Thought I'd post this on the main board incase some folks don't visit the Ky. board.

Well folks, the time is drawing near. We are in the process of gathering up door prizes for this year's Shindig. If you would like to donate a door prize just PM myself or ifish.

The event will take place at Big Bear Resort campground, Oct. 5th, 6th, & 7th, and will be hosted by myself at Lot 73.

If you would like to come earlier and spend more time camping & fish'n that's fine too. I'll be at my camper with my lovely wife about all that month. There are plenty of camp sites available at Big Bear but I would make reservations in advance. Big Bear's # is 270-354-6414. When you call to make reservations, tell them you are participating in the crappie.com tournament/get together, and inquire about a discount for tournament fishermen. Also make sure you mention their add on crappie.com's website. There are also some reasonably priced motels within a short drive of Big Bear. If you are not staying at Big Bear there is a $5 per person, per day cover charge to cover insurance. Please stop by the office/marina and get a car pass for the day(s) you will be there.

As posted earlier, Friday will be a meet & greet with a pot luck supper. We would like to have a friendly tournament Sat morning till about 1 PM. Keep what ya catch & weigh in your best 7. Two person teams are fine. Prizes will be awarded for 1st. 2nd. & 3rd place. We can also have a "Big fish" pot if y'all like. Saturday evening we'll have a big fish fry with all the fixn's. Sunday is a "do what ya want day" and you're welcome to come set on my deck and visit if ya want. I can seat about 20.

If you were thinking about an early fall trip, this would be a GREAT choice. Learn a little about the lake form some of the best crappie fishermen on the North end of KY Lake. The outlook for the next few years is AWESOME! The last few years we have had some terrific/record spawns and the numbers are really picking up!

I want to remind everyone that I'm taking donations of non-perishable food items/can goods. These items will be donated to Martha's Vineyard in the name of crappie.com members. Miss Martha is a great, christian lady, who donates her time & resources to feed 1000's of needy during the year. With the holidays coming up, this will really help her out.

Please go to this thread ( http://www.crappie.com/crappie/kentucky/224760-2012-north-ky-lake-shindig-sign-up.html#post2021385 ) to let us know if you are coming and how many will be in your party. It is very important that we get a close count on attendees so we can figure out how much food we need. Last year we thawed out twice as much fish as we needed.

Check the Kentucky board for updates.

Come visit with some great people/fishermen.

Hope to see y'all there.
