I would personally like to THANK everyone who has offered to donate time to making the Fred Hall showing a GREAT event. We have been honored with the support the rod building community has shown our efforts to make the Fred Hall event a success. The event will be successful because of the passion and commitment all have shown for our effort. The Batson Family is committed to this GREAT craft/art/industry. We believe it what it stands for and have a REAL passion to see it flourish. We have been blessed with a great start at promoting the event by some of the most talented builders donating there time and talents to the "Rod Giveaway" and also to share their talents in the Batson Display (Booth# 1205 =700 square foot display). I will be posting the demonstration schedule and rod give away schedule within a week. I am sure the display will be very busy for the 5 day event and we look fore ward to meeting as many of you as possible. Come on by and hang out with like minded people. Bring someone who has no idea about the craft and see our display. It will be fun. More to come Bill Batson CEO Batson Enterprises Rainshadow/Forecast/ALPS product lines.
