The Carolina Cane Gathering of 2018 was a great success. The weather started off a little chilly at the Thursday evening Chili Dinner, but the presentations, fellowship, and fishing made for a great weekend. Thank you to all the participants, we are already starting the work for CCG ’19. We’ve added a Previous Presentations page to the website that will have some downloadable content that has been provided by presenters from this year.
The annual Carolina Cane Gathering strives 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 participants in the Gathering. We also anticipate having a silent auction and a swap meet.
