The NGTO booth is up and ready to go. We are by several of the other non-profits around to your right as you enter the venue. The looks to be better than last year with more booths and several of them look to be larger.

It looked even better "live" and it was nice to put faces with names. AND I finally got my NGTO hat. (Neal)

Default Thank You - Volunteers

I'd like to thank everyone who volunteered to man our booth during the two day show. I'm thankful Saturday - I got to get out and spend some of my time and money with some exhibitors at the show. Thank you - Kelly.

Trout8myfly - thank you for the slideshow and all of the additional information you provided to me and/or our booth visitors. I felt much more comfortable with my what is NGTO about pitch. I now mention it's "free" and it does gain attention.

I lost count at how many already NGTO members stopped by and talked for a few minutes. It really impressed me at how far and wide the NGTO message board has reached people who have an affinity for fishing. Fishing is all inclusive of fly and conventional gear in either fresh or salt water.

Thank you to all of you who reported or asked questions with your account or other issues in accessing our message board. I will summarize and send to the appropriate board member(s).

And a tip 'o the NGTO cap to retiredmp, who ramrodded this event for us. The booth was neat and orderly, volunteers showed up on schedule, and many a 'lurker' stopped to say "hi."

I was glad to finally meet Kelly Hinson....I thought he was a fictional character.....but he's real!

I agree, Carolyn did an amazing job and deserves a lot of thanks! I also met Kelly Hinson, chuck morris, and trout8myfly, all great guys. Gout even suprised me with a graduation present, some squirrel tail for fly tying and it makes awesome tails for my nymphs.
