Sorry to hear you will not make it Rex but congratulations to you and Cathy on the home closing. Always priorities.

My original plan was to make a weekend out of it (friends, hotel, racetrack, etc) and my work and my wife's has stopped that (I've had to travel to Texas for work and my wife cannot get time off friday). I hope to be back in time to do the one day trip...we'll see.


Well I hope you can make it QA but if not stop by some other time. 69 hwy goes straight to Texas from here so just make a detour to or from work!

Canyon, that countdown needs background music! Perhaps Europe's "final countdown?"

Here is the latest image on Google Earth. The address is 8042 KS-171, Pittsburg, KS.

The pond being built is the RES/SMB pond that is completed and has fish in it. The dozer in the picture would be me working at the time.

I just noticed there is something really weird about the image. It must be two different times merged. Notice on the upper part of the picture the fields are in wheat (very green fields) but in the lower part it shows bare ground I assume as it was prepared to plant wheat. That would have been something like a month apart or more. Very weird!

For anyone interested here are some threads pertaining to the individual ponds listed in the post above. The threads are long and I do not expect anyone to slug through all of them, but if anyone has questions these threads cover the individual ponds.

Thread on main pond and old refurbished pond

Forage pond

Sediment pond

RES/SMB pond

My name is Heath Lawrence, you met me and my father whenever you and Bob Lusk came over to my strip pit, which is about 10 miles north of your place. I seen a reminder from Bob Lusk about your party and was going to let you know that me and my dad plan to come. I'm very excited to see your ponds and be around other pondmiesters!

Fantastic! My wife had just ask me the other day if you were coming and I told her I had no idea. I could not remember your name (but I did remember you when we met again at the farm store in Lamar) and I am so glad Bob thought to invite you.

My powers of observation and remembering names is highly lacking. I'll try to do better at that Heath (I have a grandson named Heath, should be able to remember it).

So glad you are coming. And just this morning the weather forecast looks to be a lot better than it was. They have moved the rain chances to Friday and away from Saturday. Yes!!!!!

Due to some event going on in Pittsburg the motel situation is not good. High prices because of the event. So I do not expect anyone to be staying in Pittsburg (I think Bob Lusk was going to stay in Baxter Springs and Bing maybe in Joplin). But just in case anyone is around I will still be having dinner at Chicken Annie's Annex south of Pittsburg at 6pm Friday night. So if anyone happens to be in town or close and wants to join me, send me a PM or just meet me there. I'll be wearing a Pond Boss cap.

Snrub: I am very sorry but we will not be able to attend. A very good musician friend who was performing in Branson had a gall bladder attack and it had to be removed by surgery rather than the lapro method. We are staying behind to help Jimmy and his wife, good luck with your meeting. It looks like the weather gods are favoring you.

It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Really sorry to hear that Bing but helping friends in need are important. You know where I am at now should you want to stop by sometime.

Me too Dave. I know the GSF are disappointed. grin

It was a very nice gathering. Thanks much to snrub and his family for all the preparation. The weather was clear and pleasant. The food was fantastic! He has the best manicured ponds I have seen.

You are welcome.

I enjoyed it very much. I think everyone appreciated Bob Lusk being there and answering all the questions ask.

I will try and get some of the pictures together in the next couple days and post them.

snrub, I am sorry I missed your pond party. I tried to get there but to much going on right now. I would have liked to tell you personally that I have enjoyed your posts here at the forum over the past 4 yrs.

John,

I would have liked to have come. So happy to hear the weather was great and all had a great time. I'm looking forward to the photos documenting the event.
