This is Bownanza XVI, correct?

If I recall, Mr. Middleton pledged to pump new life into this event after last year's successful but less attended event.

I think this needs at least one sticky discussion thread in around the campfire section so we can get more eyes on the event. Thoughts?

There's a zillion daily posters who never enjoy the handshakes and solid footing of Veteran's Park concrete under their boots.

Mark your calendars for March 17th. I'm still working on details, but looks like that is the date that we will be at the American Pavilion in College Station!

I'll share more info as I get it.

Yes, the 17th. I have the park locked in place and signed a contract for rooms, but it won’t be in their system ready for reservations until sometime Monday. I will update when that is in place.

9 weeks and counting!

Address to park please. First timers here, and are looking at hotel options that are dog friendly.

It might be better to show you instead of tell you.

Check out last year's forum http://discussions.texasbowhunter.co...splay.php?f=61

But to sum it up - food, fun, and fellowship with the TexasBowhunter.com members.

We will try and make our first this year.
Got an Aggie graduating in May so have a place to stay.

Do we sign up to attend, Walk-on or buy a ticket?

Looking forward to it.

The only thing you need to do is walk over to Team Grumpy Old Farts, walk all over their grass, getting them riled up and you are in.. Then do what Todd says above..

Larry has been working on the logo....
Every year I think we have the best one yet....this year is no different. I'll just say....it's (to quote Heath)....ALLSOME!!!

I'll share as soon as I have all the details worked out on shirt we are looking at and make sure Larry is on the final draft (Hopefully tomorrow).

It's a WINNER, for sure!
