Plugfest 2012 wrap up

That was fun. I enjoyed the entire day. Seeing friends, old and new, swapping stuff, talking shop, learning. Great day!

I think Ted, the Greek got the long distance award, having come up from Philadelphia area. Top award was won by one of our longer living Marines, and was well deserved. Loaded up on hardware, as Mike and Barb were well stocked. And Felicia came from college, as she didn't want to miss a Plugfest. Can't mention all of you, but I came home with a great collection of plugs,rubber, cod jigs, wood stock, and master blanks. Thank you all for participating. Your skills are truly impressive. I am thankful for the friendships in this community and your generousity with information and plugs.
JohnR and Bruce. You have a really good thing going here with the site and this event. Thank you for taking the lead on this. I will be back!

I think this venue deserves a second look next year, no doubt. As everyone else said good time, good people, very little planning, no meetings, which meant no pissing contest(just joking) , made for an awesome event.

Its kind of like having a plug flash mob with food.

This was my first plugfest and I was really impressed with the craftsmanship. Seeing the pictures of these plugs on-line just isn't the same as seeing them up close. Thanks to JohnR, Slipknot and all the guys that helped put this together I cannot wait till next years plugfest. Being a newbie thanks to all the guys that swapped with me.

Bill had a great time. He enjoyed chatting with all and I could see him eying the paint jobs. I expect to see some interesting things next time I see him. Ron McKee's comments to him about the break lines and contrasts between colors had him thinking. As usual he enjoyed seeing Blond Terror and his work. He was impresssed (as I was) about how everbody's game continues to move up a notch or more every year. Really looking to this upcoming season and pictures of fish on people's own wood.
Thanks to Slip and John and everyone else who helped put this great event together.

plug fest

Thanks to all for a great time. I learned a great deal and the information from the guys is priceless. The guys painting plugs gave great insight in supplies, tools and technique. Once I start finishing some of my new plugs I'll be sending those people some to try and evaluate. Thanks to Mike for all the ideas on novilty plugs and design. Sorry I didn't get to try the food because I was so busy on the floor learning my new obsession I lost track of time.

Bruce,

No problem at all, If it was raffled off and went to a good home and to help out the S-B site, that's the least I can do for all the information, help, and friends I've gained here.
I hope the builders who won the Jitterbug and Flaptail enjoy them as much as I did making them. Wish I could have joined you guys!!

Best, and good luck this spring!!

MS
