Well, since Keith Gregerson is the last demo person on Friday, and he requested an hour and a half (at least) I figured we'd wind down about 6- 6:30. A short break, to grab a bottle of water or whatever, maybe eat a burger, and we'll start the round table. So, lets shoot for 7 to start.

Keith gives a great talk, and is quite the presenter. He definately gets his point across.

John, are there bleacher type seating at the demo area or should we bring chairs? These old bones can get tired after a while.

Good question! We have several mobile aluminum bleachers that we'll put in a semi-circle. With that being said, I still welcome and encourage you to bring your own chair, IF that is what you prefer.

We'll cut the grass around the demo area, and we'll just make sure that no one is blocking anyone else's view, and we're good to go.

I will probably have a few of the pop-up sun canopies for a few people to sit under as well.

We'll have water at the concession stands, but feel free to bring your own.

Ok, a couple of questions that seem to keep coming up:

Are dogs allowed? Yes, in the camping part of the fairgrounds, and outside (on a leash) but NOT in the buildings

Is there a charge for entry? Yes, $5 for 18 and over. You'll get a wristband and that's for the 2 days. (Not the banquet) With that you'll get one entry into a drawing for a Ruger 22-250 rifle, that will be drawn for @ 6 PM Saturday evening after the last demo.

Are banquet tickets available now? No, but they can be bought when you get here, along with wristbands for entry. They will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.

Is there Showers/Bathrooms in camping area? Yes, there is.

Can I set up camping on Thursday Night? Yes, you can. The camping area is a grassy spot, fairly large, at the North end of the fairgrounds. The fairgrounds will be charging for the camping spots, NOT us. $5/Night for tent camping, $25/night for camper hook ups. Pay at the fairgrounds office during business hours.

Will there be food available? Yes, from Noon until 7 pm on Friday, and then from 7 a.m. Saturday until 6 p.m. Saturday evening. AND, there are 3-4 restaurants within 1/2 mile. Some within a few hundred yards of NE corner of fairgrounds

Will there be an ATM? Yes, there will be an ATM on site also.

Thanks to all!

John is a leader in this industry and anytime he puts his mind to something he gets it hammered out smooth and straight. Coyote Days should be a winner for sure.
Good luck John and best to you and the family!

We're 3 weeks away from getting set up. Our long-time friend, Forrest Lewis called me from South Dakota, and has agreed to be our auctioneer for our one and only item to be auctioned at the Saturday Night banquet! (A custom made Buckle) A lot of you know Forrest from years past, as he was the announcer and auctioneer at a few of the NTA Westerns in Montana in the 'old days' and is a gifted person in so many ways. Forrest will also be bringing some of his high quality items made from fur. We are very happy to have him on board!

I had a good visit with my long-time friend, Major Boddicker a few days ago. Major will be giving a demo at Coyote Days, and also be part of our Round Table discussion on Friday evening. I asked him to also be a guest speaker at the Saturday evening banquet, and he graciously agreed to do it! Major has been a huge source of information (and humor)for many of us for over 40 years now. I never get tired of his writing, and is a great visitor also. I still use his 'Song Dog' Crit-r-Call, and used it to take 2 coyotes this last week. It's always in my pocket. I sold coyotes to him in 1985, and have had a hundred visits with him, all enjoyable. Having him speak at the first ever 'Coyote Days' banquet is just more icing on the cake. Oh yeah, he says he has n amusing coyote story to share with us at the banquet. I can't wait!
