    I want to say thank-you to everyone who came out to our Member Appreciation Outing yesterday!

    Linda and Causeway Bait & Tackle did a stellar job of hosting us again.
    Thank-you so much Linda. All of the dishes you personally prepared were great. :) !% :B

    The weather turned out to be beautiful after the rain passed through Friday.

    Saturday was a great time to meet and talk with new members, and see and talk to old friends/members again! !% :B
    There were just too many of you to try to list! :D :B :

    And the food! I couldn't get a chance to try all of the different dishes that were there, I got too full. :D

    I also want to especially thank everyone who helped out with the kids and the games we had for them.

    Christie, Connie, Woody, you guys were great! Thank-you so much for your help! I really enjoyed meeting all of you!

    rattletraprex and wave warrior- thank-you for bringing your own personal family games to share! They were very much enjoyed! !% :B

    If anyone has some pics from yesterday, please post them here if you can!

  2. Well I'm 0 for 3. I had just joined and didn't really know about it in 05, was in Raystown Lake last year, and had to take care of my youngest daughter Alex who had her tonsils out Friday this year. Hope everyone had a great time and maybe next year for me.

  3. It was a great time. The minnow races were entertaning too. I also got to talk with alot of the guys and had a blast, And i got a 9" gill off of the docks. :)
  4. Me and Huntibull thought everyone would still be hanging around so we stayed on the water until about 6. We came in and no one was there! Well except a few people.
  5. I want to give out a very big thanks out to Linda and the Causeway Crew for having all of us again as guest. Also, to Poochies for the excellent steak dinner on Friday night and breakfast Saturday morning. It great meeting alot of old faces and some new ones (Justin S, Christie). Since I won the drift sock, I guess I'll have to find a boat I wished that I could have stayed one more night and got to witness the big bon fire, but I had to be at work today at 7am in Columbus. When I get home tonight, I'll try to post some pictures I took.

  6. Well just got home from another great outing! Food was excellent and the people were great. Prizes were nice too! Fishing wasn't so hot though but the weather was perfect after the blast Friday. Hope the kids enjoyed the games,all the games came home in perfect condition so want to thank the kids and those who helped them. The minnow races were a hoot! The bonfire was great also,liked the added touch Capt. Musky gave it! Just have to remember to camp up wind of it next time cause an ember landed on Reeldirty1's tent and burned through a pair of jeans and his air mattress.Took a few pics but need a new camera.Who were the one's camping beside us? She's the one with the camera in pic. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Nick, I wondered what happened to you! ;)
  8. It was a great day all the way around. Beautiful weather, great food, met some great people, even caught a few fish! Who could ask for anything more?

    Finally met several face to face that I had talked with online and on the phone. A special surprise for me was to meet Sonia Wolf, the coordinator for the OHio DOW Hunter Ed program. Great to meet and talk with you finally. Hope all enjoyed themselves and am glad we can have outings such as this.

  11. We had a blast! I posted my thank you's in a diff topic but it can not be said enough...Thank you! Here are some pics from the minnow race. The kids loved the minnow race..ok us adults loved it too!.

    There was so much food I too did not get to sample it all. I did get to try chipawas (sp) walleye chowder and it was delicious!!!

    Linda and her crew were fabulous! Linda it was a pleasure meetin you and you are an inspiration to me. Please tell Siera hi for us. She was so kind to my girls. And please pass onto bret that Allie says HI! She has not stopped talking about him for 1 second. He is such a good kid.

    We will definately attend next year. we won some great door prizes. and TY Linda for the poles. The kids are excited and can't wait to use them.

    Ruminator it was a pleasure mtg you and your wife. Big Daddy it was nice to meet you as well. Justin S and Christie it was nice mtg you and my girls say HI!

    I have to tell the Woody Mcdonald story and sorry christie I have to tell the hamburger story, LOL! Friday night about 10:30pm I wanted mcdonalds so I made woody drive us to find one. When we got there we were so tired from all the fun that woody goes to the drive up window, gives the girl the money then drives off. as we go to leave I look at him and say "where's the food?" He realizes what he did and goes back through the drive through. The girl taking the order was so confused she had her manager give us the food, LOL! so I thought that was funny till I got back to camp and heard about Christie's mishap. Justin said he was hunrgy so he had christie fix him a burger. she did. As he's eating it he said man this has some tough lettuce on it. Guess what it wasn't lettuce it was the slips of paper that divide the meat. LOL! Now I did not feel so bad about woody and the mcdonalds drive off. LOL! You guys are so much fun. glad we met you.

