Gary as usual you put on a super event, I think each year they get better. Bob and Mark you guys were great, thank you for all the help. Toms Cabin put on a fantastic turkey dinner with ALL the fix-ins, if you did not get enough, that was your fault. All of you that missed the event all I can say is BE THERE NEXT YEAR and enjoy a competition that is done to the 9s. Thank you to all of the people that entered, you guys make it so Gary can do this each year. Northwest Nationals is an event that will be around for many years to come, so we look forward to meeting more coyote callers in the years to come, and seeing the same old faces, this is a fantastic group of competitors and fun to be around. Thank You. Loren

I would like to say, I was just doing my job. I was just picking up the slack while you were taking care of Connie, during her ordeal.
I just want this contest to be the best it can be. And you are right, I feel that each year it does get better. And I want to make sure that it continues to grow and get better each year, whether it is here or it is in another location.
It is a labor of love - I do it for all those that wish to compete in the contest, and be involved with the club.
I would like to give a huge "Thank You!" to everyone that came out and participated in the 3rd Annual NNCCC, without you there wouldn't be a competition like this.
I would also like to send a heart felt "Thank You!" to Loren, without him we wouldn't be here. You give me too much credit!
To Bob! Dude You Da Man! Thank You for all you have done to move this club forward. I hope I can count on you for sometime to come! And Thank You for becoming such a good friend.
Mark Rigel - Thank You for helping with the NNCCC weigh-in - I now this was the first time of helping or being active in the club, or being at a competition - I figured I would help get your feet wet right off the bat, with helping with the weigh-in. I hope I didn't dump to much on you all at once!?!?!?! You did a great job. Thank You!
My biggest Thank You and a huge hug goes out to Lillie Payne - the owner of Tom's Cabin Cafe for catering the 3rd Annual Northwest Nationals. You did us a great dinner! Everyone really liked it very much - 2 or 3 plates full - that says alot. I hope that we can have you cater for us again next year???????
Eventhough we had very little sponsor help this year, I think we had a great time, and it seemed that everyone had a great time. With HIGH Hopes, maybe next year we will have more sponsors come on board.
My hope is? that all of you will read this, and look at all the pictures, realize that you really did miss a great time - and next year you will contact us, send in your pre-registration, and be involved with the contest & the club!

What fun!!! Even though Tim and I had a tough hunt, we enjoyed the contest. I was SOOOOO excited to win "little dog"!! Some of you do not appreciate how difficult it is to hit a 12.4 # dog at 204 yards!!! It is like shooting a pop can! HAHA! What a great club we have! Gary (boss) Thanks for all you do! Win, lose or draw, I love this stuff!!!! Looking forward to the next one! Nick
