August Meet

Time to start planning the next meet. I'm thinking the last weekend in August (26th) in or around Mountian Home. Maybe someone up there can let us know where.

Thats a bit far isn't it? I'm willing to drive if everyone else is..

How about Mountain View?

I suggest we take a census of those that can attend, then pick a spot based on that..

Sorry about having to back out at the last minute, but now you're talking an area that I wouldn't mind driving to. We used to vacation in Flippin and Yellville years ago. I wonder if the Flippin Auction is still open. That was the highlight of the week on Saturday night. The auctioneer is a comedian, we used to go more for the entertainment than to buy. Hey, how about having the meet at Buffalo Point Park. They have some pavilions and group areas. Haven't been there in several years, but it was very nice the last time.

After jumping through the hoops to get on the reserveusa site, I found that the pavilions at Buffalo point would cost $59.00 Any member holding a Golden Age or Access card? This would cut the cost in half. Right now it looks like all 3 pavilions are open for the 26th, but this could change. I would probably go up on the 25th and camp for the weekend.

AndysFords is starting off with a positive reputation.
Maybe I can come to this one. I didn't get the message till the 30th b/c my Internet was screwed up. I was excited until I read it was the 29th!

Jimbo, no problem. Let's give it a few days to see if everyone is agreeable to the location.

OK folks, Buffalo Point Campground. If everyone is ok with this, I will reserve the pavilion P3. This is close to the river and a very nice place.

Buffalo point is 14 miles south of Yellville.

I'm in! I think the river may be dry. We needs rain!

Count me in, Can't bring the slick this time, but a ford none the less.

If we all chip in on the pavilion, $59 wont be so bad.

They have modern and rustic cabins at the park too i see, hmm.. might have to drive up friday also

I would advise checking for a reservation now, those cabins are usually booked far in advance.
When we get a few more yes votes, I'll make the reservations for the pavilion.
Jimbo, the river usually doesn't dry up at Buffalo Point. A friend went camping at Steele Creek last week and said there was no water there.

Momma's mustang counts as a truck if you remove the hatch and call it a mustchero.

Speaking of Brian_B, has anybody heard from him lately? I don't remember seeing him post in a while. Was wondering how he was doing healthwise.
