    I would like to try something different this year for a seminar. Instead of the usual "watch me mount something", I want to use the seminar as a hands on teaching opportunity. I want to spend some time going over reference and anatomy at the beginning of the seminar, but then move onto assisting anyone in the room with challenges they may be struggling with on their fish. I will bring my painting supplies, carving supplies and other miscellaneous supplies I use on a regular basis. What I need from those attending is that you bring the subject you need help with. If it is carving a form, correcting a template, painting, fixing seams etc... we will address the challenge in the seminar. I suspect most of you run into similar obstacles so I hope this will be more beneficial for those of you in attendance. Let's make the seminar what YOU need!

    In order for this to work, I need you guys to bring some projects you need help on, so give it some thought and bring some projects to the show in June.

    Feel free to contact me if you have something specific in mind and you want to make sure I have the required tools and supplies with me.

    I'm partly color blind which is a big obstacle, have any special glasses for me LOL. Hope to make the show this year. Paul B.

    Sounds like a great opportunity and something I personally look forward to. Unfortunately I'm not sure my truck is big enough to fit all the mounts I'm having issues with!

    See you in June

    Hey Paul, you may need to connect with Gary from the AIT show, he seems to have mastered getting through the color blind challenge, check out his gill on the fish board.

    Jeff, I'm sure you have some cool projects we can work on.

    Look forward to seeing you guys at the show

    Reminder for those attending the NEAT show. Bring your fish challenges to the show. We will try to address them during this seminar. I intend to bring a variety of tools and supplies, but if you pm me what your bringing, I can make sure to have the required materials. This is your chance for a mini workshop catered to your needs. Look forward to seeing everyone and some fish projects we can work on.
  16. PM sent Brian. Look forward to your seminar!
