Kirkman is like China that uses "dumping" tactics to put US manufacturers out of business. He keeps the admission price to his expo real low so that all the other events that have to charge more will look bad. But he can only eat the cost for so long before its bye bye.

The Custom Rod Builders Guild stands ready to pick up the pieces and put on a rod building show for ALL the rod builders.

Why wait? Just start a great expo yourself. Right now. Charge more and make it way better.

All the manufacturers and dealers are up kirkmans ass. Even the Guild does not have the money to do a show like kirkmans. But if people come to their senses and stop going we can do it for less money and focus more on education and less on bling. It would be better for everyone if this happened.
