As we discussed at the GTG the next meet will be in June right now we are looking at Sat. the 7 th of June down in southern AR. Jeff (mechmagcn) will be hosting it he lives down in El Dorado . Jeff and his wife Donna have been coming up north to as many meets as they could for the last two years it is now our turn to head down there. Jeff is going to look into a few places and post what he finds.

We also have a new Chapter Photographer Jim Kidds wife Michaela has stepped up to do the job.

OK, so far, I rode down to the local State Park and took a few pics. The first one is of the outdoor pavilion, this area is wooded and has a screened pavilion, but very little else, next is one of the campsites, it is right across the street from the play area, close to the restrooms, and close to the water if anyone wants to fish. Our idea is to rent the campsite(actually, I already have it reserved) and rent a canopy for shelter, there would be plenty of room and everything will be close-by.

The campsite I will take care of, the pavilion, if wanted, is $60 a day. I will check on a canopy this week and get a price.
Depending on how many show up, the campsite and a canopy should do well, it is a large site. There usually are many youngsters around this park and it is safe to bring bicycles or any other toys.
Since our chapter leader (Dave) usually brings most of the eats, this time I will ask him to only bring himself and family, we will supply the food for this one. What does everybody think of smoked pork roast, brisket, BBQ beans and potato salad? There will also be a cake for desert.
This will all take place at Moro Bay State Park. From Little Rock, it looks to be about 120 miles.

This place looks perfect, thanks Jeff.

No cabins yet, they are under construction. I don't think they will be ready for this season.

Does the pavillion have an indoor restroom or a/c? What about a water fountain?

From the looks of it none of those things are present....the outdoor area at your campsite would seem to be fine. We'll probably need more than one canopy, I recommend all of us that have access to one bring it. Also looks like chairs will be at a premium, so if we have them bring them as well.

What about cooking surfaces Jeff? Is your camper and that little outdoor grill going to be enough, or do you need more grills trucked in?
