Title: 2015 WTA Convention
Post by: RGKulas on January 23, 2015, 06:16:00 PM
Who is attending???? I plan to attend again and really enjoy the vendor hall. Its a good way to deal with cabin fever. Feb. 21 In Madison.

I just finished my donation and want to encourage others to come up with a donation. The money goes to a Great cause.
like last year, its leather chopper mitts with removable liners. This year They are festooned with Realtree, WTA embroidered patch and a little inking. The liners are Polartec Fleece and the mitts are a buttery split cowhide. Silicone waterproofed.

Once again your craftsmanship is outstanding Ron. Those are nice mitts.

I have not made anything but I am in possession of a side quiver that Rick Krattinger made for the banquet. It sure looks like a nice quiver and by chance he also has an archer on it as well.

It sure was a fine showing. We had so many vendors show up last minute we had to ad another row plus fit them in where ever. I hope everyone had a good time and went home with a prize. Thanks to all that came out.
