    I'll be there! I have been to this before, and have enjoyed it more than the big shows. It's a good one. Looking forward to it.
  5. I will make it a point to be there. Thats a great group of people involved.thats for sure!!!

    There's one!!!
  6. hope to see ya there J its gonna be a great event..just watch out for that short guy
  7. There's nothing more boring to an exhibitor than sitting on his thumbs so help keep me awake and bring a list of questions or just stop by and introduce yourself. If there's something anyone wants to see then let me know in advance so i can bring something to help explain.

    FHRRA is one of my favorite groups and they'll put on a good show for you all and I'm looking forward to it. See ya there!

    I'll be staying over Friday and Saturday nights and will be looking for good breakfast and supper restaurants. Any recommendations Larry?

    Now why would you ask me that question?????????????????

    Great little breakfast place two exits east (not far) of the show. Exit Lost Nation go north almost to LakeShore to a place called JT's. On the left. Some of us might make it there that weekend too. Couple of places come to mind for dinner. We'll talk Sat at the show.

  9. Maybe Larry could do a seminar on breakfast dining at the show. Now, thats a talent I'd like to learn. Haha! I'm really looking forward to the show and attending a few of the fishing seminars. Especially the spring crappie seminar by Big Daddy!
  10. I hear they make a MEAN sausage gravy milkshake!!!:D :D :D

    Just wanted to update this thread as we have added a few more vendors.

    MaxedOut Enterprises maker of the Spoon Caddy will be there with Ole Pete's Lures.

    Steven's Auto Glaze & Security Retailers & Installers of Car & Truck Aftermarket Items.

    Pup Tents & More. Misc supplies for boating and other items.

    Plus OGF's VC1111 has agreed to donate for raffle two of his Homemade one of a kind baits! If you haven't seen his work and the other fine lure makers this site you owe it to yourself to check out the Tackle Making forum on OGF.
    "Fired Up the Airbrush" is a great thread.

    We will also be providing an OGF members area for a meeeting place. The OGF booth will have a few extra chairs for anyone that wants to hang out for a while.
    The Hunting/Fishing Flea Market is also looking good.
    Wear your OGF colors so we can but a face & a name together.
    Looking forward to see you at the show.
