Alright, who's going? Will be heading down Saturday morning with the wife.

I haven't gone so I'm not familiar with the convention center, so can anyone recommend a spot for P&S folks to meet up?

tac and bass, thanks. yeah, 4.5 hours for me, wish I could give someone money and let them pick me up some stuff, heck the money I will save at the show will not out weigh the gas it takes me to get there, better re-think this one.

I want a cheap surf blank as this will be one of my first builds, I do not have the experience yet to dump a whole lot of money into a set up I am going to try to build, from what I hear it is more daunting than anything.

Sounds like you and I are twins....You from Wilmington?:D

My brother and I will be there early Satuday as well. I'll probably be wearing some brown Dickies Jeans. I might find a sticker that says Island Tackle and Hardware if I can remember, Ill wear that so you can know its me.

I wouldn't worry too much about that. I rebuild the first 2 that I made after improving the skills. So the blank isn't done after building on it and stripping a blank is another new and fun skill to learn. But you can typically find some decent deals on blanks there.

The best thing about the rod show is the training seminars. They're invaluable to a beginner and will get you well ahead on the learning curve. You'll get a chance to meet and talk with some of the best builders in the industry. Many of the book and video authors are there. The amount of talent present is simply insane.

All that said, I won't be going this year :( My current job ends 3/31 and I haven't got anything lined up yet. So I'm saving the coin even though I have several interviews in the works. But with a kid in the oven, I can't risk blowing the money on a hobby, even an incredibly addicting and rewarding one :(
