    TX>Fairfield Lake State Park>November 9-11, 2012 - 2012 Texas Fall Group Hang ver 4.0

    It’s hot. In November it’s not…

    Let's get a Fall Group Hang planned!

    So, let the tradition continue in 2012 with the 4th Annual Texas Fall Group Hang the second weekend in November, (11/9-11) at Fairfield Lake State Park. It’s a great time to renew friendships, make new ones, and play with gear so mark it on the calendar.

    In the past, the fun has included car camping for those who like to bring everything; (the location has showers and porcelain facilities for those who won’t leave home without them); day hikes for those inclined; lake paddling, fishing; pot luck dinners; Dutch oven cooking; DIY play time; lots of show and tell along with a little gear trading; group buys; stove tests; drawings for prizes, and some wonderful campfire fellowship.

    For now, save the date and post your ideas, comments, and suggestions. Inspired by other event planners, here is my first google docs attempt; a participant list to track interest and ideas. By posting to it we can keep a running list of folks and stuff past the date that this post can be edited. Please add or update yourself on it.

    Last year’s planning thread for those interested in what’s been done before. And here’s the 2011 Trip report and a bit more here.



    Can’t make it in November and wonder what to do within a day’s drive for TX, Ok, La, Ark folks, here’s some past hangs and a few to come…

    Caddo Lake – January
    Kiamichi River, OK – February
    Brazos Bend – March and here.
    Arkansas Ozark – March
    Cedar Lake, Ok – May
    Lake of the Arbuckles, Davis Ok – June
    DFW – Wise County Park – July
    Texas LST – August
    Louisiana – October

    What's the chance of this date changing... I'm going to put in for time off... And want to make sure I don't have to change it...

    I'm marking this one down on the calendar -- and putting in for a couple of days off. Looking forward to this -- it'll be my first group gathering. Should be cool!

    Since death and taxes are the only thing certain I don't want to make an absolute claim, however, the 2nd weekend in November has been our date for the past 3 years and I have no reason to anticipate a change this year.
