Good friend of mine is a cop in Spencer. He said hes never seen anyone shut off so much of the fairground to get ready for an event, even the “worlds largest county fair”. Makes me wonder if i can walk this thing in a long day?

Headed that way in a couple hours. I'm tired of watching the corn and beans wilt during the day here. I hope it's a little cooler there than it is here.

Heading that way early AM tomorrow and staying through Friday. I plan for two long days there but will see how long the 6 year old can last.

Picking up my neighbor and heading out early tomorrow morning as well. Really looking forward to this meet. Anyone know if there will be any vendors there selling xl live traps? Seems with this drought our raccoons have gotten super strong and nasty and not afraid to take it out on my cheap traps. Safe travels everyone!

It's a nice course. Greens are three times faster than I'm used too.

For those looking to stock up on cheap trilene and fireline and usually a lot of other deals, Fishermans outlet is 20 minutes north in Spirit Lake. I go once a year and usually spend more than i mean to. I justify it by telling myself how much money im losing by NOT spending the money.

Also, is there a map anywhere of where the vendors are at?
