Happening Now! The 2020 Virtual National
The NFLCC has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 National Show and Meeting, which was scheduled for Springfield, IL.
Instead, you are invited to attend our first "Virtual National"!
Although we can't replace the face-to-face comradery that comes with attending a show, we can still stay in touch, show off our collections, and trade tackle! Starting Monday, July 13th, through Saturday, July 18th, we will host an online "virtual" National. Just like the National, access will be limited to paid, active club members, however, participation is completely free.
One of the features of the National Show is the many displays members have so carefully put together and hauled to the show location. This year, you don’t have to pack up any display cases, but you have the opportunity to display as much of your collection as you wish and at no table cost. Use our “Online Display” section to post photos and descriptions of a portion or all of your collection. Share some of your historical knowledge or ask questions about others' collections. You might even have a member contact you with an opportunity to acquire an item to fill a hole in your collection! The post with the most "Likes" will receive the show's Online Display Award.
We all miss room trading and the showroom floor activity. In 2020, we are introducing a virtual Sales Forum at no cost, no table rental fee! This section of the Forum is dedicated to any club members wishing to participate in selling and trading tackle. You will deal directly and virtually with the member via the Forum, phone, or email. All transactions between our members that are initiated from our website are expected to adhere to the NFLCC Sales and Trading Guidelines.
Instructions are posted in the "How to" section of the Members Only Forum. As mentioned above, you must be logged in to be able to access that portion of our website.
