I am hopefull that the Ozark Gathering will stimulate some interest amoung
local people .Getting good native fishes media PR form the Gathering is a
major concern with me . If some of those coming to the Gathering would be
willing to tolerate some media presence at two collecting
lacations --Yellville City park and Harrison City Park -- I am fairly sure
of some media interest .Both locations are County seats and they are home to
2 county
newspapers . Both locations are good collecting sites . Both locations are
on the same(somewhat famous) Crooked Creek . If a small part of the
Gathering time is
directed at gaining publicity it may enable recruitment of new members and
specificaly people willing to help with an Ozark Convention . Doing a
National Convention without any local help would be a bit much . If I can
find an intersted and able person or two localy I would be delighted to
see an Ozark National .
