  1. I’ll be in the booth. Show hours are Thursday and Friday 12-8, Saturday 10-7, and Sunday 10-5. Schaumburg Convention Center 1551 North Thoreau Dr, Schaumburg If anybody is around the Show Sunday at closing, we usually go to Tom Loo’s after if you’d like to join us.
  2. Besides being a nice article on the Mazon, it reminded me of what a wonderful writer John Husar was and how much I miss his outdoor column.
  3. That axe was made on the “Forged in Fire” TV show. It is so sharp, you can cut down a tree with one swing of the axe.
  4. We all were having such a nice time, nobody thought to pull out a camera! Thanks to everyone who came out.
  5. Looking forward to it. Remember, for members, pizza is on us!
  6. Jim Crowley will be the featured speaker. I’m not sure who the conservation speaker will be yet.
  7. All of the outdoor shows happen after the first of the year. This one, is earlier than all the others, so.......it’s The Early Show.
  8. Robert Thompson is an Emmy awarding winning producer currently living and working in Chicago, IL. A former Michigander, Thompson grew up in the north east part of the state as an avid fisherman and found his way to a fly rod in 2004. Fly fishing soon became an obsession and in 2009, he combined his background in film & television and his love for fly fishing to create fly fishing documentaries. His first film Night of the Hex was released in 2010, followed closely by Musky County in 2011, Heart of the Driftless in 2012, The River in 2014, Spey Daze in 2017 and latest release Summer Haze in 2019. All of his films are set in the Midwest and parts of four have been featured in the Fly Fishing Film Tour. Robert Thompson will talk about his experience filming around some of the best locations in the Midwest. Dennis Potter owner of Riverhouse Fly Co. has patterns in the Umpqua catalog. His tying theater will be at the show & he will demo his unique patterns.
  9. 8 of us made it to Tom Loo's Thai Garden for excellent food and friendly conversation.
  10. I’m so glad that even though the fishing was less than stellar, everyone had a good time and so many have already signed up for next years Road Trip already.
