    It would be great to see some Ohio representation at the National. I grew up in Ohio and had a blast.

    This event only comes around once every few years, and is something you dont want to miss, if you can make it happen.

    I plan on being there. Already have the date set aside. I have to give up my yearly salmon fishing trip but it will be worth it.

    If Skip attends, I'll be there.

    Kentucky Lake is only 2 hours from where my parents live.

    You know what I think? This state has more folks that say they will show up for an event than ever do.
    How do I know do you ask? I've been on here for over 10 years.
    Every time we have a sinker making session, or an Ohio Gathering, 1% of registerd Ohio members ever show up.

    I see you guys every day, posting and postulating, but when the chips are down, no one wants to stand up except the guys here in central Ohio.
    It makes me kinda sad.

    Over in PA it seems like they are united, as a state.

    Why can't the folks in the southwest, northeast, south, and north join those of us in the middle?

    I totally agree. I went to the may meyhem gathering this spring. I wasnt that friendly and open when there and i appologize. But in my defense i had just joined the BOC like a month previous and didnt know you guys real well...Now its different. I wanna meet as many as possible now. I totally agree with what skip is saying too. Why cant we unite as a state and do great things? I dont know how we would do it BUT if someone comes up with someone good then im in.

    I was at the 1st National gathering in 2006 and quite simply, it was life altering. I will be there and encourage everyone to go.

    Skip, I hope you don't exaggerate your fish weights as much as your time on here! lmao :smile2::smile2::smile2:
    It is true though, we always have a bunch of no shows, but think about this, if we cant get them to travel in the state, how in the heck will we get them to travel out of it? :roll_eyes::eek:oooh::crazy:

    Your both right. Out of 3 get togethers we have had in this part of the state in the past 2 years we have no one from any other part of the state show up, although we do have participation from Michigan members. I remember asking if you guys could have one in a more central part of the state instead of eatern central part of the state. The reply I got was if you don't like it have your own. So we did start having our own and always have open invites to all members.
    It's easy to gripe about the guys who don't show because it's a 3 or 4 hour drive one way when you live within an hour of it.

    So Skip, are you committing to the National? You weren't there at the last one. Netman and I were.

    Regardless, Guys, this is indeed the greatest gathering of lovers of catfishing on earth. Don't miss it if you can help it. Carpool, hitch, ride the rails. It is like an Ohio gathering on steroids. You will meet people in person, people you talk to everyday online, perhaps for the ONLY time in your life. I am telling you, it can CHANGE your life!

    I may be wrong but I think I first saw the BOC in 98 or 99.
    Am I off that much? Maybe it was 2000. I dunno, lol. I'm gettin too old to remember past this year lol. Is this what it"s like for you and shawn?

    No, sadly I won't be able to attend. I saw that you guys were there and had a good time at the last one. I can't wait till I get the oppurtunity to attend one myself.
    There are so many folks on here from around the country that I'd like to meet.

    P.S. In the meantime if you want to go out fishing for flathheads this fall gimme a call. I think I can squeeze one more spot outta Ben. lol

    I'm pretty much booked up that weekend, already have the vacation time off for it. If for some reason those plans fall through, highly unlikely, but I'll have to make my way to the gathering.

    You have only missed one in Ohio which was in May. Go to the main forum and then click on Ohio and you will see a concentration of ...uh... Ohioans...:wink:

    Welcome to the BOC!

    Miss the NG2??

    I will walk there if I have to. The NG1 was such a blast!! I met so many great people and the BOC is more like family then just internet people you chat with.

    I encourage everyone that can go to make the trip.
