Just the thing I needed to see this morning. Wish I could be there but these photos are the next best thing ... keep them coming! If any BIG REELS show up give me a call and perhaps I will have a good ORCA show too. Like the beer in the photo ... my glass is half full in anticipation.
HAVE FUN FELLOW ORCANS!

It's interesting to note that B.C. Milam carried his spare lathe tools in a Dillards shopping bag.

That's where he put all the seconds of the reels he produced, Phil. Those seconds were given out as raffle prizes at dinner last night. :shock:
