I cut-n-pasted-edited this from Dave Lott:
Please chime in with your level of interest and ideas on it being held in May.We are planning a mini-get together in the spring time for the midwest guys that don't come to the BIG G and those that can't wait a whole year to get together again?
We have between 8-10 lakes within a few hours drive but Table Rock fits the bill for most of our needs
I know of a number of resorts but one particular one has served a number of boat gatherings. Rock Lane on the Indian Point. It is a "resort" on a small peninsula with private ramp, docks, fuel, pavilion, picnic tables, hotel style accomodations, pool, restaurant and bar.
If we do this, I recommend in early or mid May. April is too iffy for temperature and beginning Memorial Day the lower main lake area is TOOOOOOOO busy with recreationists.
So Bill and I would like some input. This is intended only to serve the midwest regional get-together for those who find traveling down to the BIG G too far or for those of us that just can't wait a whole year without getting together again.
This can also serve as a mini taste of what the Big Gathering is like.
