    Hey guys.

    With the current rain situation around Sumner and Brunswick, our normal spot may not be huntable for the youth weekend. I hate to have to do it, but we will likely need to head to Fountain Grove or Grand Pass. We are very familiar with both places, but have never been there for the youth opener. Do they have a draw or is it 1st come 1st serve? I looked through the MDC site, but didn't find the info I was looking for.

    Thanks in advance for the info.

    I think they draw at Pass, they have in the past! It all depends on how much water they have

    Maybe by next weekend things will be settled down. The Grand River is out as I understand it and that could significantly impact the Fountain Grove area, right?

    I did finally get a hold of a live person at Pass and confirmed they do a drawing. Tried calling Fountain several times but nobody ever answers the phone there. I left a message from somebody but have not gotten a call back. Maybe with this flood they won't be open for youth. Guess we will see what happens. Thanks for the feedback so far.

    I doubt if they can get to the headquarters and more than likely the buildings are flooded. A 37’ flood is a major event and will be above flood stage thru early next week.

    Saw a picture this morning and the HQ at the Grove is flooded. It'll be a little bit before they can get back in there
