    goldeneye, I think you should continue going forward with your original plan at the preserve in Granite Falls. If there are only 5 or 6 of us that show up so be it. We'll run the dogs, shoot some pheasants and have a lot of fun. Some how I have a sneaky feeling that by the time the event comes to be you will have a few more people there.

    Maybe we can also do something like FC has proposed after the first of June. Most trials should be done and hopefully the weather won't be too hot.

    You guys just need to take a good plan and do it. You won't ever get everyone to agree.

    Personally I'm looking forward to it. I get to run my dog, shoot some birds and have some great social time with my fellow hunters from this site. Doesn't get an better than that!

    Ditto what Zeb says. I have put a trips together on other sites since 2003. Stick to your plan, you started it and trust me, people want a sure thing, lead by someone dedicated to a plan. Your doing good Lee. If I can at all help it. I will try and be there. I think it sounds like a great time. The next few weeks and doctors appointment will tell me a lot.

    Yeah your right, it would be a hoot to meet you guys, I have all sorts of questions to ask. Maybe if Webguy put some incentive like a UPH hat I might try to make it.

    I agree as said, stick with your plan, we can try something a bit later as well. It's not as if us Minnesotans live all that far from eachother, and Zeb and others are a rock toss away.

    When you think you are smarter than your dog, ask your self who cleans up who's poo.

    We are penciled in for April 2

    I said we would like to start at noon. (Travel time for a few of us I thought this would be good )
    There is no real end time.

    I was told we can have the back room they can cater food if we would like.

    They said we would get a couple strips of land? where we could run two dogs per one strip easy.

    I have never been here before but I was told by a friend of mine to use them. They have got to be the easiest people to deal with.


    Any questions let me know I am sure I will have to call them again anyway.

    I've been working with Lee on this get together and when we get closer to the time we will be taking a head count on hunters and dogs. We will establish some simple guidelines for the event just to keep it organized. Depending on the number of dogs, we may have to limit the number of dogs in the field at any one time. I've got 2 dogs and I only plan on bringing one just to simplify things.

    Until we have a better handle on the number coming we won't be able to determine an exact format of the event. Things may change depending on whether there are 6 guys there or 16. I'm sure everyone can understand that. The main thing we want to accomplish is to make it a fun and enjoyable event for everyone. We're still 2 1/2 months away from April 2nd so please bear with us.

    I'm not trying to steal Lee's (goldeneye) thunder here since he is "The Man", just trying to help him.

    I stole the idea from (GustavDaGSP) I talked with him and we decided on the location. Since I have no idea what i'm doing I asked you (Dakotazeb)for help.
    There is no thunder stealing more like a HOT potato.
    You just saved me a lot of typing thanks