    Hope to meet more people. If ya missed it this year make sure you come next year.

  14. TheSonicMarauder

    TheSonicMarauder Yes i slept on the couch

    i had a blast met some new people who were really cool as well as ones i met last year... i had a great time.... the couch was cold, but comfy lol although i do wish i heard dale say he had a spare tent DOH! lol.. even my constant battle with trying to get my truck started couldnt keep me from having an awesome time. thanx for the beer and the push brandon.... now get off the phone, your gonna fry yer brain as much as you talk on that thing lol

    met little35 and he was nice enough to take me out on his niiiiiice boat that purred like a quiet kitten where i caught my first ever walleye BONUS! :D a super nice guy and fun to bs with while fishing. VE ARE ZEE GERRRRMANS ZEE PORSCHE CAYENNE IZ HAUT LIKE ZEE PEPPER [​IMG]

    also hangin out with justin s., christie and bigfoot after they came back from pooches and were all totally lit.... it was pretty funny lol.. although i didnt think christies burgers were all that bad... i had them on saturday.... although i opted for no "Pre rigged white lettuce" ;)... they were just as fun sober as they are hammered and good people nonetheless

    Brandon, dale, Jim(rumi), Carl, and everyone else who help put this thing on...... I HAD A BLAST and i loved hanging out with you guys and bsing and helpin out, eventhough i felt like i shouldve helped more... ill try to make it up at hawgs fest

    Gene, Steelhead bob, wave warrior, rattletrap rex, snag and everyone else i got to meet and hang out with this weekend.... it was good meeting you and hangin out with everyone

    i also got to meet fishinful and steelhead1 who are co workers with my mom and got to hear horror stories of how my mom and her workers like to lose keys and passcards lol

    speaking of losing keys by any chance did anyone just so happen to find a single chrysler key with a key fob laying around... i had it before i left to go to the outing on friday and im 99% sure i left it on the table here at home but we've turned this house upside down and are unable to find it so i figured id ask on here just to make sure...... hopefully is wasnt in the couch i slept on before yall through it in the fire :eek: :eek: its really no biggy i told mom id buy her a new fob and key if we couldnt find it but still i thought id ask

    and last definately not least..... THANX LINDA AND THE REST OF THE CAUSEWAY CREW..... thanx again for hosting the event again.... and letting me borrow the couch by the fire :eek: i still wish you werent selling the store tho :( it wont be the same without you and the crews presence... but ya gotta do what ya gotta do... you have a good group of people there.... everyone is ready to assist you and where else can you go to find pretty young ladies who know a ton about fishing tackle... lol hopefully the new owners are just as good of people as you are linda.... eventhough we all know yer one of a kind :) thanx again

    Suggestion for next year:
    Minnow Racing Tournament.... 3 classes: stock(small minnows), Pro Stock(medium minnows) and Top Fuel(them big ole shiners that linda has) and each racer has to choose his/her minnow and keep it alive in an aerated bucket till they are knocked out.... that would be awesome! lol

    Hahaha nice pics Jim! Can't wait to pay that back someday...I'll be gunnin (not tv style!) for you to be at the Hawg Fest :D

    Great time for sure. Really cool to meet and hang out with everyone face to face...nice change from all the typin. Steelheadbob and I made WAY (not really) too many trips to the bait shop, and I even managed to push Sonic's truck in the fray. I heard today that "shots were fired", and I'm bummed I missed out on em.

    Thanks to Linda and the girls for their hospitality once again. The folks at Pooches were sweet, and you all make us feel right at home.

    Peple of the Perch absolutely blew me away with those bass plaques...great stuff man, and much appreciated. John and Angie always bring a smile to my face (insert "the sign" here) and it was my pleasure woopin his tail in the minnow race. I just wish Buck would've broke out that sooner, or added some leeches :D

    To everyone who attended and helped with the event, a HUGE personal thanks for reminding me why I enjoy this stuff so much. OGF members ROCK.
