Generous; One word from Dan Beckwith about Saturday night, and it just about covers everything.

Thanks to all of you that took much of your valuable time on a Saturday afternoon and evening, to make the trip.

Thanks to all of the generous donations from our members.

Thanks to all of the generous donations from Paul Redavid, 3Rivers, Muzzy, Arvin Weaver, Scott Davidson, Tim Sandford, Tommy Roberts, Clyde Gaskins, Ray Hammond.

Thanks for the generous donations of made to order bows from Billy Hudson, Big Jim and Barbara Babcock.

Thanks to the generous donations of the hunting and fishing trips from Jerry Russell, Dennis Rice, Roger Boykin, Dave Bureau and Ray Hammond.

Thanks to all who purchased tickets for all of these wonderful items at the banquet, and those who sent in tickets by mail, and supported the auctions.
Man, did Gene do a great job or what? “You bought it!”

Thanks to all who worked from start to finish, to make this banquet run as smooth as it possibly could, and make sure everyone, and everything was taken care of.

After the tally of Banquet ticket, auction and advanced thru the mail ticket sales, minus meager expenses for the raffle tickets, postage, printing and a few inexpensive
Picture frames, we will deposit right at 5K.

We needed the support, we asked for the support, and everyone responded Generously with so much support; thank you!

Our job as your officers is to make sure not one penny is spent in a frivolous way. Misers, penny pinchers, whatever fits the bill.
It is a huge responsibility and it will be remembered, where each and every dollar in our coffers came from.

I cannot express just how much appreciation I feel for all of you, and for our Club and what we do, and how happy it makes me just to be part of such a fine organization.
This was another shining moment for The Traditional Bowhunters of Georgia.

Thanks again, from the very bottom of my heart.
