    We used to do a spring meet, late April, at the Waco North Camp grounds. Just out of West Texas. It all went well for about 6 years, and then it just seemed to loose interest by the members attending. Some of them were just to far away to make it every year. Charles (blueseas), a member here, but isn't to active, owns the Waco North Campgrounds, and is willing for us to meet there. He has a smoker, and a kitchen, so we could cook what ever we wanted to. Cabins to stay in are right there on site, the type you find in the KOA campgrounds. Tent camping is also available. Public bathrooms, as well as a washer, and dryer. TFF members get a discount. I know that there are several people interested in kicking this meet off again, but are there enough? As of right now I think we could possibly count on at least 4 folks, and families. Anyone else interested?

    Thinking is all we are doing at this point. If we find that there is enough interest, then we will proceed with plans for a meet in April, probably the last weekend of the month.

    I'm onboard and can help make arrangements. I can bring a single stage press and equipment if anyone is interested in reloading. I'll buy a brisket to donate too, just don't have the smoker.

    I'm interested, but now that I'm working again, it will depend on scheduling.

    A couple more interested parties, and we'll start a head count. I'll call Charles, and get with him on dates.

    I'm going to try to make it if I can. I've wanted to go for 3 years now and have not been able to.
