We’ve mostly locked in the seminar schedule for the show next weekend… Here they are…

Members of other chapters are welcome to attend. We have added a beer garden this year. For the kids there is an archery range in addition to the trout pond (not combined :-) ).

We do have some volunteer slots open to all chapters as well. We could use some help Saturday and Sunday. If you can’t see the volunteer post, feel free to email me at and I can give you specifics. Thank you!
