2013 Fly Fishing Shows

2013 Fly Fishing Shows

Postby Daniel @ Tenkara USA » Tue Aug 21, 2012 5:24 pm

It may be quite early to do so but I just wanted to throw it out there to get you all thinking:
I'm starting to plan our presence at several shows next year and would love to see if anyone would be interested in "volunteering" with us at our booths for any of the shows below. I put volunteering in " " as I could certainly hook you up with gear and a nice dinner in exchange for your time or pay you too. My plan is to personally be at each of the shows if I can, or have someone in charge of the booth.

We can firm up things in a couple of months, but here are the shows I have committed to doing. Ideally we'd have people doing at least two of the days (preferably all days of each show):

Denver, CO (The Fly Fishing Show): January 4-6
Sacramento, CA (ISE): January 10-13
Somerset, NJ (FFS): January 25-27
Winston-Salem, NC (FFS): February 8-10
Lynnwood, WA (FFS): February 16-17
Pleasanton, CA (FFS): February 22-24
*tentative: Salt Lake City, UT (ISE): March 14-17

Please let me know here or via a PM if you may have an interest in helping out. These tend to be a lot of fun (I think). Flexible on accommodating compensation and schedule, but will need strong commitments by December.

Thank you,

Daniel

Finally!!! You are making it out to NC! I wish I could help with the booth, but I will be a demo fly tyer so won't have the time too. I will be sure to come over and say hi though.

I'd love to help when you come to Denver.
Sounds like fun!

I think I have that Friday off so I could support then if no one else can make it.
Obviously we can sort details out later. :)

From someone that has now helped run, or in the case of the Tenkara Summit 2012 ran, a Tenkara USA booth, it is indeed fun.

If you love something, getting to chat about it a few days, is rather a nice thing.

In between chatting to guests and current and future tenkara users, you can also get to know the other booth volunteers better which is a great bonus.

Then make sure to use the time to pick Daniel's brain for tips on how to improve your own tenkara fishing. How often do you get a chance to pick someones brain that actually travelled to Japan and learned from the tenkara masters?

Win win!

Hope to share the booth with some of you in 2013!

I would love to help out in Pleasanton and in Sacramento. I live in Sacramento, and have family very close to Pleasanton.

Any way I can help, please just let me know what would make your travels and show more enjoyable.

Anyone who is willing to help will be in for a treat. Working the Pasadena show was fun.

Hi Jim,

Just let me know if you'd be interested in spending time in our booth and what dates/hours out of the show would work for you. It would be wonderful to have your help.
Thank you,

Daniel

I'd help in Denver. Anything that you need. Set/up, take/down, bring in food (pie) let me know how I can help.
