I am upping the ante on the indoor casting clave. The one who locates, secures and posts the arrangements (da' meister) for an inddor casting clave will receive an Old Florida bar stock disc drag reel w/ case (retail over $200) as the service award.

Here are some (suggested) guidelines, open for discussion:

- the location should be central enough so that it's convenient enough for many to attend.

- I think three hours is a good time span for either a weekday evening or a weekend day (in my opinion)

- We should try to at least break even on the cost of the hall rental. School auditoriums are a good choice as long as they are high and long enough. Preferably there will be enough to donate to the school if we got that route, or better yet raise funds for the Forum - but break even is still good fun for us. Anything shortcoming between rental and attendance will come out of the Forum's existing fund base, not out of member pockets.

- I will assist in finding sponsors who might show up with rods and lines for us to try out (or buy)

- We should make it a learning experience for those looking to brush up

- We will try to close out some raffle items during the event by selling tickets and drawing them at the event (no need to be present to win if you already have a ticket). We need to finish all the raffles before spring when the focus becomes all fishing, all the time.

ANY TAKERS?


Special thanks... the reel was donated to the Forum by sponsor <font color="0000ff">Blue Northern Trading Co.</font><!--color-->, Ayer MA (978) 772-6779

Adrian, John -

Brilliant idea, a great direction we need to go toward with this forum... <b>education</b>. There aren't enough kids getting into it either, with video gaming at peak interest levels in young america and such.

In fact if you look at our 2000 antics, we taught, learned and discovered. Our appreciation for the intrinsic value of wild places grew.

I wonder if it's as simple as contacting various adult education programs in high schools, colleges, etc? Worth a try I guess.
