With over 200 tables of vintage tackle and a full 2 day show in addition to room shopping, the collector’s cup can overflow. We refer to this show as a “reunion” because it is supported each year by some nicest folks in our hobby and new friendships are for the making. Room shopping most of the day Wednesday and Thursday until 6 PM when we have a 3 hour show set-up open to all the membership. Show hours are 9a to 9p on Friday and 8a to 2p on Saturday. We traditionally host a large survivorship auction Friday evening. Many times best NFLCC two day show award means the Winterfest is an annual sellout so make your plans early to join the 29th reunion at the Forge. Ask someone who has attended...our references will be outstanding.
