    Not sure where to begin with this post, so hopefully i can cover it all.

    First off let me start by saying thank you to each and every one of you that attended. All of you deserve a award, because ya"ll are what makes the BOC what it is. Without member paticipation, there would be no BOC!

    Secondly - I want to say thank you for all the comments on how well Myself and Trisha handled the gathering. We enjoy putting together a gathering in spite of how much work it takes and all the emotional and financial obligation involved. We do it for the spiritual and emotnal feeling that we receive from it when we see our guest enjoying the friendship and fellowship of other BOC members! THANK YOU!

    My hat goes off to each of our Moderators and our founder for making this such a great place to call home! Each of you deserve more than myself and Angelkitty could ever give you!

    We had several Moderators attend this gathering and I want to personally thank them for all the help that they gave us. On behalf of the Degray Gathering Attendees we awarded two of those moderators that have been with the BOC for many years with a Plague in appreciation of there hard work and dedication. Those awards went out to: TopsgtLawrence and Mike Holladay

    Kevin - Your very much appreciated for all that you do - we love ya for it, so hope there was no hard feelings. Thanks for all the help you have given me and promoting the BOC and the Arkansas Gatherings!

    Also awarded a plague for founding this wonderful site as well as for all his hard work and dedication was PAUL LOUDERBACK. Paul was unable to attend this event and was missed! We will be sending him his plaque Via Snail Mail! THANK YOU PAUL!



    There was another member I want to thank, that has helped promote this gathering and let me know things that i might have missed on updates and so forth. BUD - THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    There is way too many others to list each of you by name.


    Randell (shepdog) - enjoyed having you on our site! We will make up for fishing lost due to the weather!

    The weekend went great even if mother nature attended more than what we wanted her too.:smile2: We had pretty good weather with just showers here and there with sunshine to follow up until Saturday morning. Myself and Shepdog got in some night fishing Friday night with three Bullheads caught. The Food was great. I probably gained a few pounds from eating so much. The Friendships made were Awesome - got to meet several new members!

    In closing - I hope all of you had a great time, made new friends, enjoyed the fellowship, and we hope you will return NEXT year! THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL THE HARD WORK EACH OF YOU DID TO HELP MAKE THIS A AWESOME YEAR!

    We were hoping Paul lounderback was going to be there. But we understand why he couldn't. So here is the Plaque that we had made up.
    A special thanks goes out to Puppypal+ (Glenda) owner of the Trophy shop in Sheridan, Arkansas. For making all three plaques for Mike Holladay, TopSgtLawrence and Paul our Founder of the B.O.C.

    All 3 photos are the same, but, different lighting so all of you can read it.

    More photos later.....
