Sorry to sound like a broken record here guys, but allow a proud pappa to brag. Again.

This past Saturday was the annual Indiana Bowhunters Association (IBA) awards banquet; my family attended as usual. MR James is always there, and there's always a celebrity speaker, good food, contests, siminars, auctions, lots of fun.

The highlight of the evening came just after supper when the awards ceremony began. I nominated my son Case a few months ago and didn't really think anything more about it. Much. Anyway, shortly after we arrived Saturday morning on of the board members pulled me aside and told me that Case was to be honored this year as the Youth Sportsman of the Year. Well, I can tell you it was difficult for me to keep quiet about it and to hold in my emotions.

Anyway, they put his name and picture up on the big screen and in front of several hundred attendees - Hoosier bowhunters from all over the state and some from out of state - my boy was honored and awarded a very nice plaque, which now graces our living room.

Gotta tell ya boys, it gets a poppa right in the ticker.

First, what in the heck are you apologising for????? If you didn't brag on your child when they do good then you'd be neglecting your job as a parent!Posted Image I don't care how old they are either, they never outgrow being your child. Nowwww, that out of the way, a great big congrats to both you and Case!Posted Image Posted Image

That is sure something to brag about Congratultions to Case and to you as he obviously had a great teacher.
