Thanks to everyHog who made the 40th Trip awesome! You guys rock.

It is with great sadness that I remove Paul Ducharme from the roster. Rest in Peace, Paulie. As per his request, we will be burying him in the River on the Trip this year by launching his ashes from a new HogTek. A fitting farewell for a loved Hog.

I know you guys look forward to the Letter, but I just haven't had time to do it. Sorryness, Shit Happens.

  • Twenty Hogs and no Rookies attended in '13. Three Hogs were Re-Rookies <evil grin>.
  • Club dues will remain at $120 for at least this year. Everybody is paid up through '13.
  • Wednesday administrative day will again be Family Camping exit day. Please make them go ontime.
  • Only Re-Rookies in '13, and it was the first ever Re-Rookie of the Year. Good job Chris C.
  • Mark C. earned his 20th Year Survival Star. Paul B. and Little Timmy T. earned their 10th, and Ken Doll got his 5th! Congrats!
  • Nate won Blown Bladder, and still owes the fine. Paul B won golf. Can't memba the other tourneys, but please tell me.
