    What an absolutely awesome outing!! One must experience the Otttis Castle to truly appreciation the dedication, passion and love behind every brick. To have Rusty, one of the two original men who constructed the structure guiding our tour made it all the more fascinating. And I must agree with Teresa, a terrific opportunity for some beautiful pics! Thanks Jim for arranging a great tour!

    Excellent outing!!! Really interesting place built as a freeform sculputure with its' general design based on an Irish Castle with lots of symbolism integrated into the overall structure design "to glorify Jesus Christ." Wonderful to have one of the two people who designed and physically built the structure give us the tour of this very unique private property which is a really beautiful and original construction.

    Is there a waiting list? I was out of town & only had the opportunity to find out about this tonight. I was disappointed to see it closed. : (

      The venue only allows for a limited number of people and the waitlist is already more than will have a chance should someone drop out. I will try to let you know in advance of our next visit.

    Jim, Can I get on a wait list? I have been a dues-paying Sidetrackers member for over 10 years.

    I have closed the RSVP's for this event so we can allow for Sidetrackers members to move up as others cancel.
    There will be a weekly request for everyone to update their status.
    Thanks,
    Jim Nackley
