A great time guys. Thanks for all of your hard work. I met some new friends and saw few folks I hadn't run into in years. We brought a friends kid with us, he had a ball. I gave him some of the decoys we won and we had to stop on the way home and buy him his own duck call.
Thanks for the pics Troy, I see you got my best side.

Good Job! A really friendly crowd. Beautiful grounds :thumbsup:
