    Yeah, we are trying for vendors this year. As you might imagine there are a lot of people that have to give their blessing when part of a big car show like this one. Will post an update as soon as possible and a flyer is coming soon.

    Well, the builder formally known as "Back Seat Bob" and I got back late last night, and now that I'm rested up a bit I wanted to take a minute to Thank all those involved in the show. I've been going to this show for several years now and have yet to come back disappointed. Dan, Bernie, and everyone else in the Cactus Car Modelers and Moonlight Modelers have made us feel like family. For those who have wanted to attend, and haven't yet, you are missing out one one good time.

    It was great seeing some of the friends I've made there. Brad, Chris, Johnny Southside, Art, Paul, Had fun at breakfast.

    See you guys next year (if not sooner).

    It's actually a 1:1 show (7 buildings worth not counting the outdoor show on Saturday and Sunday), but the model contest draws in the range of 250 +/- entries typically.

    Good show yesterday, I for one, had a good time. Saw some folks I haven't seen in a while.

    I'm sure someone will chime in with the exact count, but whatever it was, it was a real good showing for a new show. the builds on the tables were fantastic.

    Hopefully someone will post pics.

    And to the organizers, Great Job! Hope they do it again.
