I had a blast even though I was the brunt of a "joke", I knew it was all in fun and even helped raise a few bucks for PBS. It is great to see old friends and meet old ones. I can't wait till the next one. Senior Councilman Bob Seltzer and I were talking on the way home about plans for Nashville. If you are not a member of PBS you are missing out on some good times.

Gene, she's blind as a bat.  When folks give me the usuall strange look when I'm standing next to her, I just tell them I'm her body guard before they say anything and that gets the tension out of the air.   :D

This was my first also and I ditto everything stated above. I did see Joey do his seminar and I strongly recommend any bowhunting org. to put him on your list of seminar speakers   :thumbsup:  

I missed the tradgang lunch   :banghead:   but I did get to meet a few.

I must have something wrong with my computer, correct me if I'm wrong, go back and look at the picture Terry posted with Gene and Barry beside his wife.

Does Barry have a Halo over his head? I know I'm seeing things.   :jumper:  

Thank You PBS!

What a great weekend it was.  Thanks to all the PBS officers and members who spent many months working to make this event a hugh success. It was great seeing old friends and making new ones. Tradgang was well represented as you can see from all the previous posts...and Whip is right on....Tradgang and PBS go together very well.  Whip...I'll buy you that beer I owe at Nashville in two years.   :thumbsup:

Terry I told my wife about all the things Blake was doing to me, I was looking for a little sympathy, but all I got was laughter. I still can't wipe the grin of my face.

Jack, you are a true gentleman, whether you like it or not, you are one of the great ones, your years in the field with stick and string have earned you the respect of us all.

When I grow up 8^), I hope I will have done as well as you have.


Thank you all who attended  :clapper:  , the lack of sleep and need for a vacation after the vacation to catch up on rest is all worth it after all the smiling faces and compliments.

Once again it takes FOREVER for the two years to go by and the weekend goes by in a blur. Its a shame I only get to see most of these guys for those couple days and am lucky if I even get to talk to them at all during the weekend! I never got to talk to Gene and Barry at all, until the airport, when they were "taking out undesireables" and pointing at me? I did see Terry briefly! As was said, Joebuck did an outstanding job, there is always one that wants to make everyone else look bad! Monty and the twins did awesome as the speakers(as usual). The officers and the crew in Pitts, did an awesome job, I have an idea about how much effort is involved and it is monumental. There are always things that can be done better and several of us, discussed that, we have talked about putting a banquet manual together, so all the details don't get forgotten or misplaced each time and I am going to push for that to get done, this time! I would have liked to seen a bigger vendors area myself and more vendors. One comment that stood out was that from the shuttle driver taking us back to the airport, he said, "I have never seen a group here that hugged each other so much"! I am looking forward to seeing everyone in Nashville and no doubt there will be a strong need for volunteers there, so think about helping out and if you have suggestions to improve, add or change things, be sure to pass them along. I personally want to thank, Russell, Krista, Don D, Don B and Ethan for working on the 2010 banquet site committee, Nashville will be awesome!

PBS was so much fun this year. As a vender, we have a great opportunity to meet nearly everyone. Others may want to consider that benefit for the next banquet and sign up for a table or booth. The committee did a great job.

Terry Green and his wife are a fine example of southern charm and hospitality. Very refreshing.

Thank you to everyone. Mike

Just want to take a moment to tho recognize the ground crew from PA, Rod Bear, Mike Ruperto and their crew made this event the sucess that it was, without the assistance of these guys and gals, I would not want to venture a guess at how it would have gone.

The hotel staff was beyond helpful and the most polite I have ever worked with, no request was ever treated like anything but a priority and responded to with a smile.

But most of all you who attended made it the true sucess it was.

Thank you all

Just to give everyone an idea on what is involved in making these functions go smoothly, Rod Bear told me that he had been to that hotel EVERY week for the last six months! The preparations for 2010 have already been going on for more than a year AND there has been some discussion about the next two banquets after that!

This was probably the most depressing weekend I've spent in many a year !!!! I MISSED GATHERING FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE LAKE OF THE OSARKS!!! I glad you all had such a great time. My wife and I were pretty droopy around here all weekend. She did talk to some of the gals at the ladies auction though and that helped her get through it.

The first time I attended a PBS Banquet was here in Baltimore and I only went the one Saturday night, but this time I was there for the whole 4 days. Man what an awesome time I had and too be able to rub shoulders with a bunch of fine folks. I really had a great time. And it also made me to realize the amount of work to pull something like this off. Commendations go to all the hard workers that made this gathering possible. I am already looking forward to Nashville, and my wife wants to go with me to nashville after I told her of the great time I had. Makes me proud to be a PBS member. Thanks to all.

Tony, I am disapointed I didn't get to meet you in person, I saw you but never got the time to catch up to you, let's make sure that does not  happen in Nashville.

It should also be mentioned the Thursday night BBQ was a great addition to the weekend's festivities. Many of you may have missed it. I hope to see the BBQ at future gatherings. The relaxed atmosphere was perfect for catching up and meeting new people. Also a special thank you, at-a-boy, and pat on the back to Rodger Rutz for the fine music. He was a one man show that lacked nothing. Thank You Rodger

My 3rd Gathering, wife's 2nd, and my son Connor's (19 months) 1st of what hopefully will be many (he was the little blond boy in camo pants running all over the hotel). What a great time, old friends, new friends, and it was really nice to be able to drive to one of these for a change! I think I blew a major blood vessel in my brain laughing so hard at Uncle Gene's telling of how he met the Dwarf!!!  :biglaugh:
