Event Update and more

Did anyone notice that the FTE times are off now?


Anyways.


For the Frankenmuth meet, I'll try my best to have everything scheduled by December. (I hope)
I'm going to the wild north for a week to the property, that might hinder my productivity. Perhaps I'll have the spotters card done by the end of the trip also.

The mounds get together doesn't seem very interesting to a lot of people, so, whoever is interested in going, and would like me to attend, please post there when you are going to be there. http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/671047-mounds.html

Bronco Graveyard will be another meet up this next year. As to the exact dates and other things, I need to wait for updates from their page. I spoke with somebody over there when I ordered my parts from them. They said Just show up, but he kinda changed that after a bit. So perhaps we can make this an FTE formal event and get some hats and stuff. (I hope)


I would like to get something going on the west side of the state also, maybe we can all meet at the dunes or something (and hope Tim doesn't get stuck again with his long *** truck.) I'm not familar with a lot of events on the west side.
I know there is some stuff that goes on in Muskegeon in the june/july area. Some outdoor concert festival.

Also, some members have mentioned casino's, and... well, How many are under 18? I really don't want to have an event where some members who want to attend, cannot do so because of age. That wouldn't be to fair.

I sometimes wish we had a smaller state. =(
As for meetings, screw meetings. We can discuss stuff here, on the phone, or at a meet.

If you plan on a silver lake trip in the spring, for a west side trip i can take some of the load in setting that up, If anyone is interested let me know and i'll start calling around for campsites.

Were lookin for disaster buddy.

Were wreckless dudes with trucks!!!!

Alright, lets throw up some names for some rivers and stuff, and then we can play 1 or 2... or 3 or 4 cannooing trips.

Got one here in Mt Plesant, we can go up to Mio and Camp out and go down the osaboo, or the rifle (this is a great one to do! camping!). I think we should do our first one on the west side of the state. What we got over there?

talyn, you go to central? i haven't been down the chippewa in years.

i spent 6 years at ferris, in a town that has nothing to do BUT tube.... so i'm up for a tubing trip for sure. we can always do the muskegon river in big rapids... theres a livery to rent tubes, a couple hour float, then a bus will take you back to the livery. we can stop at "******* Beach" and watch the bikini's for awhile, that's always a plus.

I havnt been tubing in yrs.Sounds like a blast.I went at ferris a few times and it rocked.Duct tape a big tupperware bowl to some rope for your dry goods and a cooler to a tube and prepare to get sunburnt.

PLEASE LORD, don't let them be playing with my heart. Conueing down the Au Sable is about the best thing I've ever done. The last time I say 2 yes 2 Bald egales not 20 feet in front of me on a branch 10 feet above the river. I'm an eagle freek, that being said, I was in tears. It was the ausomest (spl) thing I've ever seen. I will go at anytime you want to go. Please don't tease.

Jim
