Branson is my old stomping grounds; born and raised in southern Missouri and attended college at School of the Ozarks in Point Lookout, MO (Branson suburb). Don't look like I'll have vacation to attend but would love to do it. Excellent entertainment, Silver Dollar City, Museum on the now College of the Ozarks campus and Table Rock lake. Not to mention Springfield, MO, home of Bass Pro Shops, a short drive North. Trout fishing, golf yada, yada, yada. Extremely envious of all that will be attending.
