Everyone! On May 26, 2014, I posted something about the 46th Annual Wild Game Feed. Take a look.
The 2013 Annual Wild Game Feed at Irvine Lake is on its way!! My ticket order form has arrived, and it’s already filled out, stuffed in an envelope, stamped, and in the mail. This year I plan to show up early, stay late, and have a truckload of fun—just like I do every year.
While I don’t live just for the Wild Game Feed, I do start looking forward to it about 364 days in advance. It’s held on the third Friday of September each year (this year it is September 20, 2013), and by the second Friday of September each year, I’ve already loaded the car with the things I plan to bring (shelter, big mug, chairs, etc.). Chances are the night before The Feed, I’ll just nap if I sleep at all.
Over the years I’ve developed many WGF friends. I don’t know the names of many of them, but I know their faces, and we will re-bond for another day. The one thing that stands out to me is the camaraderie of these men (sorry ladies, this is a stag event). Every type and background of man is represented in the attendance, but we are just a band of brothers. A big band of brothers. Some 1200 or more brothers. And on the day of the feed, we are all equal. I like this. On this day we will eat, drink, smoke cigars, play games, share stories, and make plans to meet again next year.
The Annual Wild Game Feed is more than just an outing or a gathering of men. It is also a fundraiser for charities. Many dollars are raised each year to support a number of major and minor organizations providing help for others, and for this reason alone I support the WGF. The rest is just bonus.
Tickets are limited and invitations are many. Don’t hesitate or they may be sold out.
