i talked to trout travellerthis weekend and he thought he was going. Maybe him and I will ride together. I always get there early soI would not mind meeting for breakfast that would be cool.

 

Dont know the restaurants inthe area too well but it seemed like there was a couple places nearby last year.

I will be there for sure. It's 10 minutes from home. It looks like it could be a good show. Has anyone been to last years and how was it?

I am not tying. I am not "big name" enough to tie at an event like that. I went last year and watched clouser tie. It wsa less crowded last year becasue of the new venue. Hopefully some of the folks that used to attend , like bill skilton, will be back this year. Also the show is on the same weekend as the spring sale down at cabelas. IT is not that far of a drive from their if looking for other things to do.

Meeting up for breakfast sounds like a plan. I went to Macomb for school and Worked around the corner from the National Coney for 8 years. If there is anything you need to know about the area, let me know.

 

The midwest fly tying expo was my first show, so I don't know what to expect. I went to cabelas after that show. It's about 45 min from I-96.

National Coney Island at 0900? It's on the west side of Grosbeck (M-97) the second building south of 12 mile road.

 

and here is the address

 

National Coney Island

28901 Groesbeck

Roseville, Michigan 48066

does this sound like a good place to meet up?

I'm game.I spent many a breakfast and lunch there. It as good as most places around there. And it's easy to find! I have eaten at just about every national coney in the area and the food is good at all of them.

I might be there, it all depends on the weather. It's a little bit of a hike from North Carolina! unsure.gif

I've been to every one for the past 10-12 years. It's one of the countries great shows! I think it's because it is NOT run by the organization that does most of the rod shows in the country, it is put on with passion by a club and it's members: http://www.mffc.org/

The new venue absolutely ROCKS! headbang.gif I'm sure this year will be even better now that the organizers know what to expect.

The Detroit-style Coney sounds good! I'm a little tired of cole slaw Coneys!

I've had the coneys down south a couple of times. They are good, but I like the detriot coney. Hopefully you can make it up this year!
