Thanks to Harmony, Council, their understanding families and our  PBS family for making this recently wrapped up Gathering a huge success!  There were so many people to see, meet, get reacquainted with, etc. that I'm afraid I missed a few.  I couldn't believe the quality and amount of donations for the various auctions and raffles!  Amazing stuff!  The diverse subjects and speaker of the seminars was excellent, truly something for everyone.  Brian Burkhardt and Jim Eeckhout did a great job on their Friday night keynote presentation (despite a couple of minor techie glitches) and to Don Thomas for his Saturday evening presentation, especially all he and his family have been through this past year!  Considering the sketchy times we're living in, I'm so thankful that we were able to get our Gathering in under the wire of subsequent cancellations and travel restrictions, etc.  Thank you, Council, outstanding job!

I think it was the best banquet I have attended, since my first one in 2000 in St Louis.  So glad that we scheduled it a week earlier than usual, otherwise we would most likely have had to cancel.  Friday the 13th was scary for Council with all the uncertainty, but it all worked out due to the “Let’s do this!” attitude from our awesome members!

they just seem to get better and better. This location with the Black Widow tour and the Archery Hall Of Fame and the keynote speakers made this a banquet that will be tough to beat!!

So sorry to miss it.  The first I have missed since 1996.  My hospital is very busy with Corona Virus issues and I simply was unable to join you.  Tough to think its a long 2 years until the next one.  Glad it was fantastic and I have seen some of the videos so I could enjoy variously.

A Great gathering for sure!! A tip of the cap to the working council, speakers, and everyone who made this happen. I too think we were blessed to get this pulled off under the restrictions on gatherings, travel etc...now happening! The hotel, food, speakers, etc...were all first class. A very affordable trip.Thank you again to all!!

For you guys in the east and northeast, something to consider is attending the OYG next year.  Tim Denial hosted it in NW PA last summer and it was like a mini Banquet, with excellent auction items, great food, seminars, camping with a log cabin available, tomahawk throwing, and a great archery course.  I think Tim said he is planning to host it again in 2021.

Ideally we can copy that model and have multiple OYG’s in the various regions.  If anybody in the other regions has access to a facility or lease or property, and is interested in hosting one in 2021, contact me and let’s make it happen!

My wife never heard me talk so much...which says a lot about the banquet and quality of people in this organization. The PBS staff and members made this happen...it was great.    Hope everyone made it home safe.

Thank you all..

Thanks to all of you who came and made this such a success!    It was really cool to see and hear so many folks talking to new friends and planning hunts and that is what it is all about.   And big thanks to those who brought so many great donations.   We had so much great stuff it was hard to figure out what to try to buy.
