Hi everyone,
I've been getting several requests and inquiries about our annual KFF day at Yale. I'm so proud to have started this tradition and feel it is one thing that sets our group of members apart from other web sites and forums. As for this year's event... I'm trying to find a weekend/day that may work.

As some of you know I have been working at earning my credentials to become a school administrator/principal while also updating my counseling certification. Thankfully both of those programs finished on Monday, May 6, and now in the midst of searching for a promotion I have about two months before we welcome our third child to the family.

To help with the potential of a gathering, who is interested? How much advance planning time would you need? (We may end up with a "hey let's meet next Saturday at".......situation.

-Mack

As long as there are no prior commitments on the day that is picked we will be there. I don't have a whole lot of free time but I will do what I can to help just let me know. I know of 3 other "fishing" conflicts..... Kokanee Power Oregon derbies June 8-9, July 13-14, August 17-18.

I hope more people will jump on the band wagon. A good time was had by all last year. What does it take to get more families involved ? Mack- If you need something, let me know.

Hey Mack......Just a thought, with every one's schedule seeming "extra crazy", to take a little pressure off you should we fight amongst our self's to try to come up with a date? Don't get me wrong, I think having you organize it is the best choice (your pretty good at it thumbsup), but with a new little one on the way for you, I'm sure we could fumble our way threw it.

I have wanted to make this event ever since it started but there has always been some type of conflict. If the day fits.......we will be there.

I'll check the calendar for the 22nd. I know that the 15th is a no-go for me.

Mudinchev
05-28-2013, 03:48 PM
22nd would work for me as well.

BonkinKokes

Is it the 22nd of June?

MackPrince

Updated from my end. Good news... I got a job as a assistant principal and don't have to move. Bad news... The weekend of the 22nd I' headed out of town now for a three day conference. I hope you are still able to get together, and I've been in contact with a few Koke connections about our 2014 gathering already.

Anyone Willing to step up to help this happen? Looks like we have enough people interested to do it.As for myself. I'll be at the lake on that date if it happens or not.
Most of the work is done. People know the date. I hate for this to go the same way as the incorporation. It ended with a wimper about a year ago. ( Washington Kokanee Power )

I was wandering if a weekend in July would work better for everyone since this is looking like some of the people aren't gonna be able to make it. It would be nice if everyone could participate.

BonkinKokes
06-18-2013, 05:13 PM
I'd like this to happen. Yes I'd be there for sure if we're home that weekend. The end of the month is open for me.

Mudinchev
06-18-2013, 08:00 PM
The only open weekend in July would be the 20th for me.....The problem I see brewing here is you/we will never come up with a date that will work for every one, some one just needs to take the reigns and say XX/XX this is when it is be there if you can.

Mudinchev

Glad to see that people still are thinking about getting together. My year this year has been super busy doing all kinds of things that have kept me from fishing for Kokanee.:mad: I'm not sure what I'll be doing in August, but the 10th or 17th sounds good. If we set a date soon, I'll have a better chance of not making plans for that weekend. I would like to see everyone again, and swap some storiesthumbsup

I'll bring some smoked kokanee dip and chips. Now to figure out how to catch those tasty silver rockets.

Mudinchev
08-06-2013, 11:29 PM
How about a FINAL head count?? Are we only looking at 2 or 3 boats?

Mudinchev
08-07-2013, 12:09 AM
Unless there are a lot of other people planning going that haven't posted, I have a suggestion, move it to Merwin, its a little closer for most and the fish are 4 times the size. And also there is a pretty good chance of tying into one of those huge trout. If turns out that a bunch of people are planning on making it we should probably leave the plan the same, I was just thinking 2-4 boats is a pretty small group, why not go after better fish and if we still wanted to meet up for lunch we don't need a lot of room. Yale has more room for larger groups of people but I would think we could find some restate to accommodate a small group on Merwin.

Are we on or not for the picnic?

[QUOTE=BonkinKokes;47755]Are we on or not for the picnic?[/QUOTE

Since only 2 people have signed up , I think I'll fish Merwin.

Kokonut:
Glad to see you have made it back. Hope the knee operation is a total success. I am a big maybe at Merwin for Saturday. I was up there yesterday in the morning, but it was extremely slow. Had 8 on and only got 5 in the net with no big rainbows. I will have to see if there is anything on the calender. It might work out.

We can keep it at Yale if that's what every one wants to do it is just a suggestion, my preference is Merwin for obvious reasons but I don't mind fishing Yale, either way we can still do a picnic afterwords, it looks like it will be a pretty small group. We just need to make a firm plan and run with it, I will follow the crowd thumbsup

I'll be there on the 8th, 9th, and 10th. If I don't have cell phone reception, I guess I won't know where to be on Sat. the 10th. My wife is making Brownies.
Richard, I'll try to reach you on the phone. This year I'm using a pickup camper.

Mudinchev
08-08-2013, 10:24 AM
Weird my post last night didn't make it.....I don't care either way which lake we are on........Richard(Kokonuts) its your call you call it. That way we can at least have the few that are going to be here all together.

I'm headed to Yale. Fished Green Peter and Merwin this week. Time for some new water. I'll be in my blue Willie sled. See you Saturday.

Mudinchev

I just talked to Richard, he is not feeling well enough to make it so we will see everyone at Yale park around 11 as originally planned, We have a green Pro Sport (Duckworth) with a Gray top, as far a lunch goes I guess that's kind of up in the air as well It looks like there are only going to be 3 boats so maybe its just best if we all bring a lunch.

BonkinKokes
08-09-2013, 09:57 AM
Roger that. See you for lunch around 11.
