Wall Doxey Rumble in the Jungle - Sept. 22 & 23

Wall Doxey Rumble in the Jungle - Sept. 22 & 23
June 04, 2012 10:14AM
I know its 4 months away but one thing requires some early planning. The best deal on staying at the park is the campsites. They are $18 a night with a concrete pad, picnic table, grille, water and electricity. Two tents are allowed per site and with two people per tent that is a total of $9 a person for two nights. I would like to encourage everyone to make their campsite reservations early selecting from sites 21 through 32 which are all on the same road. Last year we had all but a couple of these sites booked with tournament players and it was like a big street party.

The park number is 662-252-4231. Park Manager Jeff Davis said that they are having a great year with reservations on cabins, sites and bunkhouses so please go ahead and book a site if you plan to attend. I will be on site 28 for registration Friday afternoon & evening.

I am excited about the fact that the Mississippi Dept. of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks has given me permission to use their 6 color logo for the am player pack tournament discs. These will look fabulous. Last year we had 82 players. This year I would like to break 100.

More information to follow.
