    As this time last year there were discussions about no rooms, can't find a room, got a room, had a room and lost it, darn ragheads, where to stay, etc, etc, glad everthing is going better this year.

    Price of gas being what it is, not going this year. If we all cut back it would make a difference, but most of us won't.

    With the cost of gas and traveling, not to mention shells, room rates, and having to eat out every day and or evening there might be a lot of people who will be cutting back not only this year but for many years well into the future ... The shell prices are on tap for another increase, and when you add it all up sometimes you have to wonder if its alls worth it ... It will be interesting to see the total numbers when its all said and done to see just how much of an impact all of the pricing increases has on the shoots in the future ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Good point, devil. Those who don't want to go will always find plenty of excuses not to go. It's just human nature to try to rationalize decisions.

    Dick's is selling gun clubs this week for 4.28. Buy 12 boxes and use the coupon from the Illinois fishing booklet.

    Final cost is about 3.45 a box.

    I have the opposite problem when it comes to excuses, I usually have to find an excuse to go to something rather than an excuse not to ... I have the money, time, the wife says do what ever I want, but I just don't have the desire ... I cannot muster a good or bad excuse or reason to go and can see several reasons not to so I once again have to go with my gut feeling and find something that I have more desire to do that week ... The friends that I would see by going to the Grand will probably be out in the southwest for the winter chain and I won't have to bother traveling all that way when I just do not have the desire ...
