Saturday early evening a Fried Fish Dinner for $10 is sponsored by the NW chapter of the ACC (prior to the general business meeting).

Enjoy fried catfish, chicken tenders, coleslaw, beans, and hushpuppies after your day on the water!  

This year we will move the Fish Fry to the east (gazebo) side of Turner Bend to allow a better venue for live music from the group Cross Creek from about 4:45 PM to 6:45 PM.  Bring your camp chair and your favorite beverage, grab a plate of catfish and enjoy some good bluegrass.

Saturday at 7:00 PM the Arkansas Canoe Club's General Business Meeting and election of officers will be held at the gazebo. This meeting is open to everyone and you are encouraged to attend!

Evening activities include time to visit new and old friends around what is usually an Epic "Bonfire" near the

 center of the Turner Bend campground. 

Also the "Three Daves" (Robertson, Lewis and Loving) will be Pickin and Grinning this year on the north end of the main campground near where the Central Chapter typically sets up shop. Bring your camp chair and enjoy.  Other pickers, and grinners are encouraged to join in!

Sunday morning, from 6:30 to 8:00 AM, the River Valley chapter of the ACC will provide a pancake breakfast at the Gazebo for $7. Pancakes, sausage, orange juice and fresh coffee will prep you for your second day on the water!

The remainder of Sunday is spent with further instruction, with the school ending by 5:00 PM.
