With all the new members and the good old ones-shouldn't we be thinking about a FBF Rally this fall? We are located to most of the group and the weather will be warmer longer. Pickwick-tour Pier 57-great BBQ or Smith lake in North Ala. Any fly-ins can be picked up in Memphis, Nashville or Birmingham. Just an offer-but I will go with the group.

Any ideas?

FIne-but probably before Oct-might get too cold to swim- or later, if we just want to cruise. Great State Park Lodges/rooms and cabins at Ky dam-Grand Rivers, KY.

I have a good friend, a retired tug captain, that lives in Grand Rivers by Kentucky Dam. He catfishes almost every day of the year. We can have an early am catfishing trip below the day for the guys that are sober-then he would probably fry them up for us that night. 2-3 miles uo from the dam is a cut through to Lake Barkley. Both lakes have good marinas spaced up river for good runs and refreshments. Cumberland is supposed to be nice, although I haven't been there. Keep the suggestions going-maybe something will work out.

Note: yellow boats are banned from participation. The group can't afford the liability coverage.

I will also have to arrage for professional courtesy from the local agency of competent jurisdiction-just to cover OB and BN.

Kebtucky/barkely is ok, that is where I boat. Only problem is that by mid Sep they are at winter pool. The water level only drops 5' but thats alot for lakes with an average depth of only 12'. Would be ok as long as you only run in the channels fast and be real careful if you are going into any coves. The rock Quarry is a big hang out- No problem there 110' deepest part of the lake. Cumberland is supposed to be real nice. Have not been yet.

We did Cumberland 2 years ago and it was great! It's huge, deep, and there are lots of places to go. There is a big marina/hotel called Jamestown there that has some really nice facilities and a huge dock.

BUT....there's always a BUT...It is surrounded by dry counties so you have to bring all your booze with you:mad:

gilla, you will be close to me (few hours) once I move to GA (Columbus). I have a time-share on Lake Martin (have not used it in forever). It is a nice lake too. The water is very clear and stays warm there. Ther is allways Lake Lanier too.

My boat would be like the S.S. Minnow out there on Lake Michigan. I would end up like the Edmund Fitzgerald, the way I drive out there. Would defintely be time for a new boat after that trip. Besides my Insurance would not cover me out there. I have inland waters only for now. However, 22' boat, 5-6 foot chop, Big block power, could defintely be fun.

Hmmmm... let's see

I can't trailer my boat.

Jeff and I and a few others are right here on the Chesapeake Bay.

We have a million things to do and some great places to go.

Yep, my vote goes for the Chesapeake:D
