Pond Boss Conference & Expo
February 19-21st, 2015
Hilton Dallas Rockwall Lakefront
The sixth Pond Boss conference is coming this Winter to Dallas. This is a one of a kind conference geared towards pond owners. I will be there the entire weekend and will have several guest coming through during the week. Please check back here for updates periodically. Here is a message from Bob Lusk at Pond Boss about the conference:
"A fresh, new setting awaits you at the Hilton Dallas/Rockwall Lakefront on Lake Ray Hubbard, just minutes from downtown Dallas. This is a gorgeous property, and an excellent fit for the Pond Boss family. Fishing tournament? Of course! Pond Pro Series? Absolutely. Full Expo of all the latest, greatest stuff? You bet! The most knowledgeable stable of pros in the nation? Wouldn't have it any other way. But, wait, there’s more…the most important part…the energy of the Pond Boss family! You!
The Expo puts you face-to-face with leading experts, the newest technology and products. The panel of expert speakers is friendly and more than willing to share their knowledge and experiences with you. Best of all, connect with your Pond Boss family you’ve never met…and those you can’t wait to see again. Bring the whole family—the Hilton is a great venue with lots to do. We’ll see you there!"
