You can't judge the rest California by L.A.It's beautiful once you get out of the city.We have some of the most beautiful coastlines,high deserts,mountains,and forests.I don't know exactly where TJ lives,but i've been to the Central Valley and that's some pretty country up there.The lakes actually have real rivers flowing into them,instead of concrete canals like we have in L.A.!

We run a trip every yr on BassResource also. I can give a bit of input about locations from our experiences for you guys.
-Central for everyone, whether you are coming from Cali or New England
-16'/40hp Aluminum rentals
-Covered boat docks w/ electricity!!!
-1.5 hrs from DFW airport (Not bad)
- Specoal note- Fishermans cove Marina was VERY accomodating for us. We had assigned meals. Guys offered to cook their specialty meal, you could volunteer for a night. We had meatballs from Brooklyn one night, Chili and Hoagies from Tenn another night , Jumbalaya from N'Orlean's another. Dan and Linda from the cove, not only let us use the kitchen and grills (It's also the main hot spot on the lake,....the only bar!!) but they gave us the whole top floor for dining. awesome folks.
-"Nicer" yet more expensive accomodations but you can always camp in the park too so it can get as "Low Budget" as you need
-Not as accomodating as Fork, meaning, more of a cusiness feel where Fork was a family feel.
-NO BOAT RENTALS!!! Team up boys, pain in the ass
-Definitely a more expensive trip. Almost double and that's w/o a boat rental
-1.5 hrs from airport (not bad)
-This is where we are going this yr so not much to report yet although it seems to be coming together nicely
-Lots of places to stay and eat
-City nearby in case anyone wants to bring family and will need other stuff to do.
-close to airport

I like the choices, but I won't vote till I see Lake Falcon, TX on the ballot. It is on the Rio Grande River in southern TX. The Bass Masters Elite Series fished there one time, & it broke almost every positive record, including heaviest 4 day total of around 135 lbs. About 135 lbs. man! Now that's amazing! If anyone hasen't fished Lake Falcon yet, I strongly recommend you tell people to fish it. When they do, they will wish they took their votes back. It is in Zapata, TX. Tell people about it.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys, but the West Coast Gathering was dreamed up to allow folks that could not make it to the MO Meet to get together out west. However it kind of withered on the vine for now. Maybe we can have better luck this year.
