05-26-06 - Beginning next week, the Texoma State Lodge will be up for bids again. Oklahoma Tourism officials are hoping to sell the land to a private developer who will upgrade it into a business center and tourist destination.
A previous deal fell through when a Connecticut based buyer could not come up with the $1 million up front. Now, the state is asking for a $50,000 initial payment. They will be accepting bids from June 1st through August 23rd.
