P&Y meet and greet Reno
For those planning to attend the Pope and Young banquet in Reno next month, make plans to attend the Bowsite meet and greet. We will meet in a designated room (to be announced) from 3:00 to 5:00 on Friday afternoon, July 16 at the Nugget Casino/Hotel.
This has become a regular can't miss event so let's hear it. Who's going???
Dang....wish I could be there. Have fun, fellas!
Not making convention this year- too many irons in the fire. Hopefully, 2023 on the normal April schedule.
Sorry I will miss, but wishing those attending a great time.
First convention I've missed since retirement.
I wouldn't miss it... gonna be difficult since I stopped drinking... Ed F
I’ll be there. Looking forward to it.
Millie and I will be there.
I'll try to remember to bring the K114 journal in case any Bowsiter would like to see it or make an entry.
That’s great Ed, how many days sober?!? :-)
Yes , this will be my first meet & greet , every year I read about it Tom
Thanks for the Heads-up!
I haven't started yet... just thinking about it. This will be my 11th convention... I think. Ed F
Was great to meet a bunch of BS'ers in Omaha!
Terrible timing to quit drinking Ed.......
I think Ed is just planning on “identifying” as sober ;-)
I wouldn't miss it! See you there Jim, Ed, and Matt.
Here’s hoping you all have safe travels and everyone has a great time. Gonna miss it this year.
I might make it to Reno in time? I'm like Ed & quit drinking awhile back but that could change at anytime! After 5 years I'm just looking for a good excuse!
Gonna wear something lacey to it
I'll be there. Should be a great time as usual.
I will be there as well. Still upset I didn’t make the last one.
Will be there in spirit while my wife and I are hunting in South Africa.
Fun times ahead, looking forward to it!
Kelly and I will be there. Looking forward to it!
Will be arriving in Anchorage about the time you guys start mixing it up. Enjoy, hopefully see you all next time!
I am soooooo bummed to miss this one, but can't pull it off. Have to see a pulmonologist specialist and had to make the first-available appointment for this date back in April. You fellers have a couple for me, and I'll be there in spirit.
I live in Reno, just recently retired and one of the commitments I made was that I’d get more involved in a few hunting and conservation organizations once the corporation stopped sucking my life and energy. So, I’ve joined P&Y and will see you there in a couple of weeks.
If anyone is looking for offsite restaurant or other area recommendations send me a PM with some specifics of what you’re looking for and I’ll do my best to point you in the right direction. There’s a good brewery across the street from the Nugget called Great Basin Brewery.
Also the original owner of the Nugget (formerly known as John Ascauga’s Nugget) John Ascuaga passed away this week at the age of 96 so I’d suspect the current owners will have some specials planned to honor the founder.
I'll be there, looking forward to it!
I’ll be there. I’ve been to 2 conventions in Omaha. Looking forward to it!!!
Won't make this one. The meet and greet was my favorite part of the Omaha convention. Great time!
Becky and I will be there!
Kathy and I will be there......
Next time it is close to PA, I think I will have to attend................just to meet some of these infamous Bowsite characters! ;-)
Was planning on attending in May but can not make the July banquet. I just know you guys will have a great time. I did submit a photo for the trail camera contest. :) My best, Paul
Paul if you are submitting that photo of your hit bull running by with you in the tree in the background, well...no contest!! Fantastic photo.
The event is getting closer every day. You can now look at the auction items on onlinehuntauction.com There are around 60 hunts up for bid, including some really top end hunts. Check it out.
We'll give a toast to those unfortunate souls who can't be with us.
Adrenaline Russ's Link
Rumor has it that Ned was recently seen shopping at the local Victoria Secret store.....
Will be trying to cross the border Monday and if all goes well, we'll see you there. Been allocated booth # 120, so stop by if you get a chance. May need to ask Ned how someone dresses for 100+ degrees....
Our hunt is listed here, hope the link works.
Russ - Adrenaline Outfitters
Hopefully, Ned goes with something low cut, in the new Valo pattern. It will match his eyes….
Your hunt is listed in the 2nd lot of P&Y's auction items.
Got waylaid by work. Gonna miss this one, damnit!
