Who would be interested in meeting up next year.

I thought it might be fun to meet up with some or all of you.

We can do whatever the group decides, but a few suggestions might be to meet in the ashcroft/cache creek area when the drags are on.
Or if you like we would be willing to host a party.
Those with tents, campers etc can even camp on our property and plug into the house for power.
We have about 3/4 acre that is not totally flat, but fairly flat you can park on.
bring a dirt bike/ quad etc and explore, have a fire and cook hotdogs etc.

Or we could choose a lkae in BC and have an FTE fishing derby, say each entrant throws in $20 and the biggest fish on say a saturday takes the pot.
Just ideas, please post if interested, and also your ideas.

Thanks

Saleen aka Marty

Last year we had one set up for Vernon and due to schedules and folks not working at the time in kind of fell through and only one member actually made it.

I would love to set something up and you have some pretty good suggestions there. If we are going to try to get something setup the sooner we start the better.

Thats doable for us, as long as its not in June or early July.

I am racing baja in june, and early july i am going to jetski races.

but we have a camper, and like to camp.

Anyone got dates to suggest?

I am pretty sure that from about July 10th to late august we can make most if not all dates work.

Hopefully when a weekend is decided, it is one that Al is home from Ft. Mac so we can come too. We are pretty open to camping just about anywhere. And we have the Argo now to do some exploring in too. Just would mean either using the tent instead of tent trailer, which is just fine with me or bringing two vehicles.

Not too sure Val, gonna go to harrison lake pretty much for sure, and the rest of the time we can go where ever, take a different route home to make a meet or whatever.

Still gotta get kristen away from that fella, so i might coax here into coming back to sask with me too... haha

Being the member who actually made it to the "meet" I am good with just about anywhere but fishing. The wife won't camp unless we can scare up a small trailer to use......but being in Kamloops puts me in a good spot for just about anywhere on a day trip.

My wife is not a tenting type either, hence why we have a big camper with all the comforts.
Honestly, I would rather just have a tent and sleeping bag, and cook over a fire.
A lot less hassle than hauling this thing around.

I still feel bad about not being able to make it. As for the trailer just go out and buy her one.

I felt the same way until one reunion we had. We stayed in a tent while my parents and my sister's families stayed in their motorhome and trailers.

We now have 30' of 5th wheel which we rough it in.
