Just want to take a moment to tho recognize the ground crew from PA, Rod Bear, Mike Ruperto and their crew made this event the sucess that it was, without the assistance of these guys and gals, I would not want to venture a guess at how it would have gone.

The hotel staff was beyond helpful and the most polite I have ever worked with, no request was ever treated like anything but a priority and responded to with a smile.

But most of all you who attended made it the true sucess it was.

Thank you all

Greg

Just to give everyone an idea on what is involved in making these functions go smoothly, Rod Bear told me that he had been to that hotel EVERY week for the last six months! The preparations for 2010 have already been going on for more than a year AND there has been some discussion about the next two banquets after that!

This was probably the most depressing weekend I've spent in many a year !!!! I MISSED GATHERING FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE LAKE OF THE OSARKS!!! I glad you all had such a great time. My wife and I were pretty droopy around here all weekend. She did talk to some of the gals at the ladies auction though and that helped her get through it.

The first time I attended a PBS Banquet was here in Baltimore and I only went the one Saturday night, but this time I was there for the whole 4 days. Man what an awesome time I had and too be able to rub shoulders with a bunch of fine folks. I really had a great time. And it also made me to realize the amount of work to pull something like this off. Commendations go to all the hard workers that made this gathering possible. I am already looking forward to Nashville, and my wife wants to go with me to nashville after I told her of the great time I had. Makes me proud to be a PBS member. Thanks to all.

Thanks for all your help and donations from Montana

Tony, I am disapointed I didn't get to meet you in person, I saw you but never got the time to catch up to you, let's make sure that does not happen in Nashville.

It should also be mentioned the Thursday night BBQ was a great addition to the weekend's festivities. Many of you may have missed it. I hope to see the BBQ at future gatherings. The relaxed atmosphere was perfect for catching up and meeting new people. Also a special thank you, at-a-boy, and pat on the back to Rodger Rutz for the fine music. He was a one man show that lacked nothing. Thank You Rodger

My 3rd Gathering, wife's 2nd, and my son Connor's (19 months) 1st of what hopefully will be many (he was the little blond boy in camo pants running all over the hotel). What a great time, old friends, new friends, and it was really nice to be able to drive to one of these for a change! I think I blew a major blood vessel in my brain laughing so hard at Uncle Gene's telling of how he met the Dwarf!!! [biglaugh]

Once every two years the good lord puts some of the best people on earth in the same spot. This time it was Pittsburg.

I have been fortunate to have attended all the banquet/conventions since the first one and each is great in some unique way, but this one seemed to return us to our roots and core of what the PBS is all about.

The council, quest speakers (Gene,Barry,Monty excellent job), seminars, hotel staff and mostly the membership was fantastic.

The expansion of the thursday events and BBQ was terrific and one that I hope continues.

It was nice to not think about anything but what was going on for those four days..... Hopefully I will be around to make 12 more.

A special thanks to all those who donate their time, crafts,hunts and talents to make this one great event.

Until we meet again, keep the wind in your face and the PBS in your heart.

For those that may be on the fence about joining give it a try for a year or two and I think you'll be around for a long time.

I have already turned in my resignation for track coaching so hopefully I can finally be in attendance at the next PBS Banquet. It breaks my heart that I've developed some close internet and snail mail relationships with PBS members, but have not been able to attend due to my job.

I've talked to Gene Wensel and he gave a very glowing report on the weekend. I must thank Gene and Barry for offering to bring along, and those in attendance for cleaning out, the supply of my new books I sent. I will have a 1/4-page ad in the next PBS newsletter to help support the organization and offer a chance for others to order, but wanted to thank those of you now for your support of my endeavor.

Always proud to be a PBS member.

Thanks Greg. I also had hoped to meet you as well and shake you hand and chat a bit. I had 2 PBS Members that I had never met walked up to me and introduce them selves. They were Mark Veghwig(not sure if spelling of Mark's last name is correct) and Kevin Bahr, man that made me feel good. Again I had a grand time, and it was also good to see a good number of fellow TBM members from Marylnad that attended. To Nashville it will be.

Bryce, Gene and barry wer'nt even set up all the way when I got my copy of your book and have really been enjoying it, you did a great job. Thanks.
I think in Nashville that the Tradgang members should find someway of putting their Tradgang handle near their nametag I hate to think of all the people I missed out on talking too.
