I am really looking forward to making it out that way. We will bring the banners along. Would love to bring some tractors but we are driving out in the car and I don't think a tractor would fit too well on the roof LOL.

I want to thank Kate for providing us a tent so we don't have to haul one out there.

does that also mean theres no membership to buy to get to display? That seems to be a growing trend.

No Membership required, but membership is only $5.00 a year. When you have been a member for 5 years and 65 like me you get a life time membership.

well thats pretty reasonable price wise, alot of places want $25 memberships now just to show your stuff for the weekend. I beleive this trend will hurt the hobby.

I think it would hurt that particular show with driving people away but I don't think it would hurt the hobby as a whole unless all shows were to go that route. I understand shows need to raise funds to pay for their expenses and usually for people that are just showing it is either free or a few bucks. Now for vendors that are selling items then they are usually charged more for a vendor space.

So who is going to be there, and which days are you attending?

I am supposed to be off that Friday, and am looking into getting a room. There is a good chance I will have my two tractor loving minions with me.
