March / Spring Chapter Anniversary GTG

It just occurred to me, that it's the first of Feb already and we haven't discussed at all our spring get-together.

Last year we had it at my my shop, anyone want to volunteer to host it this year?

Toad Suck or Petti Jean? There was chatter about doing it up my way last fall...while I'm not saying we should do that. If there is interest, I can do some looking around...there is a couple of Corp and/or State parks in the area with suitable meeting places for this Motley Crue. Have Ford...will travel.

I dunno Joe. You have a big shop. Lots of parking. Nice pond for the kids to drown in. Seems like a perfect place for a gtg. But I'll go anywhere. We need to visit the NW crew for sure.

Well, depends on what everyone is interested in. Springhill is a Corp park in Barling (East of FSM) that has two playgrounds for the kids at heart to choose from as well as several camping spots and two pavilions that I can remember off the top of my head.

Campsite Map V2 - SPRINGHILL, AR - Recreation.gov

Looks like after the first of March, they'll have attendants at the park so reservations are possible; before then it's first come, first served. It's fairly easy to get to...I-40 west (from anywhere in the state) to Van Buren; I540 south toward FSM...then exit onto Hwy 59 south and you'll run into it. If we want to get really off the beaten path...there's Lake Ft. Smith.

Lake Fort Smith State Park - Boston Mountain Range - Ozark Mountains - Arkansas State Parks

Let me start off by saying...you want to go to this park. Just like Devil's Den...10-15 miles off the super slab on the two lane roads will get you there. The park is relatively new (built 2003-2004), so it's still got that new park look to it. I know there's cell phone coverage...my employer had a rules class there last February. I'm not saying it's a bad place...but it's out of the way. Working a little back east...there is Mount Magazine; awesome views as well a hiking trails. Though a March GTG could be interesting if the temps drop and the cloud cover comes down (freezing drizzle/fog). The weather is supposed to be good this weekend...so I can snap a couple of photos of Springhill and Mount Magazine if anyone is interested.

Hmm, I'm looking for a place to take my old motorhome with the new roof. I guess you guy would give me a hard time for showing up in a GM rig, huh?

I'll put in a vote for Ft. Smith state park. Nice clean facilities and the crappie are starting to bite good by then. Kids can even bank fish and do OK. Nice hiking trail and plenty of parking IIRC.

What do you guys think? Pavilion? Looks like there is a meeting room available also:

Pavilions at Lake Fort Smith State Park, Arkansas

The room would be a safer bet if it were pouring rain or snowing or something, but we'd all have to go in.

Our church uses the park quite often so I am pretty sure the pavilion cost around $100 per day. I was wondering WHEN myself. Hoping it is before the 22nd that is when I am supposed to leave for North Central Arkansas.

Hey Zach is that one of the new cabins they just finished? I had heard they were working on them this winter but did not know they were done. I need to go look at them.
