    Can't wait for the rod and Jim seminor. Will Jim be telling us what a 3rd place ribbon means? lol Whats the meal at the banquet going to be this year? One things for sure is you always learn something at a show. Doesnt matter how long you been doing taxidermy there is always a new way or new product to see.

    Just for the info the show schedule posted above is the CORRECT ONE. The one on the website is outdated. It is harder to change things there and updates sometimes take time.
