I just called The park and they said there are planes that are dropping dud bombs on the lake for practice....she just found out about it this morning.

She's checking and will call me back as soon as she knows the full story.

Shit :? :evil:

I saw the signs and I thought they were for the gathering since the dates coincide with the dates on the sign. I mean folks drove thousands of miles to keep their boats on the trailers? Who else is here?

Ita there for all to read! I did not question it as my thoughts included that it was slated for the gathering.

My wife said "I bet if it was a Bass tournament they wouldn't have closed it!"

Are you guys serious?

Come to find out,it's an air show with bombing demos....no bombs though.

I called Dave Grason, and he called the park and got things settled.

They will have some ramps closed,but others will be open for us.

We have some dockage set aside for us,and can still use the parking lot for the sat show.

That was close!!!!

Thanks to :D Dave and John!!

There is also a ramp at the Lake Cabins. It is small, but it is still there. We'll all go catch bombs!

We will be taking pictures! Todak needs the business.

There might be a little more local traffic this year. A friend who lives in the area heard it advertised on a local radio station. Bill...sorry I didn't get some signs made up this year. I'm gonna start early & have them ready for #4. If I'm able to make it at all it'll be a couple of hours Saturday evening. Weather is looking fantastic now. Bert
