The May 2017 edition of the ORCA Reel News is being delivered to ORCA members right now and it contains a registration form for our Annual National Convention being held Sept 6-10, 2017 in Branson, MO at the Chateau on the Lake. Don’t delay! Join The Old Reel Collectors Association now and register to join our club members in Branson in September for all kinds of fun.
There is so much to do in the Branson area for young families, not to mention the ORCA Convention activities planned for ORCA members. Our show day on Saturday is open to the public where everyone young and old will be welcome to see old reels on display, to get your own reels identified and appraised or to buy outstanding examples of antique reels offered for sale by our members.
As a member of ORCA, you not only have the opportunity to join us for our National Convention but you also receive a whole year’s subscription of the Reel News. Each issue is packed with antique reel history and research, stories about finding that fantastic stash of old tackle, and cherished memories about fishing with the kinds of reels that “they just don’t make like they used to any more”.
As hard as Editor Richard Lodge works to bring ORCA members a quality news magazine such as The Reel News, members need to support ORCA by sending in articles. If you are passionate about a favorite reel, type of reel or manufacturer and want to see more of it in the Reel News, you may be the very person knowledgeable enough to write about it! Your article may motivate others to add to your information and spur more articles on your favorite reel so get the ball rolling.
Remember that you can only receive these wonderfully informative news magazines about collectible old reels if you are a member of ORCA. Back issues are also available to members through the ORCA Store. For a quick listing of previous issues and to purchase, see Back Issues of the Reel News.
