Hey Tbird! Your better half is totally to blame. She twisted my arm sooooooooo hard it almost snapped.... :o Just kidding. I would not miss it on purpose. Haven't been on much this year. I know, I know, I am a bad unruly child. I'm sorry

There was nothing wrong with it last October 2 months after the flood. 

The road was a kinda bad but that was it.

Boo, are you sick? Somethings wrong with you posting in the day time. LOL!

I might be able to get a hall free or very cheap. Ya'll want me to see what I can find. This is the Hub City. and there's accommodations and food everywhere. I can't guarantee anything but I can check.

Look into a local VFW or American Legion. They usually have a good pavillian or banquet hall.

Ok something is wrong with my Internet or something. I was was trying to post earlier today.....

King Donald and I were talking about finding a new place for the GTG.

I was doing my Thursday night radio show with Todd Ortego tonight. So I was out of pocket. LOL..

Donald is welcoming me to help out with finding a place to have it this year.  I called him to let him  know that I found a  place.

We have been talking for a few days about this situation.

I am working on this to help out a lot. 

I found a nice place, but it's booked and we can't change the rules in the 3rd quarter of the game..

Too many people have made plans to come for the GTG..................

Such as Vince and other people that have made vacation plans to come to our event.

So I will talk more tomorrow about this situation. 

By the way Donald  wants me to take over the Get together.

I am very HUMBLED and think it's an HONOR to take over this project for him.

I will never be able to fill his shoes on this. Donald has done this for 8 years now and want's to relax a little.

I do need some support on this mentally and bodily.   

Thanks to all for support and please let us know if you can commit to coming this year >>>>>>>>>>>

Thank you for the update and for trying to find an alternative GTG venue Boo. Regardless of what happens I am coming to Louisiana, work vacation and airplane tickets have been booked several months ago.

Happy to organise for a 2018 GTG down under in Perth, Australia if that can help you and if we have many takers  ;)  ;)

It is not written in stone, but I have a place booked for the GTG on the 28th.

In keeping with Donald's wishes it is centrally located, good area and easy to find.

American Legion Hall in Mamou,  La.  I will get the address and post it soon.

For those camping Lakeview Park is only 4 miles from Mamou. Gopher Broke enjoyed his 4 months there.

Hotels are in Eunice and great prices. Holiday Inn Express is a good one.

The address is 399 5th. St. for you google users. It is very easy to find. Mamou police station is kitty korner from it and the post office is across the street.

Coming from hwy 13 you turn at the flag poles and the Mamou town monument. That is Main St. when you see the police station the building is on the right hand corner.............

Splain your "booked but not written in stone". Did the chiseler break his hand? Is the stone on back order?  Does the chiseler not know how to spell? Is the chisel on back order or the mallet? He lost his tool belt or safety glasses? His wife won't let him work on Fridays?

What gives Man, let us know....

American Legion Hall

The address to the place is 420 Main Street … Mamou, Louisiana

Easy to get to, here’s a map.  https://www.yellowpages.com/listings/504059315/directions

For those that were planning on staying at the park it’s not far so that’ll still work out fine.

Please let us know as soon as possible if you’re coming and what you plan on bringing.  That will give others an idea of what and how much is needed.

I didn't expect an answer, I knew you had it handled.

Thanks Donald and Boo for finding a new venue.

I had a chat with Zook for advice and I am now planning on bringing some boudin, beef jerky and some beer.

Thank you Donald for posting that...  Yes it is easy to get from the South Side of Chicot state park. In fact it might be the same mileage.....
