Post Wilmington - Staff Needed

Since this is our only real effort this year, I am officially looking for people to man the booth at Wilmington. Actually, the deadline for specifying staff badges is coming up quickly and I need to submit them to Paul's staff.

I will have tables and a nice banner to hang across the back, but we are going to skip the cottage facade to avoid the risk of any mishap (it's done it's job over the years but has seen better days).

There are four free slots open. Either a full day or two half day commitment wanted for these, but we can time share with others as needed if it comes to that. Not much for setup, should take 10 minutes. Tying, raffling, BS'ing that sort of thing - it's all about fun!

We will have several shadow boxes to raffle with some spectacular flies, one show grand prize, 2 second prize (1 per day) and several runner ups each day as well.

I am going to ask our usual line-up of pro's to hold tying lessons.

We will also have some other fund-raising ideas that should be fun.

!Unfortunately the Reading Field House is not available on those dates this year. If anyone knows of another facility in the immediate area, please chime in. I have a couple of ideas.

I can help out with whatever you need, last year was fun.
What will you go for 1 whole or two halves? If a casting site becomes available 2- 1/2's would make for a good transition to the demo locale. If that isn't going to come off this time why not go for the full day Saturday? Just my .02

Let me know how I can help.

I would like to help but my parents are ill and in a nursing home. Would not want to commit and then have to back out suddenly. That's why I haven't committed to anything.

I'm sorry but I won't be able to make it at all. I do have a bunch of flys for the raffle.

I won't be able to attend, but I also have a few sets of flies to pass on for raffle. As we get closer, let's identify who we can send any raffle flies to so they can be ensured to get to the show.

I am starting to put flies together apart from the swaps for the raffle.. Here is a picture of our booth from last year when Bob Popovics came by and sat with us to do some tying. Jay Horton is standing to the right and Juro took the picture.

Exclamation

So it sounds like:

Striblue (both)
Chris (1/2 1/2)
Adrian (Sun)
Penguin (Sun)
Juro (both)

with Pro guest tyers through both days, raffles for lots of flies, presentations, and general good tidings.

=> Can anyone else pitch in on Saturday?

No casting clave this year unless the weather permits us to do it outside, or if my alternative plan comes through as hoped.

Juro,
I have to back out. Got roped into covering on-call that weekend. Sorry about that I was looking forward to it. Catch you on the water.
