I’m putting those dates on my calendar - if I don’t get drawn for deer or elk in October, we’ll be seeing y’all!

FWIW, I vote for Canton. That’s very close to family in Tyler.

That’s such a long time away. Can we consider March/April 2014 for nice weather instead of October?

Here is a working link for the Millcreek resort:

Looks great! Might help if we can get a map of gun range we will be using for reference while we are planning where to stay. I am not certain where it is located. We all seem to love the cabin concept though, so loving the idea of that for sure!! Ready for a recon trip...lol!!

The Range will likely not be in good condition at that time of year.

Thanks! Cedar Hill area we should definitely look into too. Very nice hills and countryside down that way. When I get some time tonight, I will help you look.

Yes, I am very prim and proper. Gunner and Laz will vouch for me.

Actually, I think I did unintentionally shock JimRob when I said I felt like I'd been rode hard and put away wet. I thought he was gonna spit out his water.

We might have to rent golf carts or get a waiver from Mill Creek. This is sort of weird.
Please Note: Our cottage area is built with the serenity of our owners in mind. Therefore there are no automobiles allowed in the cottage area. A complimentary concierge service is available to escort you with your luggage to the cottages and back to your vehicle or to the features of the resort. Golf Carts are also available for daily rental based on avaiability and can be reserved at the Grand Lodge.

Yup. First time I heard that was by my brother-in-law who was a genuine pack-train cowboy. Hearing it from a prim and proper young lady was enough to make one shoot cola all over his screen. LOL

If it works out anything like this last one, neither will the shooters be in too good of shape.

“prim and proper young lady”

No one who saw me drive my truck over a fence, bird bath, and steel ramps would ever believe such a thang. ;p

I have friends in the are that maybe able to steer us to places that are more “let yer hair down friendly”

I may even be able to arrange some horseback riding, but being rode hard and put away wet is prolly a no no.

Odd that you mention that. They just updated their website:

Please Note: Our cottage area is built with the serenity of our owners in mind. Therefore there are no automobiles or drunken FReepers allowed in the cottage area. A complimentary concierge service is available to escort you with your luggage and arsenal to the cottages and back to your vehicle or to the features of the resort. Golf Carts are also available for daily rental based on avaiability and can be reserved at the Grand Lodge, but not by drunken FReepers or for transporting arsenals.

The Lake Whitney Marina looks promising.

They have 16 rentals available of various capacities and configurations.(some are floating)

Pets are welcome...$25 for small ones & $50 for large ones.

They have a 12’ x 60’ (converted trailer) club house with a deck. (sounds very red-neck, I like it!) Free to us if we book all the rentals.

The reservations policy is they only charge the first night on your CC. Rates are ~$20 less than summer rates.

Gary is the contact person if y'all have any ?’s (254) 694-3129

My only question would be if 16 cabins were enough...??? Looks great otherwise.

We can squeeze at least 50 folks in the club house!

The Lake Whitney Marina looks promising.

The place looks great, BUT it is almost 90 miles from the range. That is a lot of driving for one day.

Point well taken.

The tough part is that as our group grows, accomadations narrow.

We may have te segment our group for a closer location.

Ceder Creek Lake is a lot closer...but have yet to find the capacity we need.

BT & Pen...would y'all please make some calls to gather info? If we can group a bunch of rentals in close proximity to each other..we could pull this off!

Houses for rent

Captains Quarters

BRIDGET'S TRIPLE"B" COTTAGES
