    Hello everyone,
    not been on the BOC much this year...I have been struggling with my job and trying to find my place...anyway enough about all that...

    This is my last year running the Rend Lake Gathering and would like to propose a date for everyone...

    The weekend of June 13 2009 is the free fishing weekend for Illinois and would like to have it on this day...

    I have asked Brian Hupp if he would like to continue on with holding the Gatherings and organizing them...Have some family issues going on with health and new job and all...I still wanna be apart of them just don't have the time to carry out the duties of organizing and planning so I have asked if Brian and his Family would take that part over...

    If the weekend of June 13 2009 does not work out that will be ok with me just please let me know what weekend would be good for all...

    I would like to just keep it simple this year and everyone bring a dish and I will bring what ever is needed...please just drop me a line as to what you would like me to bring...

    Thank You all,

    Please have a wonderful breakfast and let me know how it goes...Sorry I could not make the breakfast as I have to go to school for my job that weekend...

    Hugs to everyone,

    Paul

    That sounds good to me Paul. Keeping it simple is also ok with me, lets cut some of the frilly stuff and fish instead.

    Deerhunter, those dates sounds good for us . I think those dates will help get more people to come if they can FISH FREE. Hope everything works out for you and your family. P.S I think that was a good chose in getting Brian to host the 2010 gathering. If I can help let me know.:wink:

    All I can say is right now, I just want to go fishing!

    Really looking forward to taking on the torch after Paul has done it for the past 3 years. Definetely would love to see it continue and grow each year as it has been so far.

    As for the 13th, that looks like a fabulous weekend. I love the free fishing weekends and hope we can pull in more brothers from other states.

    may as well put me on the list. the only thing that could keep me away is an untimely deployment
