    Default Thank You

    I would like to Thank everyone for coming out to the Rodbuilding Gathering. We had between 6 & 8 people throughout the day. I am proud to say that there is one more rodbuilder in the world today. Frank Wilkinson came out and learned how to assemble a rod, and how to wrap guides on, this is one of We had 2 attendee's from the previous gathering. Mark Brooks came out, brought his wife along with. I had exchanged Emails with Mark prior to this and he was asking questions about Customizing a rod for his wife. There was a lot of discussion on his different options so I hope we havn't muddied the waters too much for them. Pete Pickett came and brought with him a homemade wrapping stand. For less than $20.00 he was able to put together a wrapping stand using a drill he had. I was impressed. What was even more impressive to me was able to was his technic for drying the finish on the rod he built. It just goes to show that with a little ingenuity you can do a lot with a little.
    I am terrible with names so please forgive me for not remembering the names of everyone in attendance. I do appreciate everyone that came out, and I hope to see everyone come back.

    There will be one more Gathering May 22nd then we will take a break until the fall. I will be sure to post reminders out here
