    Wonder if they talked with Rod from the Belleville NEws Democrat. Or did someone talk to them personally? I need to get my hand on this magazinee issue so I can read it!

    I meant to bring the magazine with me today so I could give some info about it, but in my hurry to get out the door I forgot it. If anybody doesn't subscribe, it is WELL worth the $18 for one year. You get a magazine every 2 weeks, and they are always full of info.

    I got onto their website, but wasn't able to find the story or a link to it. The issue just came out so it may be a little while before they put it on their site.

    I would have to agree it would be very nice to meet the man who put us all togather last year at Rend lake. Hope you make it from that Peach state to join us way up here in the far north

    Great news thank you for sharing this with us im glad to hear that the BOC is growing bigger and the news of the BOC is getting out of there, I say if this keeps up we will have all kinds of new members joining this great web site that we know as the BOC.

    You are correct...
    It is a pleasure getting people interested in the BOC as it has become a second family to me...Tons of great information and tons of great people...

    Illinois Outdoor News is delivered to the boat shop I work at and is free for our customers. We get about a dozen copies every time. Good magazine.

    I have spoken to the Chief Editor of the Illinois Outdoor News Magazine and He said Rod Kloeckner of the Belleville news Democrat is also a writer for them and they at Illinois Outdoor News try to keep our eyes and ears open...

    Many Thanks goes out to them Both Ralph Loos (Chief Editor) and Rod Kloeckner(Writer) and Aaron Lands for helping with the story...

    Here are 2 Photo's of the Article and the Front Page of Illinois Outdoor News...If for some reason you can't see these photo's and wish to please PM me and I will send you the full photo size

    I don't know about famous but it sure is nice to get the exposure to the gathering and the BOC...

    It is only going to grow with us holding the event at the same time every year and at the same place...

    Just think Brian - our smiling faces might be in a publication anywhere in the country. Perhaps you should start your own mail order business selling official autographed limited edition bwhupp prints?

    Aaron got a phone call from the Associated Press or some fool thing and wanted to use an article for further publications nation wide. They wanted to also use the picture I took with my camera phone when we were at Baldwin of Aaron holding his "15lb bluecat". :smile2:
