:0a34: I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. It has been almost a year since I joined the BOC and what a year it has been. I met alot of members this year and had a chance to fish with almost just as many. That has been a hightlight for me. It has given me a chance to fish alot of new water and a chance to fish with people who love to fish as much as I do. I have made some great friends over the past year. Friends that are hard to come by. Thats why I cant wait until we all get together for the gatherings. Each and every one is better than the last and I am sure they will just get better. I think Kansas holds the record for the most gatherings in one year.:cool2::smile2: I hope next year has its share of them. We have a great bunch of people here. Well, I hope next year is as good as this one was. I hope it holds many new trips with my fellow brothers. I hope this winter is a short one.:cross::smile2: Merry Christmas Everyone and a Happy New Year!! May 2009 be your best year yet! :0a22::0a23: FISH ON!!
