Dean we had a GREAT DAY!!!! Thanks SO MUCH for getting it all set up and alerting us to this festival....made it home about an hour ago and already let in a ton of new people tonight and we got over 1100 on line right now....
Here are my few pics....short of a little lunch break we literally were talking with folks from 9 to 5 today, put some antlers and a yote rug in a booth at a CRAFT show and you are going to meet some folks and draw every camo jacket in the crowd. You know what ? Short of tired legs and the lost voice, I could do that daily and it would not get old. The kids were the best, despite the wear and tear on the yote rug, it got pet by every kid there...LOL...
To all the new folks that might be checking out HPA for the first time this evening....I think i can speak for all of us there and say IT WAS OUR PLEASURE to meet and talk with all of you today. I hope you like what you see, I think you will and I think you will also see I was not kidding about the GOOD FOLKS here at this site.
My pics are alot like Dean's, but i will post them anyway...I was not going to bring my coyote rug to add to the display, to keep it protected, but I am so glad i did the KIDS loved it and it drew some folks over I made not of got to talk to otherwise.
I can say you give a guy with 20,000 posts two big coffees and that many people to talk to HE IS GOING TO TALK ALOT, my voice is a little shot but IT WAS A GREAT DAY. We gave over 250 Buck pool flyers out today....so you long time HPAers are going to have some competition.
We are already planning a 2011 return. Thanks to the DCNR folks at Prince Galletzin SP for hosting it and treating us so well.
And Zane once again CONGRATS on that opening day buck, and Dean thanks for the quick tour of the camp....GOOD DAY guy GOOD DAY!!
