    Re: collind fest

    Seems like a lot of people are interested and
    want to do this fest at Collins.I for
    one am in for it.
    I know that the last few fests at Collins we were all
    scatterd thru out the camp ground but found a
    common place to hang out at some ones camp spot.
    We all did the pot luck thing and things turned out great.
    If this gets off the ground I plan on making it a 4-5 day
    thing cause I've got vacation time to burn.
    If the weather is good The early part of April
    is good for me.I still tent camp and try to get
    space 79.

My suggestion is for a bunch of members to just plan on the open camping area on a date and go. If you are one who makes a more expensive reservation and only 3 people show, well you can have a pleasant weekend of fishing and camping and that isn't bad.
    Like I said I am not an organizer so maybe I am missing something but the organizer really can't make people go camping and show up. I have no idea how the prior organizers got sites reserved and then arranged for everyone to pay their own way. I don't camp there but I do fish there.

    Man that sure is a lot of info from someone who doesn't want to organize it.... hahahaha

    Maybe get some input from Collins "regulars"? They could give info on camp areas, etc.

    I think Waterdog has taken the bait. That date works for me. I might even be able to talk Okie and Hooks into going. I cant comment on a campground because I have never been to the lake.

    Re: collind fest

    It appears that there is a lot of interest in a Collins Fest. So this may happen. I don’t think organizing it would be a big deal. You just need someone to be in charge of a Fest thread and that person has to generally organize a few things similar to the way the Pyramid Fest goes.
    Im not yet ready to volunteer but I’m going to ask 2 questions and go from there.
    First as far as dates what do you all think about the weekend of April 28? That’s 2 weeks after the Pyramid Fest so it won’t conflict with that fest and as I understand the lake lice aren’t yet out there?
    Second who knows of a camp ground there we could use?
