We got home late this afternoon. It was wet at times, but we had a good time and it was nice to catch up with auld acquaintances and make some new friends.

As always, it was great to see you Rick and chat in person with George! I hope everyone had a great time! The weather messed with our schedule, but it made for more "jabber" time!.

Rain Friday but had a good time and was good to see friends and get to chat a bit. The saddest thing is that its now over for another year. I hope that everyone`s display got home safe and sound. To the caretakers of our great beast that we all love so much I trust fun was had by all and trust the trip home was well for you. I am already looking to next year I know there are a few more shows to attend this year that's a good thing.

This big Peerless portable stole the show. It was all the way from Alaska. It had an amazing sound on the fan. Perhaps others can give details?

Had a good time, met almost all of the people I have been talking to in this forum and via email for the past year, which was great. Also got a lot of questions answered and a lot of good ideas regarding my half scale project. Only one disappointment, didn't like being rained out most of Friday. Already looking forward to the 75th next year - need to get me one of them golf carts with the knobby mud tires by then! I hope everyone had fun & made it home safely.

Beth, After all these years it was a great pleasure to finally visit with you in person. However your weather forecasting needs some improvement. What a wet Friday it was. Good thing I brought my work boots. I did enjoy the show though. Met many people , some old and some new friends.
I had a busy weekend getting there and back though. Due to weather problems in Chicago on Thursday I was routed from Vancouver to Denver Colorado then to Detroit. Didn't get to Wauseon till 3 AM Friday morn. Coming home Sunday from Detroit we had a series of delays in Chicago so my flight to Vancouver got me home at 2 AM Monday morning. Made for a long weekend.
Cheers George.
P.S. Thanks Brenda for the motel info.
