Here is the link to Le Acadie RV park and Inn This place is newly renovated and is cheaper than Holiday Inn..  It is only 15 to 20 minutes from the hall in Mamou ...........

I will take a video when I go there and I will post that on here.   

The hall has all new hardwood floors and a A/C system.  There is a nice kitchen with the commercial stoves and ovens in it........ 

Plenty of tables and chairs like the one in Chicot so seating is not a problem.........

I already have the lesser cousin of the vegimite, which is marmite, to bring.  I have never tasted the vegimite so this will be interesting.

Several forum members have asked me how long I will stay in Louisiana for so here it is:

I will be arriving at NOLA on Tuesday 24th Oct and leaving on Friday 3rd Nov.

I stop over Seattle on the way in to visit my brother and his family.

Inbound flights are: Perth-Brisbane-Los Angeles-Seattle-New Orleans
Outbound flights are: New Orleans-Dallas-Sydney-Perth

Jet lag is going to be a killer  :o  :o but I can't wait  ;D

Sounds like a good place to have it.  Ben and Mary M will certainly try to be there, depending whether she has to work or not and how I feel at that time.   Not sure what we will bring (depends on roadkill collection lol) between now and then.   Will also bring door prize.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again and meeting Vince.

P.S.  Donald how about changing page 1 from "Bad news" to "Good news"

I have an update on the hall. I talked to Charles today and the hall is finished. All the trim and display cases and pictures are in place.

Charles is stuck at the hospital in Lake Charles getting patients in from Texas. He has been there since Sunday and won't be back home until Friday or Saturday. We will meet up this weekend and I will take a video and give ya'll a walk through..................

Yes T Bird it is changed, they called Donald and cancelled the meeting hall because of remodeling. So Donald asked me to take over for the event.

Same date on October 28th just a different place. It took me a while to find a place in such short notice and keeping with budget.
