Is this taking place on the south side of the lake? Was looking for properties that could be rented out.
Yep this will be taking place on the South End of the lake. For those looking to rent properties on the water you will want to look of place near the sand bar, which is located on more towards the South West side of the lake. There are properties on the east side but then can be anywhere from 500yards to a mile on the other side of the lake but is definitely doable.

I have stayed here many times and they rent rooms by the night http://www.northwindresort.com/fyi.htm
but there they fill up FAST!! so the sooner the better to call on that, they are also always having people back out of reservations too so just being on the list will give ya a better chance too.
There are many houses to rent on the lake but they can be quite expensive for one person or family, however most of them sleep 8+ adults so for those looking to plan way ahaead maybe multiple people can go in on one and save some dough.


I beleive we have reservations for the 12th thru the 19th of July.

I am 98% sure that it is going to be held on Saturday July 13th.
I dont know how I missed the updates on here, but yes lets go with 99.9% sure it will be July 13th.

Also I have plans of moving the riding area to the other side of the sandbar, we will have less boat traffic and will be less in the spot light. Also no rush but if someone is gonna bring a boat again perhaps you can get with me ahead of time and you can haul some fuel cans and scissor stands to the sandbar.

Any other suggestions keep em coming.... I don't know if I can do everything but ill try to make it as best as possible.

Also our video guy has finished the project ahead of the Torch video and is now working on our video. (he has a job outside of this and is doing this for free).

I'm in for at least the weekend at the campground. If Roo doesnt take the toy hauler, I'll tent it. And put me down for 2 shirts Jordan.
