I just got back from the AquaShow convention where I met up with Anthony Archer-Wills. My inspiration to attend the AquaShow, which is a pool and spa expo, was because AAW was scheduled to speak on pond construction.
Who is Anthony Archer-Wills anyway and why was I inspired to go see this pond builder? Well, AAW HAS BEEN BUILDING PONDS SINCE THE EARLY 60's!
Anyone that has been in the business that long, had to have a wealth of information to share and I wasn't about to miss out on the opportunity to sit in on a couple of his seminars and get the chance to meet him.
I have to tell you that I was rocked back on my heels by his presentations! Anthony Archer-Wills delivered in a huge way! AAW's experiences and workmanship was absolutely, extraordinary!
Just short of being a stalker, I followed Anthony Archer-Wills around for two days! I had many opportunities to ask him questions about ponds and the history of water gardening and I took full advantage of my time with him. Anthony if you read this post, I certainly hope I wasn't a pest!
I have TEN PAGES OF NOTES from his presentations and my time stalking him, that I will organize, elaborate on and then post on our website for all to learn from.
If you are ever lucky enough to have the opportunity to hear Anthony Archer-Wills speak, whether you are just getting started in the hobby or a veteran pond builder you will be amazed! I highly recommend it!
