First of all, I want to start off with a BIG THANKS to Ken Alvey of LEMTA for making the boat show and our involvement there possible. Also, to WKYC and Inside the Great Outdoors radio for everything. I think between us all, we got the "outdoors" word out. Secondly, and maybe just as importantly, all the folks who volunteered their time to help out at the booth. I really appreciate you giving the time to give a little back. THANK YOU. Third, thanks to everyone who stopped by the booth and said HELLO. It was good to see a lot of new faces, and to see lots of old ones too! LOL. I did notice something interesting... The first weekend, when things were still "warm", most everyone wanted to talk walleye, steelie, or other open water fishing... As the week went on and temps dropped, the discussion went hardwater! Sort of neat... Thanks to you all for all the kind words and positive feedback about OGF. I'll say it again, it's all of you guys that make this place special, and I really appreciate that. Fourth, I have to selfishly thank one person who spent two days with me at the booth. My son Nick. Well, he started at our booth, but when he saw the OSU/Sea Grant folks had a crawler harness tying station set up for kids, he sort of went a little nuts. He tied up several harnesses, and then was helping other kids out by tying hooks on lines so they could build their own. Yesterday, he divided his time between that and drawing pictures of lures and a potential tattoo design of a walleye... He's still working on that one Kelly! LOL!!! We ended the day at The Brewkettle, watching football and eating BBQ (the ribs were GREAT). An end to a great boat show weekend.
