I'm another student

for the afternoon class on Friday.

I stopped by GLFFC this morning and put my name on the list. There were still openings for both classes.

They are forecasting warm weather for the weekend.

removed_by_request Auction follow-up

I forgot to add the end of Auction will be 12pm on day one of the clave.

This will allow us all to head home for Mother's Day if need be.

See Bob's post in the Claves/Gatherings section.

Any rod specs?

I have one of Bob's demos at present (11'6" 5/6/7 fast progressive) and will bring it along. Do you know what rod Bob is donating? I have yet to see a rod of his that I didn't like.

Clave Update

We have a special surprise for all Clave attendees.

There will be an R. B. Meiser two hander available for auction. If any of you are familiar with his rods, you know how great they are.

A big Thank You goes out to Bob for allowing us to do this.

Bob you are the best!!!!

(Bob will be following up with rod details)

The auction will be run e-bay like; the winner will be the person who bid $1.00 over the second highest bid. This will be a silent auction; bid sheets and place to deposit bids will be provided on day of clave.

This will be a cash only auction so please be sure to bring plenty of folding money.

Once again Thank You Bob for your generosity.

Sponsorship of this site encouraged

I did call to sign up for the intermediate class, though Andy will probably tell me I've overstated my case (I'm a long-standing member of the Sucky Caster Club). I hope to see others of you there!

If you call to sign up for the class, please ask the folks at Great Lakes to become a sponsor of this site, as their sponsorship of the clave shows they have some interest in supporting speyfishing--and the midwest membership of this forum is growing. I did ask, and Ty said he's been discussing this with Glen (owner).

removed_by_request I think Andy is coming into town on Thursday. Glenn is supposed to be holding a Spey casting class with Andy being the instructor.

I am 99% sure the classes will be held on Friday and or Monday. Possibly both days, with a beginners class on one day and an advanced class on the other.

Once more is know I'll post.

As always please feel free to e-mail for any off-line questions.

02-07-2004 09:35 AM
juro Any chance of doing three days? That way people could play hooky on Friday and get two days, those who are free men could attend Sunday as well.

Just a suggestion. BTW - all this talk about brots had me running to the store to get some yesterday :hehe:
02-07-2004 09:20 AM
removed_by_request For the record, those were the only days we could get Andy Murray. Pure and simple.

Tough choice, Spey Clave with Andy Murray or Spey Clave without. Not to mention Glenn was generous enough to cover Andy's expenses.

Which one would you choose??

Also Dan had nothing to do with bringing Andy on. It was through the dauntless efforts of Doug and Glenn. For that we owe them a big THANK YOU!!!!

JR SPEY Truth is, I don't remember Dan asking us for any imput on dates this year. Maybe he did and I missed it. For 2003 there was quite a bit of discussion about the best dates and, in fact, the dates were changed a couple of times. I think Dan picked these dates to avoid the circus of opening day of trout season without realizing it was Mothers' Day.

shotgunner "hind sight is 20/20" where was the opposition when tentative dates were mentioned?

thankfully, i'm blessed with understanding females in my life. (at least for the most part, this will cost me in the end) SG

JR SPEY It's not Wifes' Day, it's Mothers' Day. Many of us have elderly mothers who truly look forward to this event, and I don't mean by spending the time on the water. For those of us who would have to travel quite a distance, a one day event may not be worth it. As I've noted on another board, it is nearly impossible to pick a date that doesn't have a conflict. Last year, I believe, it was opening day of trout season in the area. However, I think it will be beneficial to avoid the MD weekend in 2005. Also, please remember the mjyp didn't set these dates.
