Arrow Sat June 19th, 2010 FTE - Summer GTG (Details + Roll Call)

(post edited 5/25)
- Sat June 19th, 2010 FTE - Arkansas Chapter Summer GTG -


Time: 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Location: Desoto Park, Hot Springs

Directions: Click Here For a Google Maps Link

On the Menu: Grilled Hamburgers / Hot Dogs




All Arkansas Chapter members and family, and friends that are interested in Ford Trucks are invited and welcomed to attend.

We have a family-friendly atmosphere at our GTG's, so please no beer / adult beverages, etc. (There's plenty of time for that at our unofficial meets and wrench parties)

If you've not been to one our get-togethers before, we usually have a bit too much to eat, then kick back and bs about trucks for a couple of hours.

Occasionally a hood gets popped or a truck gets crawled under.. Meanwhile our wives have segregated off talking about ...well probably how much money / time we spend on our trucks.



If you are planning on attending and haven't posted yet, post up how many people will be with you so we can divvy up who's bringing what, and how much of everything we'll need.

I'll bring enough charcoal and everything we'll need for the grill, as well as Hamburger meat and buns for the burgers.. We'll need volunteers for:

1) Paper plates, forks, paper towels, etc.
2) Hot dogs + buns, burger fixins, ketchup, mustard, cheese..
3) Chips, dip
4) Cookies

As for drinks, everyone has their own tastes, just bring whatever you'd like for yourself and your party, we'll have atleast one cooler there you can put them in.

Unless something drastic happens, I'll be in Pigeon Forge TN on the 26th. And from there heading farther north to Hew Hampshire for a visit with my oldest nephew and his family.

June is a big IF for us. We are going to PA starting on the 5th, and depending on if I get orders or not depends on how long we are gone for, but it will be a minum of 2weeks. So if we are doing it in June, I doubt we will make it.

I'm working in the greater HS area during the week...so I can start looking around to see what's available. Any kind of special accommodations do I need to keep an eye out for? I know a playground type place would be high on my list (5 & 10 year in my house)...but is there something else that would be useful?

Free is always a plus when we are looking for a place..

Mine are 6 and 11 so....yeah

Like Joe says we do like free bit we aren't above renting a pavilion or something. For our outdoor venues generally we look for something shaded for the ladies, big parking lot for the rigs, and something to entertain the kids. If we can cook and eat without dragging all our gear around, so much the better.

I'll look around the next couple of days/week and see what's available. I don't know too many folks down that way...but I'm sure we can find something.

The shade part is no joke...I love my wife and she's a great woman. But the outdoors type she is not. Her version of camping is the biggest 5th wheel/Class A coach you can get. Got to love a woman that believes in creature comforts above everything else. I make no promises and it may take me a couple of days/week, but I'll see what's around the HS area. I'm only down there during the week and with this new job I'm still dealing with "their way" of thinking. I assume a state park type of place is the preferred?

Any weekend in June works for me. Of course now that I've said that...they'll change things at work.

Maybe I can help you out with the Hot Springs area. There are several nice parks the city maintains. Entergy park is located on Lake Hamilton and it is the newest park in town. It is at Carpenter dam. There is a nice playground, restrooms, small grills, a fishing pond, pavilion, hiking trails, and the lake for fishing or boating.

Family park has two large pavilions, a fishing pond, playground, basketball and tennis courts, horseshoe pits, restrooms, grills, and a walking trail. This park is older but it is clean and popular.

Desoto park is close to downtown. It has picnic tables and grills, some playground equipment, restrooms, a small pond, and a big ole Sherman tank! It is a nice clean park but it does not have a pavilion. It is shady however.

Lake Catherine State Park is located between Hot Springs and Malvern. There is a swimming area,restrooms, picnic area, hiking trails, and a pavilion also I believe. There should be grills there also.

Lake Ouachita State Park has a swimming area, pavilions, playground, restrooms, and picnic area. There should be grills available also. There are hiking trails at the park too.

Both of the state parks are very nice and they offer campsites and cabins. I have a contact at LOSP so I can get some more info on that if you'd like.

I have a get to gather for another hobby the first weekend of June but the rest of the month should be clear.

Sadly no! I'm not much of a biker. I like the machines and would love to have one to tinker with but I just can't see myself spending much time riding one. I've seen too many riders go down to be comfortable on one.

Joe,The following users were not found:
Joe, Looks like WillP has info covered. Trouble around Hot Springs is that tourist season gets very busy at these places. He will probably need firm dates to make plans. Park Service controls a lot of these places and State controls most of the rest. I'll try to follow posts on these plans?? Carroll

Joe,Tried to answer your PM but don't know that it went thru. Here is the reply.
