I like labor day weekend. I will be real honest.....i don't wheel October 1 to Jan 1....those three months if i'm not working I'm hunting.
Later in September would be fine....but if it gets into October i am really likely to be out.
As for "more of an event".....i see no need.....too much structure leads to less fun imo.
You came to SETO4 at Tellico in October. What gives?
Or did you?
