If grown men are allowed to cry, now is the time. The 2015 Wild Game Feed is over, and it is not coming back for a whole long, long year. The food is gone, the beer is gone, the cigars are ashes and stubs, the prizes have found homes, and the exhibits are packed away. The park is clean and ready for the next group to use. I’ve experienced this nearly twenty times and it never gets easier. But like it or not, the waiting now begins for the 2016 Annual Wild Game Feed.
As usual there were too many friends and not enough time. Too much food and not enough capacity. Too much beer and, well, uh, not enough, uh, time. You get it—one day just isn’t long enough. Maybe that’s the thing that keeps us wanting more.
So now we start the countdown to next year. Now the organizers try to exceed what they just did. And we will let them do what is necessary to make the next Feed even better than ever. From my personal past experience, the organizers will succeed.
Thank you to the members of the Annual Wild Game Feed. You give us a great time, and you provide help to many charities. Your hard work doesn’t go unnoticed or unappreciated. Thank you for letting us participate in the festivities and giving us an opportunity to contribute to your worthwhile causes.
8,760 long slow hours to go and counting down.
