This is great to hear! Last year I attended the syposium in Utica NY and had a great time! Last year they had booths set up, guest tiers (I hope to be one in 2011), and a setup for kids to learn how to tie. My sons went with my wife and I last year and they had a blast tying flies! I have not heard details on this years event, but if it is planned to be like last year it will be a great time.
Need more to push you towards Utica this March 19th? JP also writes "There is no fee to tie or even attend this year. We have decided to generate all our revenue from Raffles."
Details that I have so far:
Date: March 19th 2011
Location: The Hotel Utica in Utica NY
Here are a few photos I took at the event last year....I'll have to search more for the few photos I have of the main ballroom.
