Vern, so glad you asked this question. This event is a welcome call to all rod builders so that they can meet and learn more about the Custom Rod Builders Guild. Two gentlemen in the Rochester area have been teaching basic rod building to hundreds of students through the school system. This event was scheduled so that those students, as well as rod builders everywhere, could learn about some of the additional rod building elements that members of the Guild already use. All are welcome. A mix of seasoned builders, such as yourself, as well as those having built only one rod will be on hand. We still have two spots open for presenters so if you or any other rod builders wish to contribute by demonstrating during this event please shout out. You would be welcome.
