Butch’s Camp, Empire, LA – Saturday, September 16, 2017

Directions to Butch’s camp for check-in and captains dinner on Friday night: 
I-10 to NOLA. Take Hwy 90 (Westbank Expressway at the Superdome) to Gretna. Exit 7 on Lafayette Street Exit. This is The Belle Chase Hwy (Hwy 23). (Note: If you know how to exit on General DeGaulle like you are going to English Turn Golf Course, do it. You will miss Gretna/BelleChase traffic. When you get to the bottom of the bridge on the Woodland Highway, take the traffic circle to the left. English Turn is to the right. Woodland Hwy will take you to Hwy 23 in BelleChase. Take a left on Hwy 23). Our camp is where mile marker 22 would be if it were not missing. Mile marker 23 is there. We are on the right. 111 Last Cast Lane. There is a red reflector by the “street” sign (gravel driveway). If you get to the bridge in Empire, turn around. We are now on the left a mile back. 
Butch’s neighbor’s address is 31918 Hwy 23, Empire, LA, 70041. It works in Google. Butch’s does not. Butch’s driveway is 40 feet past his neighbor’s.
