I just looked and I’ve been a member for 10 years last August and not one of you guys congratulated me on reaching that feat?? Joking.

Honestly I really didn’t think about it. I was actually considering this year but it’s over my kids spring break. If we are in town, I will go. I’d like to meet some these folks.

Me too. We've always had conflicts in March. I've planned to go a couple times when it looked like I would have the weekend free, but ended up with conflicts coming up. One of these days....

I don't disagree. I hope to make it one of these years. But I've had the pleasure of meeting a bunch of TBHers through the years at different times and places.....at hunting shows, TBH golf tournament, local small gatherings, TBH Express shipments, random meetings with TBH cap/t-shirt/sticker sightings, "in the neighborhood" pop-ins, Jaspro's funeral, etc.... I even had Burnadell and Mrs. Burnadell stop by my office one time when they were passing through Abilene.

I don't recall ever having a bad experience meeting someone from TBH in person. I've made several friends through the years via TBH, even without having been to Bownanza. But I still hope to make it eventually. I know without a doubt it would be time well spent.

Not gonna happen for me this year though. Just too much other stuff on the calendar again this spring.

If you count lurking I am either right at or past the 10 year mark. I have never attended Bownanza. Like others, I am not a fan of big crowds; I am just not a social butterfly I guess. There are a hand full of TBHers I would like to meet.

BNZA isn't Mardi Gras crazy or HS football game crowd size. There are usually 75-100 TBH'ers accompanied by their spouses and kids. Total crowd size will be 250-300 people spread out between a dozen cooking stations.

Music, ribs, grilled alligator, gumbo, boudin, crawfish, chicken wings, fried fish, onion rings, hush puppies, chili, gorditas, cake, brownies, sweets, pies, fajitas, cookies, throwing washers, laughter, telling lies , guitar pickin' , funny stories, and it's all FREE !! Just show up, rub elbows with new friends, and put a name with a face.

The atmosphere reminds me of a family reunion or youth hunting weekend at the deer lease. I look fwd to BNZA every year and make the 6+ hour drive to spend 24 hrs with my BFF's

pics of the festivities ... https://discussions.texasbowhunter.c...d.php?t=725026

I very rarely drink, and havent been drunk since before I turned 21 ( 23yrs ago ) but I have still gone. The wilder part of the weekend is at the hotels the night before/after. Sure, there are plenty drinking at the event, but I havent seen anyone actually drunk or acting stupid. Of course, I dont go every year, I think I have attended 3. It is a family friendly event.
