Carolina Cane Gathering

April 19, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - April 21, 2018 @ 12:00 pm

The 2018 Carolina Cane Gathering (CCG) will be held on April 19-21. It will be held at the Pisgah Wildlife Center near Brevard.

Events will kick off with a picnic supper at 5:30 pm on Thursday the 19th at the Sycamore Flats Picnic Shelter. This will be followed by program activities at the Wildlife Center on the 20th (8:30 am – 5:00 pm) and 21st (8:30 am – 12:00 noon) and by a dinner/social gathering on Friday evening at the ECUSTA Brewing Company.

As with past gatherings, our goals are to provide rodmakers (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) with opportunities to meet other builders, share tools and techniques, brainstorm on common (and not-so-common) problems, cast rods, and enjoy fellowship.

The details of this year’s program are still in development, but you can count on a mix of presentations by experts, plenty of time for Q&A, round-table style discussions of specific issues in rodmaking, and the opportunity to cast rods built by other participants.

We also anticipate having a silent auction and a swap meet.

The cost of the Gathering is $75 for those who register between March 1 and April 1.

This fee includes access to all program activities, the welcome picnic, coffee and pastries and lunch on Friday and Saturday, and the dinner/social on Friday night.

Early registration is required. Please contact Thom Hardy at thomhardy0@gmail.com.
