I plan to attend, as well as my son Paul who lives in Tn. and is a member. This will be the third Nationals we have attended. I am going to have a display of mostly newer reels. It takes most of my money just to attend and leaves little for making purchases. We enjoy attending the seminars and meeting members face to face. My collection is mostly low end. I do not attempt to sell anything, I only collect. (Much to my wife's dismay) Looking forward to Frankfort.

I will be there. Am planning a display of Meisselbach surf reels. Jon didn't mention, but his son Paul is in the process of designing a nice polo shirt to be given to each member that has registered.

I'll be there. I haven't sent in my registration yet because I can't make up my mind to rent a table. I have made my room reservations though. Look forward to seeing everyone and hope there will be some members that I haven't met yet.

I will be there on Wednesday. Planning on a small display on a sale table with some small reels for sale. I collect VERY large big game reels.

I'll be there and will have a table, but haven't figured out what i'll bring. I would like to bring a display of some sort if i can figured out a combo that will "teach" something about a particular maker or reel. Sales will be either pre-levelwind casting reels or VH saltwater. Wants will be same plus better fly reels.
