Okay... I need to get on this! Holey moley it's Mid-March!

As Mark pointed out in his Circle City Talk announcement, we're meeting at
Tippecanoe River State Park, 4200 N. U.S. 35, Winamac, IN

The weekend is definately April 30, May 1-2. I will be there all three
days. My wife and I are planning on leaving Thrusday night and getting a
room somewhere along the way, so we get a couple hours of the drive out of
the way. Then we'll have Thrusday to do some scouting, be there to greet
the early comers on Friday etc.

You will have a chance to see a lot of really imperilled fish. The
Tippecanoe is the midwestern "Dream Stream" with nearly all of it's
historical icthyfauna intact. (Those poor harelip suckers <sigh>) "Camera
Collecting" will be all that we'll do with the listed species, but there's a
HOST of other species fully open to bring home for your aquaristic

Do we think we'll have enough people to warrant getting ahold of the park
office to reserve group camping? I'm not sure that we'd have enough, or
what their minimum is... I don't think the Crails or the Zarlingas will be
in the group area, because we'll have our dogs and will need to camp in the
pet area. So if it's that informal, we can all just get our sites and the
decide where NANFA Central Headquarters will be :)

Anything else that I'm not thinking about?

Sarah found little Quart sized "Critter Keepers" at the dollar store the
other day. I'm going to pick up a gob of them so we can all have "viewers"
as we go along. They're vahry nice-ah! :)

If you have any questions, ideas, suggestions, whatever... Please feel free
to contact me!

It's never too late to have a happy childhood.
