Autumn and breeding season is upon our doorstep. The leaves are turning red and gold… giving me thoughts of other golden things. It’s time to make the decisions of which buck to which doe, to produce the best offspring… who to keep and who to sell on to other breeders.
Indian summer has always been my favorite time of year, with it’s warm days and cool nights. Interestingly, it is the “boy’s” favorite time of year also. Labor Day is my annual signal to get the doe’s flushed for breeding and the bucks given extra nourishment in preparation for the “season”.
This year, autumn is also a time of farewell. It has been an honor to serve as president of the GBBoA for the past two terms. I want to thank everyone who has helped get the GGBoA up and running during that time. Now it is time for me to pass the baton on, although I shall continue to serve, as Treasurer.
Our GGBoA annual meeting will be held on Oct. 14th, at the ADGA Annual Meeting, being held in Asheville, NC. It is there that I will open our meeting for the last time and step down, as our new president, Randy House, takes over.
As a number of members are expected to attend the convention, I am hoping we can get together for a bit of socializing, aside from the meeting. I will be pleased to meet folks that I have been having communications with over the last several years.
