cool thing - this year it doesn't overlap with the GRTU October meeting, which is on the 28th.
Our by-laws stipulate the 4th Saturday of the month.

I spoke to them last year and asked that they do their best to schedule it on a date when our folks could attend.

Of course, that's Parent's Weekend at my freshman's university.

Oh, well.

We will be in the truck camper at LLano River Rv, usually at spot number 3 . We go up there 2-3 times a year to fish the LLano/james Rivers.
Hope to see everyone up there , come by for a beer. THE BAR WILL BE OPEN . LOL Don

as judged by the pictures, this looks like a float trip. Si or no?
Heck, if nothing else, it'd be a heckova fun outing if you didn't even fish. We sold our big boat and bought a new Harley Sportster, may just scoot up and see. Look for us,Don.

Lockjaw, I am sorry to say I will have to delay my trip to the Llano by a week. I'll sneak down there on the 28th to see if y'all left any fish that aren't shaking in their scales ;-)
Gonna stay at Raye Carrington's place. I am so overdue for a little hill country!

Look out Coopers, here we come!

Shoot.....October 22 is the Rolling Stones Concert in Austin.....Maybe I can make the first few days! I haven't fished up there in a long time, but it was fun the times I did wet a line! Jimbo

Don't worry Jimbo, you will probably still be able to hear the music all the way to Mason...;-)

Yeap, I've been busy and missed a weekend of fishing on the Llano, but let me tell you, the Stones concert was fabulous. They filmed it for a DVD release and everyone will get to see the elaborate stage and sound system they had. The stage was said to be "9 Stories Tall" and I don't doubt it. They had 5 screens set up around the stage and the one in the center was about 60'X60'. The fireworks, flamethrowers, screens and changing lighting including a curtain of lights that draped over the entire stage was..... well....."Incredible" and easily lived up to the tour's name "A Bigger Bang"! The Stones played for over 2 hours and that was after Ian from the old "Faces" band and Los Lonely Boys both played for about an hour and a half. It was great! Jimbo

The report immediately above this post was provided at no charge to GRTU by Jimbo Roberts, our chapter's oldest teenager. Rock on, Jimbo!

My realtor's a teenager? dang

Any of this crowd heading up for it this year? Saw some chatter on TKF about folks already reserving campsites.
I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer, and I practice moderation in moderation.

BigCliff,

We'll be vacationing in NM the last week in September. If finances allow, we'll try to make it to Oktoberfisch.

My wife and I attended last year and we had a good time. We fished some and my wife took part in on some of casting lessons. Shuttles were provided, so if you had a kayak, you could shuttle up river and float back to the camp ground.

I'm going to try and make it this year. I've been meaning to make this event for years and never made it down because the GRTU Meetings and well the Rolling Stones last year. This year everything looks like I can make it especially with the Guadalupe as low an hot as it is. Time to get the Kayak wet and do a little Bass fishing.
