Default Another AOF Gathering !!

We had such a awesome time at the last gathering, some of us have decided to do it again. This time it will be on Aug 21, 22, 23. It will be in the bush country - west of Caroline ( jts1 will put up a link to a map with the GPS co-ordinates and directions )
Now granted we won't be right on a lake - BUT depending on what you want to fish for ( Pike , Perch , Lakers , Rainbows , White fish and maybe even some little Brookie's ) and depending on your style of fishing ( fly , spin , bait , trolling ...ect ) - Alford lake, Tay lake, Swan lake and the Clearwater River are less than 10min away, Phyllis lake is about 20 min. Cow lake , Mitchelle lake , Struble lake and Buntstick lake are about 35 to 45 mins away.
If your not interested in fishing it's also great place for camping , quading , hiking/walking or just to get out and relax to get some fresh air.
The access is good if you have a trailer and it's not too far down the gravel road. If you're gonna bring a boat it's only a short drive to the lake of your choice.
There are no camping fees - that also means there is no facilities -we would be " roughing it " so to speak. We also don't have to worry about the noise levels after dark or running out of fire wood.
We picked a more northern spot hoping to get some of the " northerners " to come down and have a good time with us " southerners ". ( gonna put the local detachment on speed dial ..lol )
Anyone who is interested in coming along - put up a post or shoot me a PM ( so we have an idea of how many are coming ).
So for those of you that missed the last one here's your chance, it's gonna be another good time - you don't wanna miss it.

That sounds awesome, I was so bummed I missed the one at PCR. I might drive up as I want to visit Caroline one afternoon but if anyone needs a ride too let me know.

I'd like to reserve one spot in your RV if possible Michelle, I have a tent but if it rains it's never fun in it. I'm pretty sure I don't snore....at least too badly

Now the important question, food!

I will do everything possible to make it again. Corn should be ready by then too , even better than that Hutterite stuff It will be a long drive, hopefully there will be room to pitch a tent in the dark, without tripping over another wire fence

Well looks like its time for another little gathering. Steve took me up north and had a great little spot close to a few lakes and close enough for you northern boys to come on down. Its should be a good time as always. Here is a map of the directions. We will post signs at the entrance off highway and campsite.

http://maps.google.ca/maps/ms?hl=en&...1a238eeefd&z=8

And GPS Coordinates
LAT N52 2' 34.4" LON W115 9' 30.7"

Hope to see you all there..... Its going to be sooooo creamy

Looks interesting. Is this just after the second road, entering Swan Lake? Know the area, so it might just have to be put on the calender.

Kinda sorta - You go down highway 591 til you reach the SWAN LAKE ROAD ( turn right ) travel up the road ( north - about 2 kms ) til you reach the " Y " which is the TAY ROAD ( turn right again ) go another 300 yards and you're at the spot ( it's at the top of the little hill on the left )

Swan lake is still about 12kms away from the camping spot.

I will bring my camper and I have a tent that will sleep two if any one needs to use it they are welcome to it. Should be a blast.

Default Excellent!!

Another oppertunity to shreik in front of good friends. Dial me up for one camp spot please, this will be my second trip up there in a few weeks.

Is everyone up for a pot luck again? I can bring anything from corn to cataracts. (JTS1 and his Jameson-vision-reducing-juice)

Wayne, I am going for your title belt fella! I want to see if it is humanly possible to out fish you.

Lets do a group photo and send it into the AO presses, cover page 2010 Regs???!!

Looking forward to seeing you all again!

Great, save us one spot. And yes, I'll keep the dogs in ours.

It is awesome. I missed the last AOL gathering at pCR while I was in Kelowna. What is the deadline to register this event? I have to talk to my wife and have her permission first

I missed the last one as well, have to check the schedule but I think it will be OK for us to make it as well, unless we'll be in the field harvesting that early....

Hey wayne,
soon as i saw someone was bringing along small hairless dogs I thought of you........... oops...........in terms of pike fishing of course LOL, Thats too funny because Im always threatining my girlfriend that Im going to use her two (Chiwauas) for pike bait. Cant spell the %$#@ things so I guess I will use them for bait.

Cool not to far from me I guess only 2 hrs from Exshaw? I am a pretty new member here but I just might make the trip, ya'll seem like a good group of people. Have never fished near there so that in itself is reason enough to take a day or 2 off (I work to much anyway).
