About the PNW Blanks & Rod Building Seminar

Excited to announce April 27 & 28 will be our 1st PNW Blanks & Rod Building Seminar in Woodland, WA. The VFW, Talon Rods and Patriot Factory will host our locations for the seminars and classrooms with special guests. We'll give factory tours in our blank facility and rod builders will get to roll their own blanks to see "How it's made" first hand. We believe this is a great opportunity to learn and connect with fellow PNW rod builders.

Please purchase your refundable ticket below and make sure you read the details. Hope to see you there! (This event is free...HOWEVER, there is limited space available at this venue. So to make sure you have a spot, please purchase your ticket, once you enter the door on the day of the event we will view your Order Number on your emailed receipt and refund you the ticket price admission.)
