Photos & Report of 2002 Christmas Parade & Party

For the first time ever, the BCSRC had an entry in the Holiday Parade. The parade started out on the campus of Texas A&M University and proceeded north down Texas Ave. into Bryan. The participants in the parade were: Chris & Dalene Barnes, Dale, Cindi & Cullen Tolmsoff; Steve Sadler, Dave Brannon, Brian Neumann, and Summer Riedberger. The theme of the Holiday Parade was "The Spirit of Christmas in America" - and since most of us duck hunting is a big part of most of our Christmas holidays, the BCSRC float was a duck blind and pond.

The 2002 Christmas party was held on Friday, December 13 at the home of Joannie & Carroll Miller. We had a great turnout with about 25-30 people in attendence. As per usual, the food was spectacular, the meeting was short & sweet, and the gift exchange generated lots of laughter. But most of all, a good time was had by all.
