October 15 - 17, 2015 - Temple, Texas

  Saturday October  17, 2014 from 8:00AM – 2:00PM @ KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS HALL
Host: Chip Rice         817-295-7750   
  Colby Sorrells   817-473-6748          texasbassbugger
  HOTEL & Reservations: 254-742-1122

This year is a little different. Due to the uncertainty of the sale of the SPJST IN Burleson, Colby and I went ahead and set up the meet for Temple during the Temple meet in April. Temple is fairly central to DFW, Houston, and Austin/San Antonio so you have no excuse not to come.  We will try and be back at the SPJST or whatever it is now in Burleson in 2016.

Directions to Hotel:  From the north it looks like the exit for Hwy. 53 and 2305/ Adams and Central Ave. will drop you off I35 right at the Texas Roadhouse and Temple Best Western. From the south (Austin/San Antonio), exit on Nugent, and cross the overpass back over I35 and come back south on the access road to the Best Western. Mention the NFLCC for the $74.99 standard or $79.99 suite price per night.
Directions to Knights of Columbus: Most of you know where the K of C is on 2218 W. Ave. D. which is on your right with the golf course and lake visible to the west of its parking lot. The easy road to it is probably still torn up, so directions will be given out at the hotel and we will put up signs. We will try and get there at 7:00 am and go until 2:00 pm or when everyone leaves. The public will be allowed in as it would be nice to get NEW MEMBERS into the NFLCC. Bring a friend interested in old tackle and get them to join!!!! We will use the same auctioneer and hope something good comes in. We try and auction off only Public or member estate tackle (which there is already some lined up to auction). They have a snack bar @ the K of C Hall.  Call me or Co-Host Sorrells.
