Southeastern Spudders

Unread postAuthor: McCoytheGreater » Sat Dec 26, 2009 3:39 pm

Instead of digging up an old thread, I figured I'd create a new one.

ATTN: All interested in Spudding who reside around Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, and the Western Florida panhandle, but if you can make the trip from elsewhere, come on down! We have a large plot of land with plenty of room for potato flinging.

I would like to get something together right around the beginning of Summer 2010 to give people plenty of time to make cannons, implement new designs, and figure out a way to get here. It will be held in Southeastern Mississippi an hour north of I-10 (specifics to come if there is interest). Lodging can be arranged.

The dates and times will come later if there is interest shown.

I don't want to give specific addresses until I know how many people can/will come. Google Lucedale, MS. we're within 30 minutes of there.

So I may have come across a more centrailzed location to have a spud-fest. It will be much more convenient for those who live in northwest AL, West TN, East AR, and Northeast LA. It is located in Grenada, MS off of I-55 with a couple of choices for lodging. It will hopefully happen right around the beginning/middle of summer if there is interest.

DRIVE TIMES:

Atlanta, GA-- 6 Hrs 45 mins.

St. Louis, MO-- 6 Hrs.

Nashville, TN-- 5 Hrs.

New Orleans, LA-- 4 Hrs. 45 mins.

Birmingham, AL-- 4 Hrs.

Little Rock, AR-- 4 Hrs.

Jackson, MS-- 2 Hrs.

I hope these times help some of you make your road tripping decision.

*bump*

I live a short day's drive from that location, and could possibly go, depending on when this meet is to take place.

I know you said early/mid summer, but it seems interest has waned. Any updated ideas on the date?
