After my last post noticed I had a new personal message, Hoy Hunter and his son are interrested that raises the total to seventeen. The general fishing chat forum is becoming more active so we should get more posts on this topic.

I did some internet surfing earlier and found the following websites that might be of use if we have the gathering at Oneida Lake. Madison county tourism (www.madisontourism.com ) Oneida county tourism (Oneida county tourism.org)
   below is a list of members who have expressed interest so far .

   1. Gambell
    2. Nyiceman
    3. Bart
    4. Pooley - also suggests Lake George or smaller regional gatherings
   5.Tracker 1 -Oneida lake or Sandy pond
    6. Fish for Pike and friend
    7.Cnypanfisher- small gatherings or Sandy pond
     8.Chiefcatchemall
    9.Cnyiceboy -  Sandy pond
    10. leon L.
     11. D.e.a.f.g.u.y. - Oneida Lake meet at Verona Beach state park
    12.Jimmy Claude
    13.Pasquatch - will depend on college schedule also needs transportation
    14.Yo1157
     15.Hoyt hunter and son
     16.Kirkville 1 and two sons
     17. Run320083 - depends on date of gathering
     18. Mr.Clean
    This brings us to twenty two people if my math is correct . To date we have had three people suggest Sandy pond as site for the gathering . Tothose people and any one else could you please give the rest of us some info. on this body of water -location ,available parking ,near by lodging for those like myself traveling a distance, thank you .

Hole Hawg,
  Thank you for the post Sandy pond is one of three lakes suggested to hold a mass (state wide ) gathering of New York Ice Shanty members . The other to lakes suggested are Oneida Lake (Syracuse- Utica- Rome ,NY. ) and Lake George. I am currently waiting for member responses after Dec. 1,2008 a poll will be posted to determine the lake and possibly date for the gathering. So far the majority of members replying are alright with the gathering being held on Oneida Lake, the date of Feb.14,2009 -snow date Feb.15,2009. this is the Saturday and Sunday of Presidents holiday weekend. Go to page two of this thread for more details.
    One question for you or any one else am I right that Sandy Pond is Located in the Pulaski,NY. area .I can not find it on the NY. state road map I own ,hope to get out to Gander Mountain or other sporting goods store by me this weekend and purchase Sportsmans connection book for western NY. state.
 If you or others can post or pm me some more info. it would be greatly appreciated. This event is open to members in surrounding states and Canada ,if you are willing to make the drive.     Steve

pulaski is a long run for the southern guys, so that is why i was saying regional get togethers. lake george is a long run for western people. oneida is ok, but we need to vote, or something. the weather could kill the gathering, so it needs some tweaking. how flexible is everyone? i will start athread for the south.

Hole Hawg,
    Thank you for the information I believe you meant to say Interstate 81 instead of Int.84 , I found Sandy Creek,NY. on my road map .
    I have a favor to ask of any members who live in the Oneida Lake Area could you please check to see if Syracuse Univ. ,Turning Stone Casino and Onondaga county coliseum have events scheduled for Feb.14-15 .This could make finding lodging difficult for people like me who will be traveling a distance, thank you .
    Also one question for those members who have responded to this thread, I originally stated that a poll would be posted around Nov.15 to determine the lake and date of Gathering. I revised this to a poll after Dec.1 this thread has had a little over 900 hundred views and only twenty some odd replies . So should I wait or see how to post a poll already or since the majority of replies are alright with Oneida Lake and Sat. Feb. 14 Just say this will be the location and date of a state wide gathering of NY. Ice Shanty members.
     I guess it is really two questions ,looking forward to your respones.

  Steve

Mr.Clean, 

Give it time,  not many people have shown up yet.  You will see a drastic upswing in NY members in a couple of weeks.

I would like to be in.  I haven't fished Onieda since I was a kid.  That was the first place my father tried to off me.....good times...good times.  Onieda has good access and lots of little mom and pop hotels around.  look up the local chamber of commerce.  The locals cater to ice fisherman so you will be able to piece together any last min stuff.  It freezes up in good time.  It is accessable from anywhere in the state without the use of extensive directions.  We are probably only going to get 30 people at best.  Plus guests.  A vote in December might hamper resevations but the later the vote the better count you will get.  Hard to plan out too far.
If life were easy everybody would have one.

To all who have responded to my last post (eve.Oct.26) thank you. I realize trying to plan an outdoor winter event in a state of New York's size is not going to be easy,My concern with Oneida Lake is its location to some major attractions Syracuse university (athletic events ) Turning Stone Casino and Onondaga county war memorial (Major name entertainer (s) preforming at the last two mentioned) could -will draw large numbers of people to the area taking up a good amount of lodging .
  Gambell the first to respond to this thread suggested Oneida Lake for its central location in the state .(It is propably a two hour drive from his home just west of Rochester up near Lake Ontario ). Raquette Dacker Otesgo Lake may be located to far east for some members in the western part of the state . Fish King567 the same holds true with Lake Pleasant. (my humble opion only)
    If this becomes a yearly event we could -can move its' location around the state to give as many members as possible a chance to attend , Tracker 1 also mentioned this to me in a personal message.
  Also as all of you may have seen notice of annual tournaments,derby's contests are being posted in the NY. forum and in the Ice fishing events forum. Ice shanty members could arrange to meet at any one of these events. You may have noticed that member Pooley is trying to organize a gathering of southeast NY. members.
    Unless I get many replies suggesting otherwise I plan on waiting till Dec.1 to have a poll posted to determine final location and date . I agree the later date for the poll will allow for more members to respond.

  Thanks for letting me vent some of my feelings .       Steve

I think making it an annual trip and moving it around would be the best idea. I live right here in central Ny and donw mind driving 1-2 hr's for a trip.
A good day fishing inst complete unless it's spent with family or friends.

The idea of multiple gatherings on the same day can be an option in the poll. It would make things easier but we would need volunteers to over see each gathering. I'm assuming Pooley is willing to take that task for Southeast,NY. since he is trying to get a gathering of Southeast area members together.
   Also maybe we could have a picnic for state members in the spring-summer when traveling conditions should be better.
