We could use 2 helpers for ~45 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. I expect a busy show so I am shooting for 3 to 4 people at the booth during the busiest prime times!! The schedule can be adjusted some to accommodate people willing to help who can't fit one of the existing time slots. THANK YOU!!!!

Thank you so much to those of you who helped during this show. They ended up with record attendance and we had periods of real busy time. We had short staff at times due to the weather and some deaths in a couple families so I really appreciate some of you who stayed long or came in when you weren't scheduled! THANK YOU!

We had a great show doing what we're supposed to - signing up lots of truly interested persons, we handed out about 150-160 GreatLakesBass.com website cards and thanks to additional help from ice fishing volunteers and versatile bass anglers we did almost as good on the GreatLakesIceFishing.com side with over 100 GLIF cards handed out and a good number of signups!

Most importantly, we answered tons of questions on just about every fishing topic possible from adults and more youth than at any other show in past memory. We really had a large number of inquiries about the various youth fishing programs including a real high percentage of the inquiries on Sunday! We handed out a whole box of lucky bobbers to kids of all ages too!

It was a great show! THANK YOU!!

I'm glad you felt so. I enjoyed it very much. Lots of catching up and seeing people from the 'old days' and people I don't get to see very often. Also met some GreatLakesBass.com members and lots of new fishing friends for the first time!
