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....

    • Ever notice how the politically bias media does everything it can to keep you voting for one side or another, can't let any 3rd parties in because the powers that be lose control. They are doing an amazing job with our minds that is for sure, both sides.
    • I would regulate the drugs just like alcohol, pretty easy actually. Now we would have to draw a line in the sand on what drugs are legal and which to keep illegal, we can't use public opinion for this because that is what got us in trouble in the first place. There have been numerous studies on drugs that at least give us an idea on how dangerous they are, things will get a little confusing because some legal drugs now are the most dangerous but there is no reason to go backwards with those drugs because we have already been there and it didn't work. I can't possibly cover every detail in a post so I am guessing you want to know which drugs to make legal and which should remain banned.

      Lethal dose chart, one could make a case for drawing a diagonal line to the right of caffeine.


      This chart can be a little deceiving because obviously some drugs that are used more than others but it tells an interesting story none the less.


      Another physical harm chart, these may or may not work but again just a guideline on drugs we could consider for legalization.
    • Anyone have one?  Last year they ran them on sale for $200 at the local farm n fleet.  That happens again i might have to gets me one!
    • Before anyone goes out and buys an ION....     Also Dewalt has a 9ah battery now too.   http://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWALT-FLEXVOLT-20-Volt-60-Volt-Lithium-Ion-9-0-Ahr-Battery-Pack-DCB609Y/300610594?cm_mmc=Shopping|THD|G|0|G-BASE-PLA-D25T-PowerTools|&gclid=CjwKEAiArbrFBRDL4Oiz97GP2nISJAAmJMFah6JUW7Wlbuw6Pzzf6CZFbYHwv3JOUaeQnfyiJpPemhoCm_Xw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

    • So should I get a reality show first? Trust me the two parties are going to great job of taking themselves out. I am also unelectable with the current mindset the voters have so don't worry about me.

      In other news who needs Russia when the DHS is trying to hack our elections? Sure they might have been just been looking for weaknesses but it does seem a little unsettling that the fed wants to get their hands on the state systems.

    • Please describe in detail why the war on drugs has been successful and why we should continue with the same policies we have had for the past 3 decades or so.    I am really wondering what the timeline is for these policies to start working.
    •   If you use Prohibition as an example, speakeasies turned into bars and nightclubs, and bootleggers turned into pimps and politicians.  So that option for drug dealers is still open.   Of course if prostitution was legalized, about the only thing left would be to get into politics, so I guess some of them might have to turn to more honest professions like drug counseling or working for the FDA....   Drug stores could still operate under the eagle eye of the FDA and federal revenuers, and keep us all safe.   The big question is what would all the Carrie Nations of the world do?                                        
    •   The Republican party was originally formed as an opposition party to the Federalists, so now that the DNC and the RNC are both federalists, there is still room for a true republican party.
    • Is it happening this year?
