Thanks for making the Bobbi-Joe Buck and Doe a Success!

On May 7th, 2010, carloads and truckloads of people assembled upon Flesherton, Ontario for the Buck and Doe for Bobbi and Joe.

Surprisingly, many people within the realm weren't sure what a Buck and Doe was!

Wikipedia defines a Buck and Doe as:

A stag and doe party, a hen and stag party, a buck and doe party, or a jack and jill party is a party and fundraiser for an engaged couple.

In Canada, a stag and doe, or buck and doe, is a wedding tradition popular in Southern Ontario.[1] The event is usually organized by the bridal party, but in some circumstances may also be held by the bride and groom before they are married, similar to a 'Jack & Jill.' It acts as a fundraiser for the wedding. Guests purchase entrance tickets and are entertained by draws, food and drink, music and fun and games. It is not a combined bachelor party and bachelorette party, or engagement party, as the primary focus is to raise money for the engaged couple ,[2] so their new life together is not started in debt. The intent of a stag and doe party is specifically to make a profit.[3] Often, people who may not be close enough to the engaged couple to warrant an invitation to the wedding or reception (especially in the case of a small wedding), will attend the stag and doe so as to be part of the overall wedding celebration. Hosting a stag and doe party does not preclude the couple from participating in other wedding-related parties,such as a bridal shower, bachelor party, bachelorette party, and so on.

In the United Kingdom, a buck and doe is a party where the families of the bride and groom raise funds for the upcoming wedding. Games like Crown and Anchor are used and people have to pay for beer in order to offset the costs of the wedding and honeymoon.

Thanks to everyone who endured the Monsoon-like weather, the hike up North (or down South, out East or away to the West), and made the night not only a success, but a great time as well!

Here are some of the pics from the big shin-dig.  Thanks to Sarah Wade Fawcett for taking the shots and posting.
