Goldflinger had a great idea,12volts system and holding tank. It would be so great if we could all have what we want but that is just not the way it is. Thank you so much Ron for getting the info for us. Not considering the extra $20 per day traveling to and from the shoot you have to consider the time which we will now be spending sitting around be lazy and lying alot about shots we have made and rabbits we have killed. Everyone needs to be there so we can have a Grand Ole Time.

    BACK TO TOPIC.....sorry Ron
    No sorry necessary. That's why this thread exists, to get a count and to recruit folks to come to the shoot.

    Do you need hookups ? If so I would give Glenn at B&B a call. His number is in the first post. If I get a chance I'll give him a call myself and post what he says.

    OK, I just spoke to Glenn at B&B again...

    There is an Indiana State Park about 7 miles from Bass and Bucks with full hookups.

    The name is Mississinewa Reservoir...
    The general information line is: 765-473-6528
    The reservation line is: 1-866-622-6746
    You can also make reservations at www.camp.in.gov

    Glenn said they have concessions, full hookups, primitive camping, a nice beach, nice bathrooms, etc... He said it was a very nice place.

    However depending on how many people turn out a 14 pound turkey may not be enough... Hummmm.....

    I suppose we could pick up some chicken pieces, some Shorlunch breading and make some fried chicken too since the oil will already be hot. Fried chicken takes next to no time to cook up...

    OK, I'll provaide more information about the Mississinewa Reservior campground, including availabe came site numbers and counts, for your viewing pleasure...

    -Electric RV/camper sites close to non-electric camping:

    40 yards from bath-house
    30 amp electric
    Site 379 availabe, right next to water supply
    Site 380 available, about 25 yards from water supply
    $25 a night

    -Full hookup, water, grey/black water hookup, 30 amp electric

    Sites 147 and 150 available, 60 yards to bath-house
    Heck, forgot to ask the rate on those.... Sorry...

    -33 non-electric sites available. $13 a night weekend, $10 weekday.
    -70+ electric sites availabe. $25 a night.

    Waste water dump available for all campers....

    If we all stayed there we would not all be right next to each other but within easy walking distance. Bathroom, bath-house and water issues are solved as far as I'm concerned.

    I see this as a possible option too for the rest of us.

    The downside is that we're not with a bunch of other archers, probably...
    And it being a IN DNR state park we will likely not be able to just set up a range and shoot.

    At B&B, we could shoot our socks off on their range, with their targets.

    But, a plus would be a beach (wives, kids would like it), nicer shower situation (probably), nicer bathroom situation (probably) and a little more access to water and electric.

    Any thoughts ?

    I'm still leaning toward B&B for the 'tent's' of us. The option of the state park seems great for the trailers/campers and possibly for the rest of us too.

    I spoke to a gal named Latoya and said this is Ron representing a group from 3D Shoots. She wrote that down. I said I would tell you guys to mention that if we did call for reservations so they could do their best to get us sites close to the trailers. But you trailer pulling folks will need to take the first step, ASAP, and establish yourself there with a camp site number and then let us know what your plans are so we can follow behind.

    I'm not a beach combing kind of guy but if we choose to stay there I'll probably show up a day or two early, get an IN fishing license, and do a little wading....

    If we knew about this place months ago we would literally be all set. That's not the case now so we'll have to work through it.

    We're working with ya Smokes....

    You are correct, unfortunately. I have been more than happy to make the calls and get real information we can use.

    I'm looking forward to this and it sounds like you guys are too. We'll have some fun for sure.

    Glenn at B&B is such a nice guy and has been so helpful that it's hard not to take him up on his offering. Ya know ? You just want to patronize somebody like that because they have such good customer relations. That's what's missing these days. Nice people helping others.

    Today he also told me about how some of the targets are going to be set up. I'm not telling, exactly, but it sounds like it's going to be really cool.

    Furthest from far stake will be about 52 yards he said.

    They are also going to set up targets based on the natural habitat of the animal depicted (where appropriate and possible... Alien ???? Space ? I don't think so....)....

    Should be some fun stuff going on.... A lot of laughing and a lot of crying (when Bunnyboy blows arrows up)....

    If anyone has anything else to post or suggest feel free. This is rolling along pretty well I think.

    I still need to give Glenn a vehicle and tent count (approximate). I told him I would have that in two weeks or so. Post up, if not already, and let me know what your plans are so he can set us up with our own area.

    We gotta get Chris to get us a 3D-Shoots sign/banner or hats or something. That would be pretty cool.

    I'll PM him.

    Point taken. I'd love to have us all together. If you talked to Glenn you would know about the state park and would have jumped on that in a second. You spoke to him in FEB ? They probably had NO reservations for August at that time and it would have been a slam dunk to get a whole damn area for us back then.

    I did not see a post about that park. Maybe that's my oversight because I was crazy busy with work in FEB.... But I doubt a post about that park existed.

    Like I said in my PM I an not sorry for doing what I did because it was a simple fact that based on what people posted they did not want to drive 40 minutes each way, twice a day, between a campground and a shoot site. Neither did I and I said so.

    Another thing was that nobody was doing anything to offer an alternative with useful information so I did it myself. By making calls and getting facts and posting those facts for people to have an opinion on. I did not set the stage for changing your plans, I offered an incredibly good option to what you wanted to do.

    So far, you're the only one that has on opinion that sides against my information, and you continue to fight it even though I followed though on your behalf to find an alternative for ALL of us to be at for the shoot, just 7 miles away.... I guess I just don't get it....

    Maybe you need to be the GUY.... If you wanted to be the GUY you would have did some studying, sharpened your pencil and turned in your homework for all of us to read and consider.

    UGH!!!! I just read through this whole thread....I wish I were going, but we are so broke right now, we can't even...nevermind

    IF I were going, I say B&B would be the best place. I would not want to drive ANYWHERE after shooting and/or a couple beers.

    IF I were camping somewhere else, I would be happy just to go shoot with everyone, sit around their campfires, eat their food , then go back to my camp and go to bed....Oh, I for got and drink their beer
