All who attended the 2016 Lake D'Arbonne Crappie Dot Com owe Doc Waldo (Mark Weldon) a great big round of thanks. To put together such an event takes a lot of time and dedication and Doc put in plenty of both. I'll admit he had some great help, but it's only through his unselfishness and dedication to the project that it again went off without a hitch. Thanks Doc.

    The food was super on both Friday and Saturday nights with many pitching in to get it to table. So thank you to all the many cooks and helpers that put in the time and effort. Everything I tasted was great I'm just sorry that I couldn't taste it all, there were just to many varieties. All of y'all deserve a big round of applause.

    We also own a special rounds of thanks to the sponsors who generously gave to the cause. I cannot name all of them but there were many rods, reels, bait bucket, fish skinner, duck calls, rod holders, gift certificates, fish fry, hats and shirts, game washer, and plastic baits by the hundreds. I know I missed some but not by intent, there were just so many. Everyone present got a gift, members friends and kids. That was the greatest.

    Of course it goes without saying, but I will anyway, none of this would be possible if it wasn't for Ed Moes and CrappieDotCom. Thanks Ed for making it possible. Your dedication to our sport and your dream is unlimited so thank you for letting us take part in it in such a way.

    I hope everyone had as great a time as I did, and hope to see everyone next year.
