    I hope no one falls asleep while reading this....

    The first person on my list is Paul. Sir thank you for such a wonderful place to learn, share, and laugh. I have no problem if you feel the need to create an award for your self, as you deserve it for all that you have done for us.

    Next is Cats4uandme(Jeremy) and The Fishwisperer(Lonnie) That sunny, cold day in Pekin at Powerton Lake showed me what the BOC really is. You agreed to meet someone you didn't know, and go fishing. That was a wonderful and amazingly COLD day. First time I had ever seen a castnet used, and I learned a few things about rigs, and how to fish with 6oz weights in heavy current. I left that day knowing that I had two new friends.

    Slingblade, your third on my list. You let me pass on the same friendship that was shown to me. You are a great friend.

    Fourth on my list is Schoe. I can't say enough about this man. Anyone who has the pleasure to meet him will agree. You taught me how to jug fish, how to bank pole, and how wonderful liver's are for bait. You always have your door open, and are always willing to share from your experiances. Weather it be moving a tractor in the snow, or taking a three hour ride to fish at Clinton, you make the day enjoyable, and worthwile.

    Finally, to all of you. I can't list everyone's name who's passed on a bit of knowledge, or a good laugh. Those who have lent an ear, or voiced an opinion. ALL of you mean the world to me. I wouldn't give up the last year of the BOC for all of the money in the world.

    Thank you all,
    Ray

    P.S. Darryl, when are we going Bass fishing????
