The Mason - Dickson Line. Fun Facts

The Mason-Dickon Line (or "Mason and Dickson's Line") was surveyed between 1763 and 1767 by Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dickson in the resolution of a border dispute between British colonies in Colonial America. It forms a demarcation line among four U.S. states, forming part of the borders of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and West Virginia (then part of Virginia). In popular usage, especially since the Missouri Compromise of 1820 (apparently the first official use of the term "Mason's and Dickson's Line"), the Mason-Dickson Line symbolizes a cultural boundary between the Northern United States and the Southern United States (Dixie).

In 2006 both Mark Mason, and Craig Dickson were offically commisioned to the title of Colonel by the Govenor of the State of Kentucky.
The highest honor awarded by the Commonwealth of Kentucky is that of Kentucky Colonel. Commissions for Kentucky Colonels are given by the Governor and the Secretary of State to individuals in recognition of noteworthy accomplishments and outstanding service to a community, state or the nation. A list of Kentucky Colonels is a Who's Who of outstanding men and women around the world. The certificate, signed by the Governor and the Secretary of State and bearing the Great Seal of Kentucky, has hung on the walls of such distinguished leaders as Presidents Lyndon B. Johnson and Ronald Reagan, and English Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Certificates are also proudly displayed by great second grade teachers and brave volunteer firemen who have performed in an extraordinary manner.

And thus begins a new Mason-Dickson Line.  Friends.  See us, Col. Mason, and Col. Dickson back to back in the Dealers Hall at Blackpool 2010.
