Our annual flea market will be held April 11 on our parking lot starting at 5 AM. One space is free. If you need more room, you can see Bill Sr or Bill Jr and rent another space. Most use their tail gates and bring a table.
As you are cleaning out your tackle boxes, put aside items you can no longer use.
As always, we will have a vender offering coffee and breakfast sandwiches, etc. at a reasonable price.
There will be plenty of help for those wanting to spool their newly purchased reels that day.
