I spoke to Bob Braendle two days ago. He said it was still happening.
He was going to talk to Glen, then start to promote it.

Friday Before

I would like to offer a two handed get together for those who would like to try two handed rod and Line brands not often found in the Great Lakes. This is not a sponsered event as this is my private collection. This is not to say these brands are superior than other brands, I just like to collect things that are not often found around my location. You can come out and try my lines on your rods or mine. I will have several reels already loaded and if we need to change lines, my system allows me to change lines very easy. I encourage anyone new or have been around awhile to come out and enjoy the two handed casting fun. I'm by no means a two handed instructor but I can show you what I've learned from friends that have paved the way. I would like to meet the Friday 9/27/2019 8am till? This will be before the GREAT LAKES SPEY FEST which will be on Saturday 9/28/2019.
Here is a list of Rods and Lines that will be available.
