We could use 2 helpers for ~30 minutes after the show ends Sunday for tearing down, and packing the booth and materials into my car. That would be awesome if you can help!?! All volunteers will be added for a year to the special GLBass Friends group if not already in there. And you will have my eternal thanks and appreciation!

BOOTH VOLUNTEERS SUMMARY
You will get more details in the private volunteers area of the forum. You will be able to see it once I add you to the temporary show group. I will state a few things now. I need people who can talk to others in an outgoing, friendly fashion about joining the websites - mostly GreatLakesBass.com and GreatLakesIceFishing.com, handing out stuff and just answering general questions about fishing. NO ALCOHOL in the booth. No sales or giveaways of items not pre-approved by me before the show.

This is only a 10x10 booth so there's not a lot of room for extra friends and family to come and hang out in the booth. Please NO extra people behind the table or blocking the table front who are not on the volunteer list. The schedule can be adjusted some to accommodate people willing to help who can't fit one of the existing time slots. THANK YOU!!!!

This is a month after my surgery. I will still be off work. So.......... If I can drive, if I don't hurt too bad, if a lot of things, I'll be there again for the whole show. I'll keep you posted.

Well... don't overdo it!!?! I don't want that on my conscience. So you're having surgery soon then, I take it? Good luck! Hope the doc is a good cutter. Ask him or her if he fishes so maybe that is kept in mind.

Surgery on the 4th. They say I could be off work for 6 months. I just hope it doesn't affect my spring fishing too much.

2019 Expanded Outdoorama Features More Fishing and Hunting Gear (http://www.greatlakesbass.com/shows/2019/02/27/2019-outdoorama-features-more-fishing-gear) than ever! Read the full article at the link above.

Doors open Thursday, February 28 at 1 PM. GreatLakesBass.com / GLIF is in Booth 5714. Novi, Michigan at Suburban Collection Showplace.

Just poking my head around today (Wednesday) while setting up my booth, it looked like there was more fishing tackle than I've seen before at Outdoorama. Break the cabin fever and come on down!

I might have to check out the seminars by Mike Gnatkowski on how to take better fish pictures! Sounds interesting.
