    As of right now we are trying to firm up Jan. 23rd at my place. Chuck and I will discuss brainstorms this week and try to come up with an agenda. Please post topics you guys want to discuss. It is our intention to make this an informitive meeting that will continue to gain momentum. We want to host events through out the year to do some hands on demos as well as develope a network of builders within our area. This is not a money making venture but a sharing of knowledge and help on hangups. As far as the swapping goes I dont mind but do not want that to be the main focus of the meeting.

    The last point being said I believe Chuck is planning to meet at Fishsticks4U to do a meet and greet with Scott late morning. Then at a designated time head to my place and do the remaining demo stuff. We plan to have some food and drinks and expect to have everyone who wants to attend to bring something to contribute. FYI I will definitely have beer on hand and welcome additional contributions.

    Again We will hash out the details this week and start a new post next Monday with final detail and schedule. I really think this is an awsome idea and really hope to see it become successful. With the backing of at least three major players in the rod development realm and components, the possibilities are endless.

    My place is:
    3613 Highland Creek Dr.
    Apex, NC 27539

    if you want to map quest it.

    To echo what Steve said, this is a rod building meeting first. I dont mind the swap meet and will bring stuff myself. The reason for the swap meet is for all the misc things that we encounter as rodbuilders. The couple extra guides that we have that will have a rare chance of using or what not. Right now we need you guys suggestions of what you would like to see at this meeting. The layout and demo of a dec wrap will happen for sure, but what else would you like to see? Guide foot prep, different guide choices, stripping a rod, handle and grip construction, applying epoxy? Serve up your ideas and we will try to cover what we can. Right now It looks like we will have at least some of Tommy Farmers new line of blanks and completed rods to demo, Some of Ryan White's Hatteras Jack brand blanks to demo and several of our own rods with various wraps for you guys to check out. I will have copy's of Billy Vivona's Decrative Wraps book on hand, and will bring my lap top with Visual Wrap software installed if anyone is interested in learning anything about it. I do also plan to get to Fishsticks before we get started so anyone that is wanting to can go through the shop, meet Scott and Karen and pick up supplies. This is something that Steve and myself hope to make happen on a regular basis, and am planning on doing one at my place, and Scott at Fishsticks has already expressed interest in doing one at his shop.

    Me as well would love to help out but more on the learning factor my wraps look nice yes I think But they arent have of what they could be as you all know. There are alot of things I would like to see, And I might just have to bring one of my woodring wraps to show in person if someone would like to look at them. Also I could bring Some lil smokies and bbq sauce where i am from they go good with beer lol. What would you all think about makeing a video base on the demos and at the end of the year all the videos could maybe be sold for a cherity foundation to a cause we could later find out. You all know that this is going to get huge. And there will be so much to benifit from these meetings that is great that people are getting thier motors running for this already and the 23rd will be here before we know it. I hope the weather stays fair.

    Mark me as tentative. I don't have any extra rod building skills not present on the board, but am a pretty good BBQ cook and can bring some smoked piggy. The good folks in NC may freak out by seeing tomatoes in the sauce, but don't worry, they're not poisonous! :P

    I prefer mater based BBQ. Vinager based is western NC and Mater base is Eastern. I,m right in the middle so get the best of both.

    OK here is what we go for now. I plan on meeting those interested at Fishsticks at 9am. This will give the guys who want it an opportunity to check Scotts place, and pick up supplies.We are planning on heading over to Steves house about 11. Right now we will be doing a decrative wrap demo, and a guide prep, wrap, and epoxy by Scott Parsons, who owns fishsticks and Threadmaster Epoxies among other brands.I will go over my setup for dec wraps and how I plan and layout the wrap. There are some usefull tips that I have read, learned and picked up from people for this. I will also have Billy Vivona's Decorative Wraps book on hand and will go through the book a little, and show how usefull it is for doing wraps. I am trying to bring my laptop with visualwrap software, but as of right now I am having trouble loading it. I am checking to see if it is vista compatable, so I cant say for sure that I will have it available. Everyone bring some food and drinks, I dont think anyone has a problem with some beers, but dont come planning on getting trashed....I plan on bringing a BBQ shoulder lexington style and maybe some cheesecake for desert. We will probably be posting a sign up sheet to make sure that we are all comfortable.

    They would make excellent beginner blnaks for what you need.
    Ryan, I will have to pass on those blanks, something else came up....
