  • The Fly Fishing Show - Atlanta Feb 2,3, 2018

    It's not to early to be thinking and planning ahead for Fly Fishing Show - Atlanta to be located at the Infinite Energy Center, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway, Duluth, G 30097. More info: (www.flyfishingshow.com)

    I am the lead for the set-up, manning and tear-down for the upcoming Fly Fishing Show - Atlanta. I'm getting the request to assist out early, and hopefully about 20 folks will provide at least one volunteer per hour, we are operational. Volunteers and tickets to enter into the venue to perform outreach at our booth.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Fly Fishing Show - Atlanta: Non-Profit Booth Contract Requirements
    It has been a tradition of the show to give group discounts to your club. If purchase a block of 20 tickets or more you can receive show tickets for $10 each.

    NOTE: I will purchase a block of 20 tickets for $10.00. If you purchase one of these from me - you pay $ 10 versus $ 15 at the door. First come first serve on these discounted tickets.

    1. We provide the space, but you must bring your own tables or display, The tables must be covered and skirted to maintain the look of the show. NGTO will be using it's own tables and linens to be set up on Thursday afternoon.

    IMPORTANT
    2. Each group gets (5) worker admittances per day to man their booth if it is located inside the show floor. The only exception is where the volunteer booths are in the lobby, or at the entrance to the show floor. Show tickets must then be purchased for a reduced rate if volunteers wish to attend the show. If they work your booth only, and do not want to attend the show there is no need for a show ticket.

    3. Electricity has been purchased for our NGTO booth.

    4. Also, we insist that no “hawking” take place in the aisles. All other paying exhibitors are confined to their booths and can’t stop people in the aisles. Violating this rule will hurt your return invitation.

    Retiredmp,

    I will be glad to help. I can help set up Thursday if needed and the earlier the better Saturday works best. So I can do a couple of hours.
    Just let me know.

      I'd be glad to help as well, but I will post closer to that date so I have a better idea of what times I would be able to make it.

            I can probably help out; would offer on Thursday but that is my wife's and my birthdays. That's pretty close.

              Uncle Jesse - Thursday requirements are only for the set-up of our NGTO Booth - we begin at 5:00pm and I only need one more volunteer.

              Happy Birthday in advance to you and your wife. I hope you both have a great day and time together.

                Carolyn put me down for 10-11 Friday please. I think I will be free. If something comes up I'll be there Saturday for sure, but I'm banking on Friday so I can go to the film festival afterwards.
                We are the music-makers,
                And we are the dreamers of dreams,
                Wandering by lone sea-breakers
                And sitting by desolate streams;
                World losers and world forsakers,
                On whom the pale moon gleams.

                  Carolyn put me down for a time and date TBD. Most likely Saturday.
                  I am officially upgrading Gatorbyte from "fly in my ointment" to "thorn in my side". If he happens to elevate himself to "pain in my a$$" I'm gonna blame it on RScott.

                    Carolyn,

                    Put me down for set up on Thursday.

                    I'll also work half a day Saturday and if need be all day. If you get more volunteers reduce my time to make accommodations. I'll also help with tear down if needed.

                            Volunteers Still Needed

                            Happy New Year!!!

                            Can you believe it's already January 2, 2018? I look forward to this new year and the journeys that lie ahead.

                            The Fly Fishing Show - Atlanta begins in a month - February 2 & 3. We are fortunate to have secured a non-profit booth.

                            Having said that, please consider stopping by the show to take it all in.
                            NGTO will provide free access to five volunteers each day. Additionally, I have 20 pre-paid tickets for entrance for $10 daily - saves $5 from gate entrance. Contact me to coordinate for the free/discounted entrance fees. First come first served.

                            Need to rest your feet or your wallet? Come on over and spend some time in our booth and share your experiences. Sign up for an hour or two - I'd really appreciate it.

                            This is an amazing opportunity to share our organization with all in attendance.
