"Hey There" Danno. I've only been coming out from under the lurker rock now and then but intended to say hey.

Sorry to hear about the relative, but hope to see you guys down there on Saturday.

The Mrs don't even know we're practicin lately due to grankids living with us etc. Almost had her talked into going to Motown, she'd of thought it a break, but not to be.

Take care.........

Yeah I saw your good friends Josh. Hey I got a bunch of old leaker do you think you could store them for me ????? :laughing:
You sure were sucking up to speck. :eek:
Kidding !
I wonder where his old buddy Burroughs was he must of been spending some quality time with his clan of boyscouts up in the hills :eek: :laughing:
He's one guy I really wanted to run in to today. :hammering:

Good to put some faces with names.
Ace & fireduck good to see nmbound made the long haul, hope they have enough guys to have the comp. the turn out was pretty disappointing , maybe 5 guy's calling in the CA state pretty weak showing.
Guess I'm going to have dust off the comp calls and get involved again.
I'd hate to see us loose this contest again.

Hey fireduck you guys must not have to many fires out your way. huh!

I was glad to see someone else besides me living large. :salude: :laughing: L/M/F/A/O It was good to meet ya bud.

had a good time today, and like last year very disappointed in what i found (or lack of) there.

was hoping to get a good look at the ghg selection, I got to see some of it, but not what i wanted. I wish Avery would get them dang boats out of China a little quicker. :hammering:

bought a few deke's and a lot of shells. some other gear also.

put my order in for a new ground force blind. (another item that was not in attendance today).

It was nice meeting you guys today. Callinfowl, Caliduckfire and Duck Freak.

Always nice to see Rel, thought Sean was going to be heading to Stuttsgaurd again this year Rel.

Slow shooter was there. I made the best move of the day. For those of you who don't know, Slow Shooter (BAIZ) is a Raffle Slut. He wins things at raffles like the raffle was rigged. I had to leave early and gave him all of my tix. he called later and told me that I won a $50 gift cert. Best move all day. It was nice of AutoLife to give me back about 7% of my money. :eek: :hammering: :hammering: :help:

If i left out anybody, it was because i ment to......not really, just a very short memory.

I'm just fun'in with you Roger.
Like I have any room to talk. :laughing:
It was nice to meet you, you porn freak. :toofunny:

I picked up one of those wader bags also, nice bag for $36.00
I also bought a case of shells$ 40.00 kent 1 oz dove loads and a
double extra chubby quackhead tee shirt for $16.00

I was pretty dissapointed with thier selection this year and the turn out was pretty poor compaired to the past few years.

It was good to meet some new friends and hack on some old friends. :thumbsup:

He11 at least it wasn't 106 in the shade this year. :cool:

I think that gas prices kept some folks away and the word probably got around that the GHG stuff didn't quite make the dock in time.

Autolife tries hard to put on a good show and while attendance was lighter than last year it was still a blast to go.

Sorry I missed ya over there Dan. I though I was going to get a chance to harsh on you for cheap laffs.
:laughing:

This was only the second contest I've watched so I'm looking forward to going up to the OWS next week to see some more calling.

Hey Josh! If I'm so dang lucky... Why wasn't I the one that won something? :hammering: :laughing:
All this for a bowl of borscht.

Hey slowshooter,
yeah heck Sorry I missed you also.
I'm not harp'in on Autolife Shiioot their the only place with in 2hr's that
has a decent selection these days, it a pretty sad state of affairs for the CA waterfowlers.

I think you nailed it The word must of got out that their stock was stuck
in China, you know how slow those junk boats are.
It was worth the drive though ,you can't beat the sights and smells of downtown Modesto.

:getdown: :tounge: Oh lordy here we go again !!!! :laughing:

Hey slow what in the he11 is the O.W.S ?
Is it that " Over Weight Singles" retreat you've been talking about ?
I sure wish my wife pictured above, would let me go up to that thing.
Is it pay per pound or what ??? :laughing:
