Well, they got the state proclimation and Ulcer Acres will be going down to Benton,KY. We are going most of the way Thursday night and will be there first thing Friday. Podge of Moonswiners will be there also. So if anyone is down there make sure and stop by. We will have the carp flying proudly for the first time of the year. Stop by at 8:30 am and 11:00 for the traditional good luck shot of Gentleman Jack. We will have a Clonesicle made up and ready to go. Make sure and say hi. It will be the first outing for the Ol Hickory CTO with the new convection fan.

You better practice before the LP Que. Going to be the toughest crowd of the year, at least that is what is shaping up.

My theory is if your going to get beat might as well ge beat by the best. Or at least have them try. We are getting the CTO speed tuned in and she is ready for the big boys.

We are just competing. Kind of trying to ge the dust blown off everything and see what we need to do. Make sure and stop by and say hi. Hopefully we will have our team sign up. But if not we are a 40ft Fifth wheel toy hauler with a carp on a pole about 15 feet up in the air.

Just a reality check - Benton tater fest is a different gathering than the one in Murray on the 30 & 31st?

The contest is now sold out.

I think I might stop by for one of those toasts? Am I invited as well? Who will be leading it? And the better question is will you be passing off the last line of the toast or will you be doing it? :-P

sometime you need to explain the "carp" moniker over here for these guys....

03-19-2007, 12:32 PM
Randy produly wears the Carp moniker as much as the Smack Talk champion belt... Let's just say it relates to where the fish carp eat... They are generally refered to as "bottom fedders"... Hence the name for Randy...

Thanks Scottie, I was actually going to tell them some kind of story like the Carp is worshipped as some one who is full of knowledge and wisdom and is a mighty fish in the rivers. Not that is a bottom feeder which some would and if it were possible I would be. But not all of our team.

Well you are right there too. In Asia, the carp is a worshipped fish and held in high regards... Another reason for your name... Think of Koi... They are the fish of royalty...
