    Arthur,

    If you can't get a ride, let me know and I will pick you up somewhere. I cannot give you a ride home because I have to work the shop.

    Leland.

    Depends on what her Ladyship's got planned. Since she works still, and I don't, it's something of a "good thing" to follow closely that line in the Preamble..."ensure domestic tranquility"...as it were.....

    Brother, we're in the same predicament. However, the (domestic) warden has given me a pass for the day to attend the event; I'm there! :thumb:

    I do believe that the misses, girls and I will plan a camping outing in that area. She realizes that I plan on going on the 20th so beign closer will garner more family time. I am looking forward to seeing some friends, making new ones and making a fool of myself with a rod in hand that I clearly can't handle.

    Ed,
    Bring the family to the event, the park has a great kids play area, even a skate park for the older kids! I hope to get my neice (5 yo) to the event as well as my friends boys (5 and 8).

    Also, there are some nice raffle items, including a set of Kirk's (ItchyDog's) "Olive the Little Woollybugger" books! http://olivethewoollybugger.com/

    Thanks Bill. If we do all come, and I'm hoping we will, I'll see you again then. If we happen to win the raffle we might have to hand that prize off to someone who does not yet have the set. Whenever Itchy has a book to go to print I'm waiting in line! I'm looking forward to this event and hopefully getting some pointers on that elusive two hander.

    Arthur, I was referring to the Itch Doy series of Olive the Woolly Bugger books not the switch rod. I don't have enough Kharma to win a fly rod. Must be my storied past.
