Hi everyone! Past president Steve Adkins attended OTSP 2023 and he met up with the wonderful Stan Davis to retell the story of how Okie-Tex & Camp Billy Joe came to be.
Check out this quick video about how Steve and co scouted and discovered the site that is still in use today.
Yes, I remember that first Camp Billy Joe star party. I attended the Okie-Tex the year before at the Prude Ranch. When I went to the TSP following, there was a couple of people near the TSP registration desk saying that the next Okie-Tex was going to be in my neighborhood. I said “Oh?” They said that it is at the tip of the panhandle. Later I got the brochure with registration in the mail. When I saw some pictures of the mesas and then I read the meals menu. Okay I’m a-coming! I’ve been attending all since the soakie-Tex at the Prude Ranch. I’ve been volunteering to doing the venue setup as well at least the past decade.
