Susquehanna Chapter will have a 10′ x 20′ booth at the Lycoming Mall Sports Show, courtesy of Don Jacobs of WNEP Channel 16. The show will give us the opportunity to sell the huge collection of fishing equipment donated by long time member Don Neyhart along with other used and surplus items donated by chapter members and others. We met with Don Jacobs on March 22, when he interviewed us and made a video of the equipment which we were sorting. There will be a segment about the Chapter on the Pennsylvania Outdoor Life Show on March 31, 2013 at 6:30 pm. He will be soliciting more donations on our behalf and the theme will be“Recycle your old fishing equipment”
This is a great opportunity for our chapter to establish a new way to raise funds. Six of us, Bob Baker, Bill O’Connor, Kevin McJunkin, Joe Radley, Scott Rupert and Dave Craig have already spent over 45 man-hours sorting and pricing the items we already have. We need more to sell. Please look through your equipment, and donate your surplus to the chapter. Don told me that they had traffic of over 100,000 people at the show last year, so we need lots of product. Email or call Bob Baker (firstname.lastname@example.org)or Dave Craig (email@example.com) to arrange to deliver whatever you have. Only saleable items, please. Sort it out, since we do not have time to do more of that work. We have lots of good stuff, including five good Sage rods, fly tying tools & equipment, books, lures, and much, much more, etc.
WE NEED LOTS OF HELP!!
We must man the booth from 10 A.M. To 9 P..M. On April 4,5,& 6, and from 11 A.M. To 5 P.M on the 7th of April. We should have at least four people on site at all times in order to handle the traffic and to provide security for the equipment. Please consider, and advise Bob Baker or Dave Craig when you can help. Email is greatly preferred for communicating this information. We must set up the booth on April 3, starting at 9 P.M., and will need help
