It was just finalized Wednesday afternoon – we have added one final show to this year’s schedule.
We attended “Deer Widow’s Weekend” in Birch Run, Michigan for several years on the second weekend in November – but last year it was moved up a week, and the first weekend in November is also the first weekend of the Ohio State Football Playoffs. I know that is of little interest to most of you – but I have been the football announcer at my local high school for the past 35 years and the first playoff round is played on the home fields of the higher ranked teams (subsequent rounds are at neutral sites). I missed a playoff game for a show in 1999 – and spent the entire evening on a cell phone with a friend in the stands getting updates while listening to a friend announcing the game in the background. I was miserable – and vowed never to miss the opportunity again.
However, two losses in the past four weeks have made a home game impossible – so we checked earlier this week and the nice folks in Birch Run were able to accommodate us. And better still, our good friend Sue Nelson will be at the demo table. Therefore . . .
Spread the word – get a carload together – and join us one final time in 2014!
