I'm really looking forward to this one. Its right down in the mountains and most years the trees are in full glory. The temperatures feel like fall, and sometimes my little heater comes in handy. You can't beat the folks, the feed and the whole event. Y'all come on to the convention and visit a spell. I know you'll like it!

I'll be handing out my new test lure there for anyone who buys a canine lure. It's something that has really worked well here last fall and winter in test sets, and I'll be wanting to see how it does elsewhere. It's labeled as Triple Gland Plus. It has coyote, red fox and bobcat glands in a blend with other goodies. It has brain material in it to help keep it weather resistant.

I'll also have one of dad's fox traps for the auction, This is one of the traps he used when trapping for the state of Virginia working for the dept of health trapping foxes for rabies control in the 60s. It has his name tag on it with the address of when we lived in Southwest VA. It's a Ceres, VA address, which is a short distance from the Bland Convention. It's the only trap in the totes of dad's traps that I found with that name tag on.

Looking forward to it myself. Might have a Dunn Knife to raffle off this time. Might bring my flat top and sizzle up some shrooms for the feed Friday night too.

Looks like there might be some frost on the punkin up there Friday and Saturday morning with forecast lows around 36 degrees. That is gonna be a shock to my system for sho. Gonna have to dig out some warmer clothes. We have not been lower than upper 40s yet.

What a great time! Good folks, good food, great location and beautiful weather made for a super good convention. All vendors I talked with were happy with sales.

Thanks to the folks from District 1 for the work they did to put on another spectacular event. Those who haven't attended this show should make plans to come next year to see what I'm talking about.

Always a good time! Always enjoy visiting with Mr. Bob Newberry and the rest of the gang from D-1. NC is pretty well represented up there too with vendors and attendees!
