I'm going to miss having you here this year Braz and Crawdad.  You're both the kind of people that make this forum, this craft and life in general really enjoyable.  (and I was looking forward to more dried fruit Braz  :whistling:)

 :bigup:  That fruit was GOOD!  Dried apricots, yum!
Very good for you too!  I had lots of extra goodness last year, so good I had to run back to my hotel room and think about how much goodness I had eaten.

Yep, nice words Aaron. And if I can find your address I may just have to send some of that Sunsweet stuff your way.

This year instead of my Dad I'm bringing a friend (username: Robert Ditta) that makes turkey calls that would like to get involved. He's been lurking around the site for a while now and has a lathe but i don't think he has turned too much on it. Maybe after this weekend that will change  :whistling:

Really hating not being able to make it to this years turn-a-thon. Was looking forward to seeing familiar faces again and meeting the new ones. You guys are going to have a blast. Have fun, eat plenty, and make a little saw dust for me. Take plenty of pictures too. Look forward to seeing you all in action!

Exactly what Tyson said ^^ Since going last year I have a desire all year long to make this group get together but work has interfered again. But as of April 1st I will be retired and it can't do it anymore YEEHAW!!

Y'all have a blast and as Tyson said we do require pictures!!

Tyson said it..........I hate I wont be able to make it out to see everyone, you guys enjoy yourselves, take plenty of notes while your there. I'm always inspired after spending time with the call makers that attend these events....good times with good people for sure. :yes:
Of all the things I've lost while call making...its my mind I miss the most.

Yep, I too am going to miss seeing all of the folks attending. I have always had a great time there and when riding the train, I really enjoyed the trip both ways. But alas, health concerns require that i attend some doctor appointments. I sure hate the fact that I'm missing this wonderful event.
