Due to the nature of the sessions on Friday as well as acknowledging "Friday Night" in the Fall is traditionally a hectic day to schedule, dinner on your own was planned as a way to reduce total workshop admission fees.  This also allows attendees more freedom.  With three hours between scheduled sessions, attendees can travel as far as Joplin for a meal if so desired.  Below are some dining options:

Locally (within a brisk walking distance):
Leon's Drive-in
Turtle Stop (has small grill)

Fairland (HWY 60 to the south):
Two different family cafes
Simple Simon Pizza (Snak-Atak)

Seneca (HWY 60 to the north):  A slightly larger selection then Fairland

Grove, Neosho (MO) and Miami: Many fast food choices as well as some family dining

Joplin, MO - Just about anything you'd care to eat!
