Big Horn Sportsmen’s Show 2017

Big Horn Sportsmen’s Show a Big Success

If you didn’t have a chance to make it to the Big Horn Show this year and to see all of our members ”in action” teaching the kids to tie flies, you missed a lot of fun. Everyone did a fantastic job and all the kids and parents really appreciated their efforts. Our new booth location proved successful at attracting a lot more attention and our volunteers responded with a great effort to entertain and teach our young visitors. This was our best show ever thanks to their efforts. Not only did the kids have a good time but a lot of our guys said they enjoyed the opportunity to spend time with other club members getting to know them better. It especially was nice to see a lot of returning kids, some who have been back for several years now and never seem to get enough.

Club members who participated this year were: Bob Schmitt, Lee Funkhouser, Jon Bowne, Lowell Tveit, Gordon Olson, Rick Ripley, Leonard Gross, Dan Lobb, Stephen Aspinwall, Randy Shaber, Skip Cavanaugh, Bob Johnson, Jerry McBride, Neal Beechinor, Phil Beck, Bryan Harman, Bruce Morgan, David Lohman, Larry Ray. Ray Kranches, Leon Buckles and Jim Athearn. A special thanks to Phil, Lowell, Larry and Leon for helping me set up and take down the booth and to Bill Papesh and Tom May for supplying all the hats we were able to give the kids.

We’ll be back same time, same place next year so please mark your calendars.
