We are going to meet at the gatehouse around 7:00 a.m. and take off from there. Bring a friend and let·s have a great day of fellowship and outdoor fun. The deer have been on the move, the fish have been biting, and I even heard a coon dog barking treed this week. Now that·s the Ozarks at its· best. Mark November 6th on your calendar also, because, we are going to eat high on the hog. Saturday night at 5:00 p.m. we will have a night of good food and fellowship.
