Thanks John!

Things are going swimingly! We are full up with great vendors,  we've added another 20 display tables and  1 new display category. Our Goodie Bags are full of great stuff.  And our host hotel is full!  Yea, we sold out the whole place except for 15 rooms that were previously promised to a tour group... God help those folks!  I've already talked to the hotel about securing those rooms for next year.  The new restaurant is The Tilted Kilt and they've agreed to give everyone with a hotel key 20% off their bill. I should be there sometime Friday morning.

 

And I do want to thank everyone who stays at the host hotel.  Your patronage makes the whole thing feasible. And the sell out is a weight off my mind since I'm guaranteeing those rooms on my credit card, since most of our herd books at the last minute. Otherwise I'd have to turn back rooms at the 60 day and 30 day marks, and a travel group could grab them. It's a busy time and competition for room blocks is fierce. A lot of tour companies doing New York City trips actually put their folks in NJ hotel rooms, since NYC rooms are $300 plus a night.

 

This year you will be able to book your reservations for next year at the desk upon checkout. Please do so. Your patronage helps us look serious. Although we have a good track record at this property, there is new ownership this month, so we have a whole new set of management to break in!  And I had the old owners in our pocket. The owner himself came to NNL East with his son the past few years.

Okay, folks.

 

I didn't see one in this area or down in the shows section, so let's do the annual NNL-East check in.

 

So you know who to look for, run and hide from or throw stuff at (depending on your opinion of me,) this is me.

 

These are the best pictures of me that I have right now.

I'm standing on the far right in the back row.

I'm looking forward to dinner Friday, renewing acquaintances and meeting people for the first time.

I'll be across the street at the LaQuinta- it's what I could get.

 

To finish my project- if I can't get another PT locally to raid the headlight lens from, I did see there were a couple of hobby shops on Rt. 23, both not far from the hotels. Anyone familiar with them have any preference?

I hope you guys don't sell out all the good stuff before we get there tomorrow!  Looking forward to picking stuff up from you 'n Kris. Heading to bed now as I'm getting up at 3a.m. to start the adventure.

To all who are going to the NNL East- have fun and try to not spend a whole lotta $$$!  I'll be at a steeplechase in Mineral Springs tomorrow but I'll be with you guys in spirit.  "Maybe next year..."

I'll be there as Rascal Resins selling resin show rod kits. I'll also have a few models on display. Looking forward to enjoying another wonderful NNL East!

I'm planning on spending as much as I can afford I pre-ordered a bunch of stuff. I got my wife involved in the hobby so I even have her shopping list so I'm off the hook.

Charlie- If you head west on Route 46 from the hotel, you will find Tech Toys  up a ways on the right...

Tom and everyone from Tri-State Scale Model Club,

 

Have a fantastic event this weekend!! 

We're confident it will be bigger, better, and even more memorable than ever, but we want you to know we wish you well!

I'm at the hotel with a friend of mine who's not a builder, but whose girlfriend is on Long Island, so he'll be going to see her tomorrow. Getting here was interesting, coming from 287, Rt. 23 seems to magically disappear, Rt. 46 and a road trying to force me onto I-80 appeared, but I managed to find my way back, taking a back-roads tour of Wayne in the process.

 

Just need to get my bearings to dinner, and I'll see as many of you tonight as possible.

Great show… Great friends…. Great time. As I was walking out I dropped a few bucks on a resin Phantom `69 GTX 2dr. wagon and 4 bottles of paint. Spoke with Dave Metzler from Mobius about the upcoming `65 Plymouth Satellite announced today, along with a Hudson coupe. Test shots of the new Ford trucks were on hand too. Nice guy, nice product. Hope to see the new tools by the end of the year hopefully.

 

Awesome show as usual by Tom & the Tri-State crew. Thank you!!!
