From all the feedback I'm getting, it seems the Reelfoot Festival was one of the best shows in years. Thanks to everyone that showed support and attended. Special mention must go out to our very own Mark Warmath, Rob Hurt, Billy Hays and Brian Byers. We are so grateful for your professionalism and dedication. Your efforts helped make this a real success, and I'm confident it will be even bigger next year!
Our New Member Drive Contest ended October 15th
. Congratulations to Bob Burger (Mount Vernon, OH) for winning the hand-carved Byers call for the new member drawing. And congrats also to Ken Hubbard (Evansville, IL) for winning the referring member call. We signed up 30 NEW MEMBERS during this contest. Based on the success of this, we will certainly sponsor a similar contest and drawing in the years to come.
The next big event on the calendar is the "79th
Annual Championship Duck Calling Contest and Wings Over the Prairie Festival" in Stuttgart, AR, November 28-29…see the banner here on our home page, or go to www.stuttgartarkansas.org
for more info. If you can make it, look for our banner at the booth of Mike Lewis. Thanks for all you do and for "flying our flag," Mike!
In closing, hunting seasons are under way all across the country. Many of you have already made some wonderful memories on your favorite marsh, beaver pond, deer stand, ground blind or big water. Be safe, keep the tradition alive and don't stop going back into nature!
All the best,
