    Although the drive was very long, I had a wonderful time at the sinker making gathering at Nuke 1 up at London, Ar.
    I worked off at 11pm Friday night and finally got to bed, after making sure I had everything ready to load in the morning, sometime around 1 am. I got up at 4am and got dressed and loaded everything in my truck and headed out the driveway at 5:22 am. I got to Nuke 1 around 10 am.
    Everyone was still getting things lined up to be able to start making sinkers when I arrived and some had lines out also. Once several of the members got to making sinkers some others joined in and they started an assembly line which made everything go much quicker and they made a lot of weights very quick.
    I very much enjoyed meeting my BOC brothers that I have not met before and visiting again with those that I have. We all had a really good time even tho the skips weren't there like we all had hoped.
    Thanks to all of you that came and made this sinker making gathering a huge success.

    Had a wonderful time meeting new members and striking up conversation with some ole friends. Met Kev, Don and his son, and Cass brother, I forgot his name already, this is why I hate to post peoples's names because I forget. Pits and Cass, always good to see you. Newt and Trish, you the best. The anchors that you Made were top notch Newt.

    This was my second gathering, First sinker making and the most enjoyable
    day I have had in a while, bsing with all the folks that came to nuke 1, boy I was sure tired Sunday when I finally got home, A special thanks go out to Vernon and Johnny for the use of their equipment, if you wanted a sinker they had a mold for it, Cass sure cooks a mean pinto bean, would of starved if not for her.Thanks to the Boc for a good time.:big_smile::big_smile:
