    Is there any plans to have the annual SiFi gathering this year? This has been a nice gathering and would hate to see it overlooked. I know last year dates were close to this years plans for an expo.

    it was a pretty good time last year except for the minor problem with the skipjack hole being closed due to an oil spill:wink:

    Cattoon,
    SciFi was a moderator on the BOC for many years. He was one of the most loved and respected members the BOC has ever had. His "Welcome" to all new members was something mentioned by many.
    He had a get together every year there by where he lived (at the Kentucky Dam Village State Park Restaurant) that was well attended and the guys have just continued it every year since SciFi's passing.
    Hope this helped.

    After we got back across the ferry we ended up fishing there. I am sure we weren't supposed to, but we did. LOL

    I was at the last years sci-fi-gathering with griz and his family....we had a good time and a good breakfast too. With Guest speakers on catfishing. Some of the sponsors were set up with safari rods and Bait tanks and much more. It was a good time and I'm looking forward to the next one. Sign me up!!!!!!:big_smile: I hope the skipjacks are hitting for all the guys who come to catch much needed bait supplies.

    For the skipjack run at Ky/Barkley, we were about three weeks early last year, with the gathering. I agree this was a great gathering with a good turnout. The speakers and sponsors was a great addition. With all the talk about secret 7 maybe Jeff can make it this year.
