Hope you can make it Jerry. It would be nice if we had enough board members there to take care of one of our meetings. give it a little thought and we can set a date for our next board meeting at Madison.

Bow Jam is just a couple days away now and I am getting ready. My menu is set for the pot luck and I think it will go over good.

Keep in mind the camp fire is BYO fire wood so make sure you bring some.

Karen and I will see you all there.

I wish I could make this one, but just not going to work out this year.

I hope all have a fun and safe time and get a chance to create some cool new bows!!!

I guess I will do a dutch oven lasagna for the potluck on Sat.
I'll have WTA membership stuff with me for those that need to renew dues or wish to join WTA.

Great time at bow jam with several newcomers and the old standbys. It was amazing to see the kids enthusiasm. They worked their fingers to the bone and were having fun doing it. Thanks for all the experts that spent the time to teach those in need.  Hoping this is able to continue however Howard mention this may be his last year so the committee will need to look at alternatives which we have been prepared for. Thanks Howard and Nancy for all the time you put in to make this a success.
