    Went out for about three hours today as it was only 2 miles from home.  We took some friends 4 and 9 year old boys along and they enjoyed it.  Several nice modular layouts and a fair number of vendors, but NO TOOL SELLERS!  That's all I was looking to buy.Sigh [sigh]

    Attendance seemed fair but overall the show was smaller than the last one here a few years ago.  Anybody else make it, and any impressions?  Gary

Show was OK but I've seen much larger shows with more vendors and more layouts. I thought the vendors sales were not impressive as there were no real "deals". Discounted prices off list prices were normal. I've found better pricing in Walthers monthly sales catalogue and other shows .  I suppose it all depends on what a person is looking for to buy.
