Annual NoCo Bowsiter holiday gathering
Back by popular demand - our annual northern CO, southern WY holiday soiree! This year it will be at the Hooters near Centerra (Loveland) off I-25 at the Crossroads exit. Dates are either Wednesday December 19th or Thursday the 20th. Please post your preference for the date and we'll go with the majority. Start around 6 pm.
This year we will have name tags for your handle. We'll also do a fun grab-bag gift exchange with bowhunting related stuff. Something new, used, old, vintage or gag.
Hopefully we can get some of you from down south, maybe even from the People's Republic (I don't know if Hooters has charging stations for Priuses, so Jordan, be advised...).
Reply back with preferred date and we'll make it happen!
I just might be able to make the 20th. The 19th is my birthday, so I’m sure the wife has something in store that night.
I would love to make that trip
I'm in for the win either night as we are goose hunting near Wellington both days.
I do have a memorable donation for the drawing as well!!
Can’t wait! Either night works for me since I’ll be recovering from surgery, so work won’t be an issue. It’s fun times for sure!
Darn, I'd like to head north and meet some good people, but I'm headed to Shiloh Ranch on the 20th.
19th would work better for me, but could make the 20th as well
19th is out for me but the 20th I could do. Would love to put faces to names.
Sounds like a fun time . Enjoy. Is Brad aka cnelk the head speaker??
Wish us east coast guys could join you. Hope you have a blast. We should do something like that up here.
Wish i could make it.. I’ll See what u can pull off with fam..
Brad will definitely be "head speaker" for whomever is within earshot!
Have fun, boys....wish I could be there!
I can attend either date.
Now I don’t have to clean up after the party!
I will pass on being the head speaker I’m sure there is more talented people that will assume the position!
Maybe OTCwill can take a bunch of pictures and do a recap. He likes doing those. :-)
I think it will be a good idea if everyone that attends bring $40 And give to Lou.
That way when the bill is paid the extra will be a great tip for the server.
What a better way to surprise someone during the holidays with a very nice tip.
Ante up boys!
40 dollars...leftover tip? Apparently brad has decided this is going to be an alcohol free get together! Lol!
Heard some rumblings about fake racks and baiting issues at that Hooters. You should come to the WI one. We only feed em beer, cheese, and corn. And that would be much closer for me to attend!! Come on, y'all need to take a trip over this way
Some of these fake racks nowadays look and feel just like the real deal! The fine art of “taxidermy” has come a long way!
This will be my first Bowsiter experience should I manscape before attending?
Sounds like fun. Wish I lived in No CO. I'm not the elk hunter you guys are but I sure know how to have fun!
Checking the schedule once I hit the office tonight.
Tobinsghost, there will be a mandatory manscape check, so prep ahead. The unshorn will be forcibly groomed.
Lol Jaquomo “forcibly groomed”.
That pic has to be Photo Shopped! No way those glasses had anything left in them!
Embry just got a new tattoo, can he come with me if he brings his banjo?
lol! Damn Sito. Funny this is the first thread I open and my name is being smeared in shocking fashion. Remember, I'll see you in February. ;)
Does he play the banjo or is he an air banjo kinda guy?
Jaq, be careful cuz some folks might just show up all hippie like looking for a good time!
Neither date is better but will try and come...
The 20th would work for me!
Any chance u can have it in southcentral PA this year? I will make either day work... ;^)
Life has really gotten in the way of fun lately. I’m going to try my best to make it!!!
Rudy Huntography! The Legend.
Far from a legend, Brad! I’m just happy to know salt of the earth guys like you, John, Lou, Paul, Will etc....
Have fun fellas! Some good times you have. Drink one for me!
Looking like the 20th is the day. We'll finalize in a couple days when folks get reengaged after the weekend. Rudy and Ted, sure hope you guys can make it. I still wear my Huntography ballcap!
Also, I think Brad's idea about money in the pot is a great idea. We can order food and beers and don't have to burden those poor, undernourished waifs with keeping track of 20 individual checks. $40 each might be a bit much but we can figure that out.
I have an MRI follow-up on the 20th so that would be tough to make it over by the evening...…
Have a Puff for Medical Purpose for me----------> ha
Good luck, Robb
If only i lived closer !!!
I am in if you don't mind a Southern Wyoming Bowsiter showing up.
David, I sure hope so. Bowboy and Wyobullshooter are coming down so maybe you can carpool with them.
I will be there on the 20th. If we have a gang, you might let Hooters know we are attending. my best, Paul
One year I will make this party. This is bigger than the Emmys/Grammy all together.. You guys have a drink on those of us who can't be there. You guys are the Super Bowhunters.. HaHa.. enjoy
Lou and I have been communicating about the specifics. I already contacted Hooters to let them know there will be a group of us.
Stay tuned for the the official sign up list and the 'key word' to tell Hooters upon arrival.
I can probably make it over
David, PM sent. Look forward to seeing you again!
Wish I weren't in Texas sometimes, I ain't ever had a Colorado hangover :-)
Just confirmed with Hooters. We are all set for the covered patio - Non-smoking - 6pm
Our server will be Madeline [recommended by manager] Let's be sure to make her holiday special with a nice tip!
Just mention 'Bowsite Party' upon arrival.
Dont forget a 'White Elk' grab bag gift to share if you want.
"Let's be sure to make her holiday special with a nice tip!"
Lol! Surely that shouldn't be too difficult, right? ;)
Is it to late to get in on this?
