Seems there outta be some level of cross referencing between the two 
list.........Sowbug and Conclave. An empty seat serves no purpose.

Again, I was not asked. I have been told that this has always been invite only.

Tony, tyer attendance is low because the tying chair is working off the same 
list every year. We have over 100 FFF members in our club and nobody got asked 
to tie. In fact no contact was made to our club to see if anybody was 
interested in tying nor has there ever been any contact of that sort. Last year 
the Junior Tyer of the Year was not invited. When you work off the same list 
every year, some folks die, some move away and some just stop showing up. It 
doesn't take a wizard to figure that you eventually have a sparse room. 2 years 
ago, when our club put on the Conclave, I convinced Toby to come back after he 
swore he would never tie again. I called Bear and asked him to please invite 
Toby and he told me to have him send in 6 flies for review and he'd get back to 
him. When I started coming to Sowbug, I barely knew how to tie. You told me I'd 
be just fine and I was. I haven't missed my session since. Since then we've 
been able to add 3 more folks from here to the roster. I could fix it but that 
ain't gonna happen.

It was good to see a number of list members and I agree, the tyer attendance 
was a bit low.
See you all back at the Sowbug.

Tony- You looked good tying at conlave.  Saw alot of tying buddies it was good 
to see them.  Good conclave but I feel they were short on tyers but the ones 
who tied did a good job..  I  enjoyed the conclave.  We had 8 Tri-Lakes members 
show up, We need to do better next time.It was good to see you up and going, 
keep well.   Peggy and  Mark  sure were going strong as usual.  I  got to visit 
with a few other list members also.   Dail Graham

Just had several tyers come by to say so long for now. Most will be back for 
Had a nice visit with several list members. Jerry the visit with you was no 
more than a hand shake.. It seems there is not enough time to really visit.
