I arrived pretty late in the day today (Wednesday) but ORCA librarian Jon Kring took some photos and I'll post them here. Lots more to come tomorrow.

First, Henry Caldwell, from left, new ORCA Prez Betty Barr and Dave Erickson talk about things to come in the 2015 convention.

Show hosts, from left, Ed Pritchard and Butch Carey. Butch has his arm in a sling from rotator cuff surgery, which will make it tough to reel in those monsters of the deep on the fishing trip tomorrow....

Image

Jacob Viereck and his wife Tania, who flew over from Denmark for the show.

Image

Jonathan Kring, looking none too happy. We can't decide if he's not happy to be photographed, or if he just missed out on buying a great reel in room trading. Inquiring minds want to know!

Image

And one photo from me, taken at the great seafood restaurant just a short walk from the hotel. Monster marlins over the bar and the place is decorated with dozens of trophy fish photos and some great saltwater rods and reels, too. Dinner was great (try the grilled, blackened dolphin sandwich, if you get a chance).

Great pics, Richard.

Seeing Henry reminded me of the great show he hosted in Lake George, NY. His antique store downtown was the bomb!

I think Jon may just be stressed out from learning how to use that new camera. :wink:

Well done Jonathon! :cool
