    Exclamation Spring Fire Up

    We failed to be able to put together a spring Q Joint Gathering in 2012. This was a shame, but people got busy and things just didn't happen.

    Do YOU have any ideas for throwing together a spring get together? If so, please post them here.

    We hove always done them in the KS,MO,AR,OK 4 state area, but nothing say we have to.

    The best facility would have a kitchen and a covered or indoor area in case of weather, but as we have seen in the past, it isn't 100% necessary.

    We should have a place for RVs as well as tent camping, and for the non campers, nearby, if not on site lodging.

    Everyone please chime in.

    There was a good bit of discussion at The Fling and some different sites were suggested. Joe and I have not had time to go scouting but we will. I've got deer season in the freezer and after Turkey Day I'll free up. Joe has this dang work problem. He likes to eat and have a roof over his head.
    We're looking.
    Finding a place with all the things you listed is tough. Especially a kitchen.

    Take a look at Natural Falls State Park, just off Hwy 412, near the Ark. border. I think they have what you are looking for

    If y'all are up for a road trip, I have connections with a great place in south GA. Nice campground right on the mighty Altamaha River just below the confluence of two other major rivers, the Ocmulgee & the Oconee. RV & primitive camping. For a group, tents would be allowed in the RV area. Full bathhouse in the RV park. Covered picnic shelters - one with sinks (no kitchen). Campground office has a large conference/meeting room. Kids playground, walking trails, fishing/boating/canoeing. I can help arrange a group canoe trip with a local outfitter is there is interest.

    The Altamaha River was named by the Nature Conservancy as one of the "75 Last Great Places" on earth.

    I was thinking that perhaps we might consider having it someplace else besides the Oklahoma, KS, MO,AR area Mike.

    I'm okay with that, but we gotta get it figured out early to make sure folks can set up any vacation time and get serious about attending. I'd love to meet some of the other people here.

    Whatever. I can roadtrip, and have. Enjoy it.
    Thing is, other than Travis no one has stepped up to organize an event any place else. And it's a shame we lost him.
    I'm like Joe, I'd love to meet some TQJ members from other areas.
