Here are some pics I took Friday during set-up.
Here's some of what I walked away with.
I can't thank Berto enough for that Rook SG and those original Pirate pistols. Now my LaFitte can finally do battle.
Well, another meet is in the books. And it was again a blast. Well worth the 14 1/2 hour drive I make each time. My son and I had a great time. I appreciate all the deals everyone made me. There is no better place to get good buys on stuff than the meet, not even in the marketpkace.
I was really impressed with all the new faces this year. I won't even begin to list everyone (I'm so bad with names). I am so glad you all came, with wifes and kids, it was great to see. I believe next year our ID badges will have both our real names and museum names.
And to the old faithful - Brian, Dave, Chris, Berto, Tom, Charlie, Ron, Paul, Doc, Chuck, Derek, Jim, Art & Rose, Scott, BL, John, Steve, the CAW gang and all the others a big ole hug ya'll. While I will talk to you all almost everyday here I look forward to seeing you all again next year.
If you are ever on the fence about coming I urge you to. Even if you are shy like I am you will fit right in. Sure you do have to talk some to get the ball rolling but it's so worth it. Putting faces with names, hanging out in the suite, going to Undos, watching the Mego races (new this year), listening to Art tell his stories, everything - really makes the museum that much a more fun place to be. You already know when it will be in 2011 so mark your calendars. If I can drive 1650 miles round trip anyone can make it.
See you all next year (hopfully I'll be employed too ).
Scott A (Mr. Andersen to Rose, )
And to Berto and Tom - "Lookout, it's GODZILLA!!"
