we talked the other day , you said you were fishing wheeler for a few days, and then headed on a long drive straight from wheeler to Tawakoni tx to fish the cabelas king kat!

    thats hardcore my man! i used to do that stuff when i was younger, then i wised up! but back then it still wore me down! be sure to get you some rest before the tourny! its tough to concentrate and compete when your beat!

    good luck guys

    Sorry to hear that Scott. Maybe things will turn around and you can make a last minute arrival.

    This is good advice Steve, but what your not seeing is in the back of my truck I have a cot, and on top of it is a full size mattress : ) I sleep extremely well in the back of there, even with the temps down in the teens. It's quite the comfie lair. If for whatever reason I need to, I can always bring my cot an mattress into a cottage lol it really is comfie though. The only part that's no fun is getting up at 2am when nature calls haha

    Car Pools

    Me - (I can take a couple folks down, but not back as I'm going to Texas)



    You guys taking boats down, go ahead and copy and paste whos in your boats, and start to figure out car pool list. I'm flying the next few days, but will check in when I can. Keep the list going. Tow vehicle fuel expenses will need to be handled by each person driving down. Just divide the cost amongst the guys you drive down and back. Even with the overage, if there is 4 folks to a vehicle, I think everyone will be out of pocket less than 150 total for everything.

    I'm more than willing to drive down there, but after looking over the boat earlier today I realized that the plates expire in January and don't see me having the time to get that taken care of before we leave so unless things change I'll not be taking my boat. I'm not quite as carefree as Lynus when it comes to driving around with expired plates. So, looks like I'll be picking up Bob and his boat for the trip down......:wink:

    Its February 18th-21st. You'll need to have your dues in by the time we leave on the 18th, and the expected cost is going to be around 150 bucks. If your interested in attending, and you'll have your dues in, copy and paste the list onto a new post, and add your name on the list. :wink:

    I'm assuming that since Bob liked my post about picking up him and his boat that he's good with that arrangement....
