    I guess it's my turn to host a picnic. I will let everyone know now it will be scheduled for, Sunday, June 14th. This gives everybody 5 months to keep that day open. No excuses (except having to work). I have picked this day for a few reasons....
    1. It is Flag Day
    2. It is FREE fishing weekend
    3. Bass season is open

    I plan on having it at Hopkins Lake in E.Collamer Park, just south of Owosso. It has pavilions, hibachis, a sand volleyball court, plenty of parking and a fair size lake with some HUGE fish in it. I have caught 5lb large mouth bass out of it, along with tons of bluegills for the little ones to play with. Only drawback "No Swimming". Sorry! We can't quite have everything in one place. There is a floating dock (anchored to shore) and plenty of shore fishing available. Boats are allowed, electric motors only. I will have it posted on the events thread a little closer to the date. I have high hopes we can get at least 100 people for this one.

    edit for corrections

    In the summer, when I don't have school, I'll probably be working with the union, and taking into account the union over time wages, there's probably no way I'll have to worry about working on a sunday. It's a long way away, but count me in. Hopefully with friends.

    The use of force is a last resort. One aspect of violence is that it is unpredictable. Although your initial intention may be to use limited force, once you have engaged in violence the consequences are unpredictable. Violence always brings about unexpected results and almost always provokes retaliation.

    As a former Owosso resident, I wish I could say I'll be there with you. It would be a bit more of a trip that I want to take, though.....

    Be careful what you ask for, WARCHILD... you might just get it!

    (The desert I'm playing in these days is a lot further away than the one in my profile location.... you might have to earn your handle if you come over here!)

    Jerry, the name of the park at Hopkins Lake you discussed on 3/21/09 SAS is Gerald E. Collamer Park that is just South of Baker College-Owosso. I'll add the correct name of the park to the Events Thread.

    Ok members, it's all set up.
    I just reserved two pavilions for us...from 10 a.m. to dusk.
    There was a $35 deposit...(refundable)... if we clean up after ourselves and don't damage any property.

    FYI: I will have my boat there. You will have to row unless you bring your own 12volt battery for the trolling motor. My batt. won't hold up all day. I will also bring a few extra fishing poles. You will have to have your own tackle/bait. I only use artificial..(and no one gets in my tackle box). For those of you who bring the "little ones" (please do), come see me if you need a pole. Mine are a collection of poles over the years and no harm if they get broke or fall in the water. I will be doing some fishing myself and if I get a good one on the hook I would like to hand my pole to one of the kids and watch them "haul one in". That's more exciting to watch than doing it myself (hold over from scouts).
    That's all for now, will update any new info.
    And remember....."PARTY ON DUDES"....:celebrate
