How do you cope with the influx of all that extra detritus and dust lets alone the noise in your Den. Almost as bad as being invaded by your wife along with the family dog and cat doing a visit. :D

Details for Saturday - 14 signed up, 12 maybes. We might be treated to a visit from Mike Joyce, one of the most innovative and creative rodbuilders in the world, and the best when it comes to Dec Wraps. PLease let me know ASAP if you are coming so I can figure out how much food I need to order.

 

Admission: $20

Start time: doors open at 9, we will start show & tell at 9:30 so try to be on time.

Food: Blackfish chowder which was AMAZING the last time James brought it!! Sandwiches. If anyone is bringing anything please let me know

 

Topics:

- Will focus on Blackfishing - How to select a rod for the area you fish. Differences in materials, differences in how the rods bend. Reels, rigs, techniques on how to catch more fish - holding the rod, getting bites, selecting crabs.

- show & tell = please bring your Blackfish rod/reel/rigs.

- How to install tip tops.

 

I will cover whatever topics you want, but you have to let me know.

Up to 20 & 10 maybes. The menu has been updated, Joe's bringing Tomato Pie & peppers, Paul is bringing Joe's crockpot filled with chicken chili dish. I'm not getting a hero, if there isn't enough food I'll order a couple of pizzas.

I've added the following topics:

- Shading wraps: using the ratio formula in my book, and shading with bands.

- will discuss selecting colors

- installing tip tops

- at the end of the day I would like to have a round table discussion on modifying wrapping lathes, epoxy dryers/chucks/motors. If there is something you dislike about your clemens/Renzetti, think about what you would do to improve it.

If anyone is interested in Rodgeeks blanks, I have a few models, and a bunch of colors. A couple of FW ones I will sell at a discount. I also have a bunch of Bushido FW blanks (Mag Bass, Dropshot, Crankbait).

Sorry for the late notice on this. Dress warm I do not put the heat on, and the door will be open all day. If you have a chair please bring on, I only have 12 chairs and we now have 28 people attending, and several more stopping in throughout the day.

 

I would appreciate it if you're going to hang out and BS if you do outside so those who are trying to hear a presentation can focus on that. If you are BSing in the shop, please try to keep it down so I dont' have to talk over you.

 

All food will be upstairs in my kitchen. I will also have a coffee pot going all day, I just need someone to brew it when they get here early since I dont' drink coffee and I dont' care to learn how to use the coffee maker thing, lol

 

We have no end time for this event, feel free to stay as late as you want. PLEASE understand it's a REALLY long day for me, and at some point I'd like to sit down and relax and BS with everyone too.

 

I am anticipating a really awesome gathering tomorrow, I cannot wait to see everyone! Safe travels.
