Hi Ryan - Just wanted to let you know, gzacckey and I will be staying in West Springfield, at the Sunset Motel. Due to the long drive for us, our old bones are better suited to a nice comfy motel room.

Any thoughts as to when we're gonna meet at the pavillion Saturday morning? Keep in mind that sunrise is at 7:25AM, and it would be a good thing to get out on the creek early to stake out a spot. Depending on what time you pick, we're gonna hit the Girard Diner for breakfast, and then scoot over to Folly's to meet everyone - it's 15 minutes away from the diner. The diner is open all night on Friday. Anyone that wants to join us is most welcome (hint, hint, Jack).

We'll still plan on the 8PM get together at the Avonia Tavern on Friday night, but once we have the pavillion on Saturday night, that sounds like the logical meeting place. If you think we should meet at the pavillion on Friday night instead, just say the word.

My plans as of right now are to come up just for Saturday and Sunday. The pavillion will be reserved for all 3 days. I will probably camp out as long as the weather's good. If it's not then I'll stay with someone I know fairly locally. I plan on being up to Folley's around 7. If you have ever fished Folley's then you know that it rarely gets so bad that you can't find a spot within the first 1/2 mile. You can walk just a bit and find fish with no one over them. I have no worries about getting a spot, it's not like the mouths. I can probably be there earlier, but that means no donuts lol (they open at 5am and takes me 2 hours to get to Erie).

It would be nice to toss Jim at Folly's a few bucks from camp sites and stuff in his shop for the hospitality of letting us use the pavillion as a meeting place.


If anyone else plans on camping out, let me know. Jim at Folly's would like to know a number in the next 2 weeks of how many will be camping.

It'll be me, my buddy greg (groove790) and a buddy of mine who checks out things on here and his son. We'll all be camping out pending bad weather.

OK then - so this is the plan:

Friday - 8PM @ Avonia Tavern

Saturday - 6AM Breakfast @ Girard Diner

Saturday - 7AM @ the pavillion at Folly's

Saturday - after dark @ the pavillion at Folly's

Sunday - repeat Saturday.

This gives anyone that may straggle in an idea of where to find us. I'd imagine that some folks will bring their tying stuff along, and maybe an evening tying session would generate a little business for Jim's shop. I have no problem with kicking in a few bucks for Jim as well, for letting us use his facility.

Ryan - Thanks again for getting this thing rolling and organized. Looks like you got a whole bunch of us fired up and ready to go!

No problem. I'm on the phone or writing emails for work all the time, might as well do some good and organize a fishing trip lol. Hope a bunch of us can come out. It'll be nice to see everyone again that was at the trout JAM and also meet some new faces.

Yes, but not the cleanest of showers.
The latest I've tented there was late October and the water was still running, so I assume they keep them going year round.

I will try for at least a day of the fly fishing stuff. If you have not fished for chrome before attending will cut the curve dramatically. See you there bibbys.

I should be in Erie next Monday or Tuesday fyi.
