Guys Rowdy will be updating the list in next day or so. We also need to know how many 16 and under (youth) will be attending as we will have items to present to them. So when you confirm state how many adults/ youth and if you will be staying at RR site. Example:
TJ/wife/1 youth staying at RR

That was the biggest shortcoming that as a newbie was difficult. But it also made it neat. As I saw it I did know what was coming next maybe my past history with technical conferences that had agenda and an accounting for each minute made me expect something different.
Friday Night - Greenhaw told me just to show up at Estill Springs community center. No problem my dad had gone to elementary school there and we had had family reunions there. I felt guilty showing up and eating ( there was no place to pay ) what gives with that. Wade did not explain it just said it was covered. So Friday I meet sat around and eat and talked to many guys from this site. Mr. Dunn, LtElmer, TJ and many others. Neat. Asked what happens next and was told to show up Saturday morning at the same place.
Saturday am showed up and there was another meal. Still could not find a hand or a hat to put money into. I had told Wade that I had a farm that that we could use as a hunting site if needed. He said okay. About 9 am he started dividing people up and you folks go with Burnett, you guys go with Kenneth, started to get worried my name had not been called and then he said "Mater, circle, Otte, Ruger, Louisiana and a couple of other guys I did not know said you guys go with Rick Watkins. The only person I knew was Greenhaw so I did not know what to expect. What a day ! Some of the folks knew each other well. Mater, Ruger and Tangier. Otte and his buddy ( whose name I cannot remember) And Circle and his kids. By the end of the morning I came to the conclusion, that these were a group of good old boys that really shared a love of rabbit hunting. I just ran one of my dogs Tracker. I was stunned at how well the dogs that were just throwed ran together. Tangier little yellow bitch, circle dogs with their cut tails and Ruger & Mater tri & ticked dogs. Otte and his buddy had not brought any dogs but they enjoyed watching and helping Ruger kicking brush. He actually jumped the first rabbit. We broke for lunch and I had to go help my daughter in Nashville move. I think they went back and ate lunch and went hunting somewhere else in the afternoon.
Saturday night I returned to community center some folks we already gone apparently they had had the raffles. There was still food so I ate again. Meet some more folks like Kenneth and Burnett. Some guys had built a roaring fire and people just sat around and talked.
I did not know there was Sunday and I was committed to church so I do not know what happened.
I hope this gives you and idea of what to expect gump. Great chance to meet people and run your dogs with other dogs of all shapes and colors.TJ a piece of paper tacked up with a outline would have helped but I do not think it would have added to my enjoyment. There is no such thing as too much fun.

I have not had the pleasure of going to one of the events but this Lord willing that will change this year. I try to expose my children to different outdoorsman and especially Christians. If you fit into either category and would like to attend this year but can't due to financial stress. If you will PM me on here I can help a few people out either to stay at Rabbit Run or some stay where close. I'm looking forward to meeting some good houndsman.

Tater, That is a very generous offer, I was hoping to make it this year but once again work is getting in the way, along with our other contracted jobs we are doing a major renovation of my son, daughter inlaw and 6 month old grandsons recently purchased home , not enough hours in the day or days in the week, hopefully next year, sure do hate that I cant be there in person to pick up that contender when I win it. Hope you all have a great time as I am sure you will
