There is a reason that these folks have been getting together for 20+ years! If you've never attended, make plans now... "cuz you ARE invited to this gathering of tyers!
I understand that this event is too far from many of you, but if you do live in our general area, please join us at North Toledo Bend State Park this weekend.
If you have any questions, email me.
