Exclamation Showtime!!

Well almost. It's definitely time to think about how we will pay for the booths in Seattle and Boston this year. There are two shows in Boston, we'll only be able to do one of them this year.

I will try to dream something up and will post shortly. Ideas are welcome!

Fly Selections

I am sure that there are members and others out there that wouldn't mind having a collection of another member's flys.

Would love to have a collection of your Rats, Sedges and Caddis patterns or maybe some of Striblue's killer saltwater bugs.

The member ties up the flies throws them into a nice Wheatley or C&F Box and they are auctioned off...all proceeds going to The Forum.

Just a thought to get the ball rolling...

I agree... I would love to participate some way in the Seattle show (In absencia).. I had some "Chatham Sand eels" that went well in a silent auction for the annual Boston CCA meeting.. 16 assorted types, all proven , in a white foam box.. I will have several for the Boston show and will talk to Juro about it.. But let me know what you will need for Seattle and I will get them ready if you want. Juro, to bad we can only do one but that would let us see one of the shows in greater detail I guess,(although I did sneak off several times).

We still have gift certificates available. The procedes go directly to the forum. Right now it's only potential cash and will remain so until people take advantage of a good deal.

20% off certificates are available for the following shops

3ea $50 to Old salt in Hingham, MA you pay $40
4ea $50 to Cape Cod Kayak in Taunton and Falmouth, MA you pay $40
2ea $25 to Billington Sea Kayak in Plymouth, MA you pay $20
1ea $50 to The Bear's Den in Taunton, MA right across the street from Cape Cod Kayak. you pay $40

This is a great chance to help the forum and save a few bucks.

If you're interested just respond to this thread.

Didn't we get some kind of non-profit booth at the Wilmington show last year? If so can we do that again?

BOOTH MONEY

Good day,
I build traditional Adirondack furniture. A chair and foot rest might go well for the Seattle show. Hand-made, cedar, people love 'em. comfy!
Let me know...

I appreciate the offer and I'll take you up on it but the problem is we have to get in there first!

The Chair

A chair built in the classic style reminiscent of the old Fishing/Hunting Lodges of Maine.Made completely of Tight Knot Cedar, it measures an impressive 45" high at the back, is 43" stem to stern, and has a generous 24" wide seat, just so you can add that Down throw on a crisp morning or evening with plenty of room to snuggle in!
The arm rests are a full 32"long and taper out to a full 5+ inches wide, enough room for your arm, hand, and a cup of what ever your pleasure might be! It is finished with 2 coats of Watco Teak Oil. It has a 9" foot rest that fits under the chair when not in use.
These are custom made, 1 at a time, for discriminating sportsman and sportswomen.

An advancement on the fly idea. Perhaps people could donate flys(maybe in conjunction with the swaps) and when there are a whole bunch of them, they would be raffled off in one big pot.
I think that another sight has done very well with autions. Contributors donated tackle and services and other members bid on them.
Maybe it would help if we knew what kind of numbers we(Juro and Dana and the Forum) were trying to hit. What are the forums operating costs?
How much is needed to participate in a show? I'm sure that these costs have been mentioned befor and I just didn't see it.

SHOWTIME

Eddie,
Here, Here! Looks to me that this thread has been hit 250 times as of this post, and responses have been good! Lots of people interested in this. Potential at these shows is great! I've done them, you meet alot of people! Soooooo.... what say, Juro and Dana and friends? Lets do the how, what, where, when, and how much routine. Seems to me it's time to put on the waders and step onto the water, forget about the fact that you can't see the bottom right now, go with the that the final result might be!
(Whoa, dude, like thats so philisophical man, with the water and all)
Alright, Alright! Sorry, I got alittle deep
Were here guys, organize your troops.
Deerhawk

Eddie -

Because no one is lining their nest with proceeds here, our budget is pretty light - but because we are far from being good at fund raising while being great at eating up costs, it's always a tough battle.

We will be working on the 2003 budget goals. Are you any good with these things?

Deerhaawk -

Words to wade by brother!
