I will be there. As always, I am looking for any interesting tournament reels (narrow or unlimited) and any Louisville, KY made reels.

Warren Platt will be there and I will be there as his caregiver.
I love to get old reels, work on them until they run as smooth as silk and the take them fishing using pre-1960 plugs, mostly surface fishing for Largemouths after dark.

I plan to be there. Looking forward to seeing you all in person. I expect to double my Zebco collection :D but I am mostly looking for really early reels, antique Canadian reels that I don't have and old metal lures (such as 19th century spinner blades/spoons marked Gananoque, ON).

I'm flying in on Wednesday and looking forward to seeing everyone. Like Paul, I hope to double the size of my Zebco collection (which would make it 2, including the Zebco spinning reel I bought when I was a teenager, which was a long time ago). I like John's idea about the Hot Sauce, too. :bow:

I'll be there early (maybe Saturday night) to attend to last-minute details. I'm looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting a whole mess of ORCANs who will be attending their first convention! On my materialistic "wish list," I like KY and NY reels, early Pflueger KY-style reels, pre-1910 Shakespeare, and unusual early spincast. On my lure wish list: CCBC glass-eyed 1500 Injured Minnows in blue- and yellow flash and unusual early metal. I can bring some Louisiana hot sauce; put some of that on food and it's a great lubricant!

Myself and son Paul won't be there. We have a conflicting golf outing in Ky that weel-end. Does Tulsa have a bunch of tornado/flooding damage. Stay safe.

I just got home from a long vacation and I can't turn around fast enough to get out and off to Tulsa. I wish I could make it as I know you guys who are will have a lot of fun. Will miss seeing all the reel but will miss seeing all the people more. Tulsa is now home to the Fin-Nor brand and I hope to get there some day. ENJOY and if there are any big reels there, give me a call! Post lots of photos!
