We had 30 members at our December Christmas party meeting.  We had alot of great food and everyone enjoyed the feast!  Awards were given and the ultimate Hunter of the Year Award went to Charley Coskey.   I believe Charley ultimately received 6 different plaques for all of his awards.  Michael Heim received the Find of the Year award.  Congratulations to all of our winners.  Please see the pictures of the winners below.  

After the awards ceremony, everyone had a good time with the Santa gift exchange.  It's always interesting to see who ultimately winds up with what.  We are wishing everyone to have a happy holiday season and please be safe.

The word "curfew" comes from the French phrase "couvre-feu", which means "cover the fire". It was used to describe the time of blowing out all lamps and candles. It was later adopted into Middle English as “curfeu" which later became the modern "curfew". In the early American colonies homes had no real fireplaces so a fire was built in the center of the room. In order to make sure a fire did not get out of control during the night it was required that, by an agreed upon time, all fires would be covered with a clay pot called-a “curfew".
