    I'll be there in two aspects. One, I do believe I'll be helping with the Project Healing Waters booth. Not 100% sure on that one, Chuck and I haven't discussed it, but I'll probably help one way or another.

    Mostly, I'll be there helping with the food. Supplying alot of my cooking devices to help crank out the food for the people. So I'll be there with two hats on, my PHWFF hat, and my Camp Chef hat. :)

    Whoohoo - :thumb::thumb::thumb: to the cook!

    Looking forward to this event. It's got something for everyone. Beginner classes, info, demo rods, LOTS of casting room, and both Single Hand Casting Games and a Spey Casting Competition!

    WoW!

    Generous advise Leland, not that I'm surprised.
    Sounds like a wonderful event. If I can make it I'll be "hanging" around Jerry.

    Even some of us from the South Sound will be there! I'll be there with the Gig Harbor Fly Shop booth so I'll be stuck in one place but swing by and say hi!

    If your spouse hates taking your casting advice you should definitely bring him/her! This will be a great event!

    Gene, great idea. I built a rod for the misses and got her all hooked up, waders, boots, etc. I've not pressured her at all, nor have I tried to teach her anything. I would love it if she would go to this thing and wander around. Maybe it will get her inspired. I think she'll be between classes too! Could be perfect timing.

    I picked up my flier at the PFF shop in Mill Ck and am looking forward to this.

    My 2 daughters boyfriends are both curious about flyfishing and I think I can get them to join along.

    I'll try to make it to represent Whidbey Is. (although I'm still a New-be, not sure if the local fly guys want me representing them:D)
    I'll put the word out out the WI Fly Club meeting on 10Jun and try to bring a couple of fellow new-be's.

    I thought the Whidbey Island Fly Fishing Club wanted a booth. Maybe you can give them a poke.

    One of those "blue lines" in the WA, MT,
    I fished w/ Steve (Islander) yesterday on Lone and mentioned the event and spreading the word through the club. He or someone else in the club may get ahold of you.

    The folks from AATF mentioned this to my wife and I during the Ellelnsburg Expo. We'll be there. Gotta get another hat.

    I might poke around if I don't have to work....or perhaps with so many of you going to this event, the rivers might be less populated :clown:
