Plugfest 2011

Well it's time again to plan for another plugfest, where does the time go?
I have decided that I will take it upon myself to set the date for this event this time. So change your schedules accordingly since we are giving plenty of notice here. All you plug builders out there will have plenty of time to get things done.

Plugfest 2011 will be on Sat. Feb. 19th!
at the same place as last year
Fraternal Order of Eagles Hall 39 Cohassett Ave Buzzards Bay, Mass.

I still need to put down the deposit for the hall, but it has been penciled in for that date.

Same weekend as last years, so hopefully it won't interfere with any other big fishing events.

One thing that will be different this year, ALL entries to the plug contest will need to be mailed to me before the plugfest. We can't handle the huge amount of organizing it takes to sort thru all the entries and number them on that day, I will need to do that ahead of time. Sorry for any inconvenience , but that is how it needs to be. We try to keep it simple. I will have a thread later on about the contest with all details. So get your entries done ahead of time enough to get them to me. Thanks and good luck.

See you all there
I can't wait

there will be a thread about it later on but look at last years threads for an idea of what it's about.

we have a classic category and usually that will be judged by a panel of qualified judges.
then there is a rookie category, best of show,and a couple others and all who attend get to vote on those.

Thanks, Slip! Plugfest has become one of my favorite events of the year, Thank-you for all the hard work.

Last year was my first. I didn't know what to expect. Plugfest exceeded my wildest expectations. I can't wait for this year.

OK, we're all set for that date.
we'll have the hall from 8 to 3:30

I have a question for everyone.
The Eagles can have hamburgers ,cheeseburgers and hot dogs available in the kitchen cheap to go along with any food items we bring.We have to pay for use of the kitchen anyway. I think it's a great idea so all the responsiblity won't be on just a few helpers to get food ready and not everyone will have to bring food, just show up. We can still warm up dishes and bring desserts and drinks.

Sound good?

What? No manning the kitchen or 3 hours of checking in lunchbags? No people trying to peak in and see the competition advance?

YES!!!!



Thanks Slip

Very good. A coupla guys spent PlugFest warming and cooking chow and missed a lot last year.

We have done a get together every year since 2001.
do a search of plugfest on this forum, look at all the old threads about it and you'll have a book worth to print out.

Bring lots of cash. If they're not selling inside they will be outside.

Plugfest was never about selling %$%$%$%$.

I would like to attend this year and bring some plugs. I will be solo, My wife would rather have her eye lids tattooed than hang out with more people like me all day long.
