Today is a sad day for those of us who attend the Annual Wild Game Feed each year at Irvine Lake. The cancellation of this year’s event has left a very large hole in each of our schedules that is hard to fill due to all the restrictions during the pandemic.
Each year I usually get together with some friends the day before the main event and have a mini-feed. Since we see each other only once a year, this is really our only time together, because once we get to the Feed, we are busy making new friends. There was no mini-feed this year. It will be another entire year before we can see each other again--that is, if the restrictions are lifted by then. Right now I can dream.
We all know canceling the Feed was the right thing to do. This virus must be stopped, and sooner is better than later. But still, it has already been a very long year of waiting for the return of the Feed, and now we must wait another long year. On the plus side, that means those in charge of putting it together have another year to improve upon perfection. I hate waiting, but it is always worth the wait.
My calendar is already marked for September 17, 2021.
See you at the Feed!
