Congrats CWood Man and Mitch and Glenn! Good to see all you guys again and great to meet some of you for the first time,picnic food was excellent.

Crossing the Bar
Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar.

Well we tried, but no luck for us. Beautiful day with great company and awesome picnic afterwards. Congrats to Cwood, Mitch and Glenn. It was nice meeting a bunch of new people and seeing a few old friends, great chili, rabbit stew and pasta salad. Looking forward to next year.
Oh here are some nice photos I caught LOL

I may only have one and a half legs, but I still stand tall, life goes on.

What a gorgeous day! The pike bite wasn't great but we got one, and within casting range of the ramp!!!! LOL Thanks to Paul for heading this and for Mitch to keep it going. We got two bass as well but stuck to just pike baits. Food was great and the conversation afterwards priceless as always! Glad we had the morning Fireball to keep warm!

Was nice to have a 15 minute ride home for once!!!!!!!!

Thanx j...was I horizontal when I took those pics? Maybe..thank God I cooked the day before...we would all be in the hospital.'wood took that like a man,even after putting out a "false flag" report of a chatter bait bite.cagey old mfr.pic of a Crocked wench....who would rather swim in a dumpster of broken glass and alcohol than use a SPOON to eat spaghetti .. a impromptu survey was taken by a (mine) female of questionable (there is a substantial amount of Cherokee in there as well) Italian origin about the use of spoons when eating spaghetti...then a finger(poppy,s finger was aimed) at...you know who you are and then...your "orientation" was brought to question.pray for me,I've got another 30 + years with this crazy broad..this is most likely our last event with Mitch and co. ...we have mixed emotions,can't wait to get out of communist ct ..but going to miss all y,all terribly....family.
