New York IS Gathering 2012!!!
« on: Feb 01, 2012, 03:19 PM »
Here it is fellas!
Judging by another thread there's quite a demand for a gathering this year.
Southbay has quickly been agreed upon by Combsey, step2jimi, RoundlakeNY, and I. That can still be left open to change to Schroon or elsewhere in the area if enough people call for it.
We did this on Lake George 2 years ago and had a blast. We just set a date and time and showed up. No obligations fellas. Keeping it as simple as possible keeps it the most fun. Bringing some sort of food to share is more than welcome, but again, no obligations. I've got a little Coleman suitcase stove I can use to fire up some sausage or brats. We can do something similar to what we did for Sunfish again also (Kudo's to CaptJJ for coming up with that idea)
Before we dive into all of those details. We'll give it a full day for guys to speak up that would rather see this happen at Schroon or somewhere in between there and Southbay. I'm guessing a few weeks from now would be good. If we're still in agreement with our spot tomorrow we'll set it in stone and come up with a date.
Sound good?
I have a feeling this could quickly become bigger than the 2010 gathering.
The date and spot have been settled. Feruary 26, Sunday at the South Bay boat launch. Some of us will be camping out on the lake the night before. Feel free to join us.
The angle of the dangle is directly proportionate to the heat of the beat.

I could maybe have my arm twisted  ;)   Sounds like a cool idea.  South bay......not familiar with it at all.  Is it the one I found on the map just east of Lake George??

I have never met many people on this site, although many have provided me much assistance in the past. 
I would enjoy putting a face to the tagname. 
I'm in.

Yes it is. Easy to find with a little Map Questing.
Here a couple links to threads devoted to the 2010 gathering for anyone that's interested.

You're allowed 15 on Champlain.
Ill say, it's a ton of work though.
I'm thinking 2 or 3 weeks from now would be perfect. They should be driving car and trucks on that ice down there by next week.

Don't plan it around me. Two years ago we waited until after the LG Winter Carnival, and for nicer weather. We already have that this year, question is will the ice be good in March? I would like to fish South Bay though.

One thing I've learned about planning: Just pick the best date you can.  If people want to, they'll be there.
