    Everyone was too darn busy to get on here and let you know.
    The show is over in about 6 minutes.
    Sun is down.


    This is a safe place to hide from PH's. At least that is what I heard. Especially late at night.

    I'll post more when I get back home.

    Night all.

    AH folks I met: Jerome and his wife, 35bore, spike, divernhunter, TAP, James Jeffery, mtgoat, buffbuster, a few others whose AH monikers I can't remember and this big tall Canuck named Brickburn.

    Show season is over and time to say goodbye to our African friends which is a bummer to be sure, but hunting report season is just around the corner! No reports from me this year, but 2015........

    I had a chance to see my friends Phil and Kate de Kock at the local show here in WA a couple of weeks ago. My boy and I will be hunting with them in June at Bosbok Safaris, Limpopo.

    It was great meeting everybody at the Friday get-together- good to put a face to the names.
    Many thanks to Jerome for putting it on.
    Don't care much for Vegas but my wife and I enjoyed the SCI show.
    We are back in (northern) Canada at -25 C. Tickets will be bought within a couple of weeks for the July safari.

    It was great to meet so many of you at the AH Get together.
    Also, before and after the get together. (Some parties start earlier and go later apparently.)

    There is never enough time to speak for as long or as in depth as I want to. My apologies for that.

    To the many spouses that put up with this obsession, addiction we all have. Thanks.
    Chief amongst those is Jerome's dear bride. Mrs J.

    Amazing isn't it, how so many people can be afflicted with the exact same problem?

    Jerome you do throw a mean party.
    THANK YOU! It was a blast.

    (Sorry I could not stay for the dancing. Midnight in Vegas is early, but.....)

    I was the late arrival to the get together, my fault. Sorry I missed so many of you but it was great meeting those of you that I did. Was great time, and great fun. Ran into a fair number of folks from the forum elsewhere. And some of you found out that my wife does exist, even if it was in a semi-drunken form....

    well I missed everyone there, wish I had of been able to make it but the wife and her cousin bought tickets to some show so it was either the show or the party, and since she allows me to hunt and make in her mind silly purchases for hunting, I thought it best I keep her happy
    Happy wife = happy life

    What a slogan for a bar: DRINK PLAY DISCOVER

    I never realized how well they understood PH's in Las Vegas.

    Sounds like you mad the right choice there. I wish I could have made it. Had to leave Friday morning. Already planning for next year though and I will not miss the AH get together next year. Did have a great time at the show though.
