    The first National was a big success, the planning for number 2 will be in the works shortly. I truly hope all you Arkansas members will be able to accompany me to the second National. We will have a great time!!

    A new law went into effecton July 15. You must submit to a hat check when you cross into Arkansas. Certain hats are deemed too ugly to be worn in Arkansas,

    No Tin that law was to make sure that the hat was big enough to cover their ugly faces so it wouldn't scare cattle so bad that they wouldn't produce milk.

    It's also to keep dogs from going wild when out of state visiters stay overnight. A lot of good hunting dogs have disappeared because some out of state visiters resemble sasquach and the dogs haven't stopped running yet.
    Some have even turned up in Mississippi.

    it will be hard to beat the no 1 gathering but if it can be done, I think the BOC staff and Paul can do just that after seeing what they did for the first one. You brothers an sisters that didn't or couldn't attend sure did miss a great time.

    First off, the number one was a huge success! Glad i got to meet one of those rowdy Ohio folks. Tea, your welcome anytime, madison and the wife really made it pleasant to camp next to ya!!! But, you gotta lay off that Lighter fluid, especially when i am trying to win a battle with a female over the proper way to build a fire. At least you did get the layout of the logs right! LMAO!!! Thanks for the smores also , they were great!!!

    Let me just say that if you missed the first one, you missed a great time. The one thing that would make a second one better would be more involvement in attendance from our fellow Arkansans!! Paul, and the staff went thru great lengths to make sure we had a good time!

    I know some could not attend for reasons beyond their controll. I also know some could not afford to go financially! And ,for some, well--- what can i say, they just did not go!!!!

    I offered a ride to whom ever wanted to go bad enough, and all they had to do was ride!! But, got no response!

    But, did manage to get a couple there, thanks to the wife for the encouragement and thanks to Paul(Gardenhawks Husband) for do the driving at the last minute! I was already there, then next thing i know my wife, Kimber, and Paul pop in!!! What a suprise to me and the BOC!!!

    So, with that said, come on ARKANSAS , MAKE PLANS NOW! START A SAVINGS JAR FOR THE NATIONAL #2 NOW!!! If you need a ride or something then let us know, we will try to accomudate you! Let's show our Arkansas BOC pride at National #2!!!

    I know Judy and I sure had a ball and we are looking forward to the next one. Our BOC Staff and Paul busted their humps for all of us and worked so hard at the gathering. We hope at the next one that they get to rest a little more.

    We sure enjoyed meeting all of you wonderful folks and sharing special time with you. We can't wait for NG2.
