Who’s planning on attending Micah’s event next month? UTK will be there with a booth with hats, T-shirt’s and membership applications. Mr. Leon is coming out of retirement to do his mountain lion trapping demo. That is worth he trip. Also, you will not eat a better meal than at Micah’s Southern Red’s Barbeque.

LOL... The last two weeks I've been working all up and down Ky 129 in Watervalley Ky. (actually ate at Southern Reds a couple times...fantastic BTW, unbelievably good catfish!), and I think it is 10 degrees hotter there than anywhere else in the state! We'll have such a good time, we won't even notice the heat....
