The 2017 UBI Banquet will occur at the Northfield Conference Center in Springfield on March 4, 2017. Mike Mitten will be our keynote. His keynote will be a new presentation entitled "The Solo Spirit." I know this date may conflict with some pig hunting but we were very limited with our choices for dates so we returned to our historical banquet weekend date.

Kenny McKenzie from Missouri graciously agreed to build us a right handed hybrid longbow, 50 pounds at 28". I've seen pictures of the finished product. It is a nice one! Kenny will be shipping it to me and I will bring it to our banquet.

I finished a 62", 55 pound, right handed d/r longbow that I will be donating. It is flat grain red elm under clear glass with an osage/walnut laminated riser.

Surewood Shafts sent me 3 dozen douglas fir arrow shafts to donate. 2 sets are tapered and the third set is youth shafts. They are very nice premium shafts.

We agree, Jerry. It was great seeing everyone again, and thanks for the hard work by all involved and also to those who donated items for auctions & raffles. We always enjoy participating each year and especially when Bob wins the card raffle! Bob & Jan
