Mickey and I were there Saturday along with Tonto and Tkyhunter from Illinois. Not sure anyone else from Illinois was there but we sure had a great time meeting all the BOC folks from neighboring states and rubbing shoulders with some of the hard working folks that make the BOC possible. The Breakfast Buffet with all the BOC folks was fun. Eric Simcox did a great job as MC for the event. Interesting speakers from Cabela's, a guide on the Rock River, etc. made for some interesting information. Displays of fishing equipment, free dip bait samples, free videos etc. made for interesting browsing. More of us from Illinois should take advantage of this annual event and if you need a tour of the area Mickey makes a great guide. He was gracious enough to show me areas on Ky. Lake and Barkley lake for ramps and fishing spots and one of the good bait and tackle shops in the area. Many of you know Gary Eads from in Indiana who attended our Rend gathering last summer. He sat with us during the event .......he's looking great following his surgery and loosing weight like crazy. Well, I will hush but as you can see I enjoyed the event and think you will too.
