This is an img of the registration form

A printable registration form in the PDF attachment at the end of this post. The cut off and no late registrations are due to the time constraints and cost of printing the course materials.

Any questions, about the steam course please address them to Mr. Snider

For the people thinking of attending the course, to let you know the course book has been redone so it is is all new and about 240 some pages. Filled with photo's drawings and lots of info on the equipment that it covers, high quality printing. There isn't any wood cutting include in the course. Registration and fee must be received by February 15th 2013.

Here is the latest updates, and exhibitors info sheets for those that didn't get them.

Again the biggest change will be that NO ONE will be allowed to set up before the scheduled day! Since last year to many people were there and the city took notice of the people set up and visiting on the floor during set up. They said that if it continues, they will have to start charging the rental fee for the arena. So please do not come and try to get in.

This year you have to be registered before you unload either as a vendor or exhibitor. No button/no registration, you will be escorted form the arena.

Also there will be a strict unload and move your vehicle at the loading dock. This is for both exhibitors and vendors.

To address some emails that I have received. I do not know what vendors will be at others shows! I am only affiliated with N.A.M.E.S. as a volunteer I have been told that they have 38 already paid vendors booth/tables sold for the N.A.M.E.S. 2013 show.

I would suggest that anybody interested in the fact if a vendor will be at any other shows, that they contact the vendor directly and ask. That way there will be no misunderstandings, or miscommunications or other! You will have it from the vendor's them self.

Remember to ask for the discount at the hotels, motels for the show weekend. As some have said they will give one, after registration show them the button.

There is still a couple seats open in this years Steam course, contact Jim Snider his info is under the post on the steam course.




And finally for those that like to plan ahead: Show dates for the next couple of years.
2014,April 26th & 27th

2015,April 19th & 20th

2016,April 23rd & 24TH Note: it is possible to move this show dates to April,16th and & 17th the true 3rd week end.

The show is a wrap, for another year. Attendance was up on both days for exhibitors and the people through the doors. Weather was good but on the chilly side Saturday.
The sun was shinny and with no threat of bad weather on Sunday afternoon most exhibitors stayed closer to the end of the show. Steve's engine was a great hit.


Most of the vendors said that their business up some and better than last year. And the exhibitors, other than a couple seemed to enjoy themselves and hand a great time talking to the people about they work.

We tore down the set up and the doors closed on the trailers @ 7:06pm last night. a new record for getting out of the arena. Thanks to all the people that helped with the set up and tear down. And hope everyone had a safe drive home.

Can't wait for Errol's photo's and he was a happy camper as he one one of the door prizes!

it is good to hear that attendance was up. It looks like all of the gloom and doom sayers were wrong! The change that Cabin Fever made to April kept people in the area to be able to attend both shows. What is Steve's engine? How about some pictures and video. Ron

A mini V-8 that is pictured on the 2014 flyer! will have to get the links when the people get home and upload them.
It is called lil demon, it runs at a slow idle and then can scream at high RPM's smaller than a lot of the other IC type engines.
