The weather probably kept people from attending tonight. Only myself George Craig and Pearl Schneider attended. After 20 minutes we left for home.

Event Calendar / Additional Work Party for Hoppes

At the last meeting we discussed another day to help the Hoppes with more firewood. If you can lend a hand that would be great.
Here's a link Chuck did for the last one.

Note: you're looking for a camouflaged gate entrance, not very wide and very bumpy at the entrance. Ignore the warnings, they know we're coming.

Work Project Requests / Work Party for Thom -- Monday, Dec 3rd, 2018
« on: November 29, 2018, 08:02:03 PM »
I need some help cutting down and splitting firewood on Monday December 3rd. I've already talked to several individuals who will come to help. Tom Kennedy will bring his splitter and saws, and Roy and John on said they would help too.

Primarily need workers, chain saws and a couple of trucks. Location is my place.

We'll get started around 9AM.
1) Turn onto road HH off from hwy 160  just west of Isabella post office.
2) Turn left onto CR-620, also marked on right side of HH as lake road HH-8. This road is on left of a sharp right hand curve of HH.
     If you get to Shockey's Boats & Motors on the next curve to the left you've gone too far. In that case come back and turn right onto CR-620.
3) Look for black mailbox on right, marked "32 Birch Lane". Turn into my driveway there.

See you at the Hoppes on Saturday, Dec 1st, or at the December meeting.


Here are the audio minutes for the O.N.E. meeting on November 9th.
There wasn't a quorum present, nor a speaker. We decided to leave at 7PM if nobody else showed up, our thinking was the meeting time wasn't updated to say 6PM due to time change, although it was stated at October meeting that winter hours would start in November for next  meeting.

We passed the mic as usual, so here is the recording. Enjoy!

Well I tried to get there, but unfortunately the directions had too few clues for me to find the place, despite wandering around for half hour looking. It's very raw out there, with multiple curves and turns and too few things to cite as landmarks.

This is offered for future activities to the Hoppes property, that others will be prepared with enough info to find it.

I have been down into Arkansas on hwy P more than three times, to "Ron and Patties Place". There is a sign post pointing to their place at an intersection at the bottom of one hill, quite a ways past the AR/MO border. I went to the top of that hill and the first place on the left was "600 Nature Way", with an open camouflaged, green gate and a very rough road beyond the gate. I didn't go in too far before deciding it wasn't the Hoppes place (if it was I had no way to know, and the road was very rough).

There was another right hand turn at the bottom of a hill closer than the above. The first left side driveway at the top of that hill opened into a very large field. Towards the left quite a ways away from the road was a barn and a house which has been under construction for quite awhie, based on the wood weathering I saw. Way across the field, which is to the right from entrance, is another set of buildings, but I didn't go there b/c it seemed too newish to be Hoppes place.

Here are the audio minutes for the O.N.E. meeting on October 11th.
