    In honor of our beloved friend and brother Tony Spergin our annual Ohio gathering will now be called the Tony Spergin Memorial Gathering. I can't think of any better way of celebrating our friendship with such a great person. He loved to attend the gatherings and breakfast meetings that we had and always jumped on the chance to meet up with a brother. I figure this is the best way to give a little back to a person who gave us all such a great friendship.

    We will now be holding a memorial service before dinner around 1:30pm on saturday. This will give everyone a chance to share their fond memories of Tony with each other. I would also like to have a memorial tournament saturday night with the proceeds going to Tony's wife Eva. This would be strictly by donation only and you can give however much you would like. I will try to get a trophy to donate this week for first place.

    I will be at the Dillon campgrounds around 6 or 6:30 friday night. Anyone wishing to show up earlier and get set up or to meet up please do. Friday night will be primarily meeting up and heading out for a night of fishing. You have Dillon Lake and the Muskingum River to choose from. So where you fish is up to you. Saturday afternoon I would like to have a potluck lunch around 2:00 pm. Everyone just bring a dish of some sorts or refreshments. Please post what you plan to bring so I can get a list going that way we know what we have and what we need to get. If anyone has or can get some channel cat fillets please let me know and maybe we can have a fish fry again this year. After the lunch it will be off for another night of fishing. Anyone having any question please let me know.

    Here is a list of members that plan to attend so far.
    If I missed anyone for the list please let me know. Trying to do this in a hurry as I have a million things to catch up on.

    If anyone needs directions to the campgrounds click on the link below then click get directions at the top and put in your address. It will get you real close just go about 1/2 mile on out the road and you are there.

    I'll be there Friday evening. Call me with what to bring. I'll also see about a trophy. Call me Jason (Landis) if there is anything at all you need. I will post funeral info here as soon as I get it.

    We are also rustling up a small fund for a floral arrangement. Checking with Mgmt to make sure it is ok.

    Trust me, I'm a used car dealer.... Tony did. :wink:

    Ive never met Tony personally. I only know him from the BOC. Ive always enjoyed his post and wisdom, a gentle man I can say. I cannot attend but will be there in thought and prayer. RIP Tony my BOC brother.
