    River Ranch 13 April 24 - 27 - 2014

    Well it's official these are the dates and are locked in . This is a fun weekend with lots to do if you choose , Boating , Rodeo , Country Saloon, Horseback riding or just chilling out by the pool . There are many lakes to ride through with Lake Kissimmee being the largest . I will provide a link to a map of the Kisimmee Chain of Lakes that will help in navigating the area . This is a really centrally located spot for those located all around the state to attend . located on Rt 60 20 miles East of Lake Wales and 20 miles West of the FL Turnpike junction at Yeehaw Junction .

    All FL boating operation and Safety Equipment requirements apply and it is customary for FWC to visit this group so have all your equipment together , wear your Life Vests and operate wisely !!

    Camp Macks River Resort also has lodging and a boat ramp .

    An additional comment regarding golf carts and general behavior using them . Last April there were some really abusive and careless drivers operating carts around other people and a cart was also left stuck in a pond . This is just crazy and after being spoken to by the management at the Ranch it must be stopped or our group will not be welcome there . Just because you put down a security deposit does not mean you can trash this privately owned equipment . I personally witnessed a young lady almost get crushed between two carts due to careless operation . If you can't conduct yourself in a basically controlled manner ..don't bother coming to this event . If it happens again it will certainly be the last one I have anything to do with .

    I look forward to seeing everyone there and should anyone need to get a hold of me (727)-457 - 8253

    I will be there not sure if i will be staying over night as i am only alittle over a hour away, Might just drive over for the day and run back home. I agree tom things have been out of control there for the past few yrs and as a group of grown men and woman we should care about other peoples belongings and property more than i have seen in the past, this group has to realize that where we go and the things we do at these places directly reflect on our group, just like cheifland tearing up the place and disturbing other guests how long do we think they will allow this, we are adults and should act like it, I know if i owned the place and i allowed a group to come there and they tore my stuff up it would be the last time they where permitted there, we need to hold a much higher standard than we have in the past and treat peoples property as it was our own, I know if we all tore up your property you would end it rt then, And they should to.

    I just made my reservation and brought up the Trip Insurance deal . It was explained that they have to offer it at time of reservation because some guests in the past (not us ) have complained that it was not offered . Go figure . All went smooth otherwise .
