Geez, just looked at the weekly forecast (its a long ways off) but they are saying rain 80% chance next Friday and 40% Saturday with temps dropping back into the low 60's in Tonto basin, I had almost forgot since it hadn't happened in a few years that we have an event and the weather moves in :dontknow:

Does anyone out there need a partner?  Not sure if my boat is going to be GTG by then.  If it's not I'll need to backseat with someone.

 :celebrate:We couldn't rent an RV for the weekend due to the fact that Country Thunder is going on and all the RVs are GONE. We will, however, bring the boat and fish and be there for the meeting and winning the fabulous prizes on Saturday. Should we bring some walleye?

Mike, I'm going to bring up a bunch of crappie and walleye. If everyone that has a few fillets to share bring a few just in case we need some extra, that would be great

Hey all looking forward to seeing everyone in just a few days.  Please don't forget to print out both the camping forms (attached to the top of this post) and have them filled out and signed.  Dave "Sparkchaser" will be going around nightly to get everyone's and would make it easier if you have them filled out.  We need these filled out by both AZCA members and non-members.
