We had a really great time at the dinner. Got to meet a few more folks than last year and see again the familiar faces. Richard from Mashambanzou Safaris joined us at our table for dinner. Super nice guy. He shared a lot of interesting info and stories about hunting in Mozambique, and some interesting photos that you won't see just anywhere! We stopped by the booth on Sunday, but no one was there? Must have been on a restroom break. Had a good time visiting with Jacques, Phil and Ruan again at the Hartzview booth. Can't wait to get over to RSA for our hunt with them.

Sorry about the booth being empty when you went by! I left at 11:00 to get checked out of the hotel. I'm sure Richard just stepped away for a moment. If you have any questions or need any info, don't hesitate to contact me! I'll be glad to help out.

Myself, @tarbe, @Wheels, and @ActionBob were the last ones to leave.

And I'm embarrassed to say what time it was, because of the early hour. Y'all will do a much better job in Vegas I'm sure!!!!

Just an idea but I think since many of us probably share the same feelings next time we do this it might be fun to just get everyone to introduce themselves, where they are from etc between the 2nd Drink and the taking of dinner orders.

It's just not possible to make your way through such a crowd shaking hands and introducing yourself to everyone.

I was always so busy guiding this time of year for a couple of decades this was the first time I'd been to DSC in over 20 years and I must say I was incredibly impressed by how many of us from our crowd here made it to the dinner, I thought we were only looking at a crowd of about 25-30 looking at the sign up page!

The entire weekend was great and the most fun I've ever had in Dallas!
I thought it was a great event. I was there two years ago and met several of you, and met more last night. I couldn't around to meeting everyone, but if we keep doing these eventually I will. What a great bunch of folks we have on our site, all dedicated to furthering our mutual addiction! Let's keep these events going!

After this one I think he's probably going to need a new camera.

After spending a few hours with them I am sure you'll have a great time.

Ditto all. Great group of people, and had the conversation not turned to politics, I would likely have had more time to have met more of our group. Great evening. All the very best to all in this new year.


Politics?

OMG...good thing I was not there! I would have been "evicted"! :A Blowup:

I wish I could say the same thing about the bar at the Omni. At least I didn't go to Red River with a few "un-named PH's...lol Then again...maybe if I would have with my camera, I could have been trading pictures for trophy fees!!!!!!

Got 7 hours of sleep myself! ;) Would've been more but then I ran into James back in the lobby..... he mentioned nothing to me about a free hunt....that's crap I think.

Great night at the dinner, it was great to catch up with everyone again, but yes I think we need more room and a bit more time to mingle around.

I bet James learned in Kindergarden (just like me) that if you don't have enought to share with everyone, you have to keep it quiet.

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there

Wow, great response regarding the title of a thread and an amazing site.

I am interested in hearing about your wild lion hunts.

Greetings Mr. Rutledge. My apologies for the latent reply, cell/email prohibited during working hours, apx 72 a week, yikes! I just wanted to thank you for keeping me in mind for possible 577 loads. I actually purchased a few rounds, however, the firearm is still on the fence at this point.
Many Thanks, again. Regards, Dan.
