Favourite PAC Conference talks

Post by micky dolan » Tue Jan 05 2021 19:25

Which was your most memorable PAC Conference talk ?
I think it has been asked before whether any of them were filmed ? :shrug:

Missed so many people I wanted to hear for one reason or another , would be a shame if some of this piking history was lost .

I,ve only been to one PAC conference at Leeds Armories.Listened to the late David Overy talk,it was the most inspirational and enjoyable listening, i could of hoped for.although i never met the man in person,i was saddened at his passing and believe our sport as lost a great ambassador.His passion for his fishing really came to the forefront and his fears for the treatment on his fishing being affected by other parties have been proved true.

Hi Micky, Eddie Turner & Dave Hortons the best for me :cool:

Eddie’s was definitely filmed as I was sat in the same row as the cameraman (video)

Don’t think Dave allowed his to be filmed as he was still in the Fire Brigade at the time?

Eddie turner the talk was great the last bit of underwater footage he showed was food for thought as he rounded it off.

For pure entertainment, Gord Burton.

Not an empty seat in the house whenever Gordy was on.

The most thought provoking for me though, was Spence Petros.

Eddie T was most enternaining I seen in a long while, Theo's talk in 2019 was really good and fun too.

Dave probably didn’t want to have it filmed and leave any evidence for ‘Wally’ :grin:
Great inspiring talk and amusing to!
