Two items that may be of interest, for those that are attending the NAMES show.

First is there will be NO table or both set up this year for Consignment Sales

Due to a falling out between the guy that has done it the last few years and the group of Live steamers that he was part of! I have no other info other than he is longer part of or affiliated with that Live steam group.

There will NO SALES ALLOWED @ THE EXHIBITORS TABLES As in all past years due to the laws regarding NON profit orgs in Michigan, There can be no sales by Exhibitors, and the ratio between vendors, and exhibitors has to be maintained along with the sales tax laws etc.

I am working on something for next year. Not enough time to put it together for this one.

The second thing is for any interested people the North America Distributor of the MULTI-PLAZ combo welding/plasma unit. Is coming in from Guatemala. He is the Author of numerous articles in the Village press magazines and George can give his correct name.

He will be demoing the unit at an outside location due to smoke etc.
See those that are coming in two weeks.:D

Here is the state of Michigan construction update site and map for the area.

http://mdotnetpublic.state.mi.us/drive/
Enter Southgate to get into the general interchange area, in the location window.

The biggest area is the junction Eureka Rd both East and West bound @ Fort st North and South.
It is closed and there is a very short detour drive around thru the left turn around in each direction.
Turn right @ Fort st.
left lane turn @ left lane turn around for North bound Fort st.
Right lane turn right @ Eureka rd.
Continue to the Yack.

Along with assorted closures close to the I 75 interchange@ Eureka Rd.

Check the state construction web site for the latest updates.

From all the comments and the people that showed up it was a great show a bunch of new stuff on display. Pretty good weather and the vendors seemed to be happy for the most part and so did the buying modelers.

I know @ 8:13pm last night we had the trailers loaded up, doors slammed shut and on the road home. The arena was ready for the circus to set up tomorrow.

Glad the weather wasn't getting as bad as fast as some of the weather guessers were predicting.

Hope everybody made it home safe and sound and hope to sell you there next year!
