I would like to go. If you all pick a date out early enough then I can get the time off from work, if I let them know ahead of time.

The earlier we start, the better. Sausage making takes some time. I would say we need to start by 9AM or so. When we did this earlier this spring at Papa Tom's house, we started around 10AM if I remember correctly and there were still a few of us there at 10PM. The earlier we start, the more we will get done.

The closest hotels to Pottsboro are going to be in Sherman, but you can get some really cheap deals on them through Hotwire. Sherman has La Quinta, Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn Express and I have seen where you can get them on Hotwire for about $50/night. They are about 10 minutes away from the property.

It sounds like we have some good interest in this get-together. I'd like to get a date nailed down ASAP so everybody can start making plans.

No date yet - I was hoping that a few more of the people who showed interest would weigh in on a date that would work for them and then I would pick something that works for most. Let's give it another few days and see if we can get some more input and then I will make a decision.

Come on folks! Let's hear what will work best for you. I really want to make this happen!

Again, here are the dates I proposed...

Saturday's
January 22nd
February 5th (Superbowl Weekend)
February 19th
