KOTC Get-Together?

20 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I've been super busy this spring and have not had a chance to keep up on my FMing. Has there been any talk of a get-together this month like last year? I'd be willing to make some time for that one.

Nothing has been planned yet and not sure if there are any plans in the works.

Right now, any and all sandbars that would be potential gathering locations are sooooooo far under water that it isn't even funny.

Also IMO (just my opinion), the KOTC may have just gotten too big this year to have a gathering. It could be a logistical nightmare finding a sandbar with enough room, a launch with enough parking, etc.

Those are just my thoughts, but its not my contest either.

I’ve been back and forth about this for some time.

I really would like to have some sort of informal gathering. Sure would be fun to get a large group of us together to hang out and catch a few fish and share stories.

Hanson brings up some valid logistical issues. These issues compound exponentially as the group gets larger.

I’m open for ideas and would gladly be willing to hand off the planning of this to someone else wink

Feel free to contact me offline as well.

How about the Jordan Camp grounds plenty of space and very very close to the river. Just a thought.

Hmmmm. Jordan campgrounds (Minnesota Valley State Park) sounds good. Lots of river miles and great spots to be had.

Darren, if your looking for someone to do the legwork, look no more as I would be more than happy to line it up.

Let me know unless someone else has offered.

I was at last years in Mankato and had a blast! It was my first cattin' outing and what made me want to buy my first heavy duty fishing stick. It would be nice to do another get-together like that. I think we had about 4 boats on the river that night.

I think DTRO you should pick a date since your in charge of the KOTC. Then we can take a role call on who is interested. Once you know the amount of people we can decide on a place that can handle the group. Once the date is picked we will stick with it. I know some people will not beable to attend because of that date but thats the way it goes. I'm all in for what ever we come up with and will to help any way I can just let me know. Looking forward to meeting all who attend as I have only met a few FM'ers. Hanson always fun to take to Perkins. HA HA only a few of you know what I'm taking about there. WWG

I'd be up for doing a get together. Maybe we could all meet at the Perkins in Prior first and then head south shocked . I agree, pick a date and then plan around that.

I have retired from trying to organize cat gatherings, but doesn't mean I wouldn't attend one.

I think we should call ahead to Perkins and tell them we expect around 50 or so.

Just tell them we are showing up with two busses. Make sure the same waitress will be there, maybe request her. Then we'll just show up and not tell them we are the group..... laugh

I'd have to check to be sure, but I'd think the same "firewood supplier" from last year would be available....
