I agree Joe,  I think a special thanks needs to go out to Bruce Haukom for taking control of this process.  I'm pretty sure he must have had a few gray hairs but the end result was an organized, efficient and on-schedule event.  I never heard one grumble from anyone all day.

Thanks Bruce, great job.

A fun event; a good effort by all involved. Hope Bruce is relaxing with his feet up; good job Bruce!    :thumbsup:  

Won a Fedora bow off of the bow board. Joe sold me the ticket. Thanks, Joe!    :jumper:

Many thanks to Bruce, his "staff" and the multitude that contributed to the banquet!!! From what I could see everything came together without any problems and everyone had a good time. These banquets are turning into a great big family reunion. The best part is we are like minded in our passion for shooting the stick bow.

Many thanks to Nathan Andersohn for coming to be our speaker. His presentation on sheep hunting was very down to earth and he emphasized the rewards that the challenges and beautiful country gave him.

    I was very pleased to see that there were many kids in attendance. This was good to see. I hope they show up at the shoots.

I wish I had pics to post but I forgot my camera. Please post pics if you have them.

Yes it was a great event.  I missed the last few years and thought the new venue was really nice.  Thanks to eveyone who helped out, your hard work really showed.  Maybe next time I'll win something!

I sure have to agree, but I can't figure out how you could tell that he got any more gray hairs????  :confused:    :confused:    :confused:    :biglaugh:

Great banquet, Bruce is a banquet machine. Him and the commitee did a great job.

It is just like a great big family reunion for me, looking forward to next year already.

With a sparkle in his eye Nathan captivated all with an inspirational talk about his sheep grandslam. If you could have seen the kids eyes they were captivated. Thanks Nathan and thanks Orion for taking care of the speakers

I had the pleasure to talk to Dave Peteren for a while at the Kalamazoo show. He stated that of all the traditional venues he has been to Wisconsin ranks at the top. He was the guest speaker a few years back and the memories are still fresh in his mind. Although I was not able to attend I heard it was once again a well put together show. Nice job to all involved and I look forward to attending next year.

Congrats to everyone who helped prepare this banquet... looked awfully darn successful to me!  My pictures didn't turn out too well, so if anyone has any good banquet photos that you wouldn't mind being used in The StumpShooter, please send them my way.  Good to see everyone.

Joe Brehm was taking a bunch. He looked like he knew what he was doing with the camera so he should have a couple good ones.
