Theirs is earlier than ours. Paul usually posts things like this at the top about 2 weeks before the event. While D9 is perceived to be "special" now, D5 will be "special" soon enough. Anything D5 and D9 does is truly "special", eh, Patrice?

You got that right, Moosey!

For the rest of you who don't know, D5 and D9 are in cahoots on these things. What you need to do, is come to our D9 rendezvous on June 3rd, and then after you recover and rest up from ours, you will be ready to go to the D5 rendezvous on June 24th! What a way to plan your month of June!!!

Nittany, we have our rendezvous in 2 weeks, so Paul gave us "the glue" now. Moosey will get the glue for D5 when their rendezvous is 2 weeks away. In the meantime, his buddies will keep him at the top! That includes me! grin

Can we get raffle tickets in advance from someplace in case you can't make it? Wait, maybe I should ask if we need to be present to win first?

There is a Route 35 that goes by my place if I got on that sucker and went West would that eventually get me to your convention.

Not real sure. The big convention in Iowa might hit us but we will have some for sure. I'm setting up with a ton of hunting, fishing, and trapping antiques. Even picked up a lot more this weekend!

No, I don't believe I do. I try to stay away from paper items. More axes, hatchets, knives, calls, lanterns, and other stuff that is pretty durable for packing, unpacking, and some of the grubby little hands that tend to grab, pull, and tear grin

Forgot to mention antique duck and goose decoys, too!

Sounds to me like the Great Black Otter is cleaning out his garage! These antique duck decoys gotta be those old fiber decoys he blew the heads off of years ago and didn't have the heart to part with 'em.

Naaaah! Everybody knows I never sell a decoy I might have a use for some day. I even have a pile of the big, pre-LL Bean cork Coastal Magnum Mallards I've been trying to sell at gun shows. They just might wind up in the rig at this point!

About 20 years ago my wife and I were going through the decoys in the garage. I told her I had 400-500...then a buddy of mine brought back a diver rig of 10 dozen Bluebills...

Added a bunch more since then, too!

The fish are always biting over here and the Rondt is being held right across the road from a landing that gives access to the north end of Lake Onalaska and the confluence of the Black and Mississippi Rivers.

Thanks to D9 from D5!

Hey, Moosey! I have always sent a PM to Paul and asked to be glued to the top when I have an event in 2 weeks or less. I'll bet if you send a PM and talk nice, Paul will give you some glue! grin

Moosey, if you see a couple of D9 members skulking around be afraid, if you do not see them, be very very afraid.
One has frizzy blond hair, the other one does not.

Yeah, geez, I have a week to worry about what the frizzy blonde, and one that is not, from the infamous D9 Black Sheep are going to be up to! Hopefully having a good time!

Things are all falling into place nicely! All we need to arrange now is good weather. Maybe I should PM Paul about that! I'd bet he has some pull with that, too!

Hope to see you there!

It'll be good to see you! I will be among T-Man royalty with you guys and Muskrat!

Just got a call from a buddy who is setting up there. He picked up a pile of old traps with tags from the 20's to the 50's.

Well, we're home from the D5 Rendezvous! What a nice event full of nice people! They had my kind of weather too. Low 60's!!! What a treat. I got to visit with some buddies and did a little shopping too ...

I am now the proud owner of an ulu made by Moosetrot! I have needed one for a long time and I was happy to see he brought them along. I have cooking plans for that baby. I'll be posting some cool stuff with that!

Great event and great people! Thanks for a wonderful welcome, D5ers! grin

Great to see you there, Patrice and Zim!!!! I just may need to pay a visit to D9 next year! It really was a good time and the vendors and tailgaters said they all did well. The weather...and company...were spectacular.

Good to see Muskrat back on his home turf and thanks loads for the demo. As always, great to spend time with Macthediver. Didn't get much time to talk to everyone who came.

We'll see where D5 lands next year!

Thanks for putting this on top so long, Paul! We can let 'er die now.

Sure glad you had a good time Moosetrot. I almost made the trip as I had a buddy that wanted to look at a truck in Viroqua. Only issue was it was my wife's birthday so I stayed home. Maybe next year.

Woulda been good to meet you! Not set in stone yet where the D5 Rondy will be next year. At our meeting a committee formed to take a look around at other options. Kind of nice for me keeping it where it is....about a block from my house! Been a good couple years there and I would not mind if it would stay.

Will let everyone know when the decision is made.

Moosetrot and the guys did a great job. My hats off to them.
Always good to see everyone and of course Patrice and Zim showing up made it even better..D9 gets around? or rocks around? lol!
Guess I didn't win any thing in the raffle drawing or at least haven't heard yet?? Snuck out early before they drew and went to the cousins wedding reception.

Great to see you all!
