Fly shows

Simply put, with the virus going on...will you attend the shows this coming show season? As a customer, fly tyer, vendor?

I have been doing shows forever 30 years as a tyer, and vendor and obviously unsure about this season.

I quit tying at shows a couple years ago and have only sporadically attended as a customer. ASFI in Miramichi was the last show I tied at.

Pretty sure i'll not be attending any this year either.

Ted, I doubt anyone will be running a show unless an effective vaccine emerges. Every show in the PNW has been canceled through 2020. Ronn canceled his get together as well (10-12 people - Harrang, Ostoj, Woods, Mcneese, Cortez, Bachand and even Reinhold last year). Ronn and I have carried on the Thai and Tye tradition despite the pandemic, and it's been 6 ft apart with take out. After all these years, the tying events are really about getting together with people you see once a year, I find I talk more then I tie.

What are you going to miss the most (sounds like Eunan is done with the shows) with no shows ?

Maybe we should set up a Zoom tying session ;)

It has always been, and always will be about people. Tying ignites, the banter is major purpose...

Zoom tying...sounds interesting if it is about teaching and discussions...logistics need to be sorted like what time is best across the board!!!!!
