    Erica any updates on this meet? do you have a list of definite attendees, as of yet?

    Fuel prices are coming down but one needs to shop for best cost. I use and update on Gasbuddy for Utah and Northern Nevada. Most are probably aware of Gasbuddy .com
    Jordanelle is a great place for fishing a variety of fish. One should go online and look at the fishing regulations and costs of out of state licenses before they arrive.

    Erica does the reservation include the park admission fees?
    Are there any discounts for the camping facilities?
    Is there an agenda set up and a director to handle the details?
    Not to be a pain but are the supplies like firewood supplied or does one need to bring or charcoal or.....?

    I know that reservations at lodging are difficult and some are already booked so those wishing to lodge close to the Park should make necessary arrangements asap.
    There are a few cabins that can handle as many as 18- 28 lodgers if all got together and shared costs. One cabin I saw has several rooms and beds and 3 bathrooms as well as a neighboring bunk house which can handle 8.

    Just FYI, ing for those planning to attend.

    Thansk for all your time and patience in setting this up.

    My wife so far has said she is not interested in going. I can drive on my own, but summer weekends are at a premium and all such time slots are a matter of negotiation between me and my wife. So negotiations will continue. I already have a two week slot in July set aside for just me for a trip to MOTO-GP at Laguna Seca Raceway (camping in the track park). This meet might be a reach to do without her coming along.

    Just get out the brochures and show her all that can be seen and done along the way. Get her a fishing rod and some bait then set that hook.:lol:

    - Coach said he will bring the meat!! LOL no dirty jokes there... haha, what is everyone else thinking of eating??
    - Park Admission is about $9.00
    - Discounted camping $16.00- if your camping you get $2.00 as well. Please call TOLL FREE- 1-800-322-3770 to book
    - Bring your own charcoal

    I don't have a banner to put up for you guys sorry, Don't have enough money to buy one... after booking all the US and Canada meets...So maybe someone would like to make one, or knows someone who can bring one. Thought it might be a great thing to have, then people know where to meet, and we can show our pride!

    Thanks Erica for all you have done. Maybe we could get a pool going to pay for banners. do you have a cost negotiated as of yet?
    It would be cool as members if we could help cover some of your costs and make it something special.
    Anyone else feel the same?

    Although I will not be able to make it as I will be in Alaska on a Cruise for my 10 year anniversary, I want to thank Erica for all the hard work she has put into getting all of the regional meets together. Was a good weekend to as it is one of the weeks I always have off but the wife has been planning the cruise for quite awhile (took her about 10 years to convince me to go on one:lol:)

    I live up by Logan and yes I was thinking about maybe a little water skiing.
    I will plan on being there unless problems pop since I just put my mom in assisted living and my daughter has been diagnosed with cancer. I will just have to see how things go, a lot can change in 84 days.

    Well I am in The Salt Lake Area so let me know what is going on. If this new job comes about I will be in Logan about every 6 weeks. I used to go to Preston quite a bit as I have a friend who lives there.I know they have a grea.t car show in Logan and i missed by one number of getting a muscle car a few years back. Let me know if I can help.
    We need to find out how many will attend and as I said I will supply meat and maybe a few other items. Finances arent great so I need a head count so I don't go to far over my budget.
