The Hampton is downtown Freeport. The down town area is dying and not much to do or eat and its definately not much to see but we have a few places to eat that are good. We have Canovas, Fieldstone, Cimminos, and a few ma n pa places. Those are my fav....good food and cheap lol

This will be our first National, I am coming with my two sons(10 and 13)and my daughter (13)
The reservation have already been made for the hotel, the NTA barbecue and the FBU banquet, we are going to be there all three days.
The kids are planning on registering for the different workshops, they are exited.
Do you have any advice for a newbie?
We will be hanging around the Tennessee Fur Harvester booth, we hope to meet a lot of people, so stop by to say hello.

Bring a good pair of walking shoes - you can put on a lot of miles at an NTA convention. If you plan on buying supplies - cash talks!!

Have fun. Your kids should have a blast.

The boss always has some interesting things to drink, provided he don't break or spill them and melt a hole in the concrete floor.

There probably still wondering what disolved the concrete in Hamburg !
