The rain stopped. Lost a brand new tent when a strong wind came through. It looked good after I set it up. Lasted about ten minutes. Got a ride to town from Justin E and bought another.

There are showers here, but not many. Two for men, two for women. All iíve found anyways.

Been a slow trickle of folks coming in all day. Work started on the demo area, and itíll be finished tomorrow.

Bring some shade if you plan to tailgate. They have the tailgating area directly across from the main building. Itís an asphalt parking lot, so itís gonna get warm.

Donna and I are set to hit the trail from south Texas to Springfield in a few hours. Should roll into the fairgrounds tomorrow.
Looking forward to seeing old (and new) friends as we do once a year at this convention.

I'm home from the convention now. Was a long week for me, but filled with a lot of good memories. Met some great people. Had a lot of fun. Now I'm exhausted and glad it's over. grin

I was able to get some of Mr. Dobbins "Skeeter Pee" at the Friday night auction. Picked up a few other nice items too, including a Joe Goodman print.

Seemed like several of the vendors did pretty good on their sales. Was a little slower than I had hoped for. Seemed like Thursday was the most busy, but people were carrying stuff out at a steady rate.

BIG Thank You to all the people who showed up from out-of-state and gave us a hand. You all are the BEST!

laugh Lee, I apologize for not introducing myself. I actually spoke with you twice. Once before the show, then again on Saturday morning. And, as always, it was very nice speaking with you. I tailgated, and was sending a few folks at you for the Death Rays and fleshing knives. I was a little short skinny fella with a long pony-tail. Met and purchased from you in Escanaba and Kansas last year. May refresh your memory a bit?

Several of you Jayhawkers showed up, and we were sure glad to have you. Even Andy Eastwood laugh bought another couple dz rebar stakes from him. Then he took the money and out-bid me on a Sterling at the Friday night auction. He whooped like he'd won the lottery, so I suppose I'm happy for him. crazy

Got to meet Ken Smith and a couple more from OK. Good folks there too.

And, yes sir, I will be in Chillicothe. I'll make a point to introduce myself and speak with you a bit. If'n you're comin to Misery again, I wouldn't miss the opportunity to shake your hand again.

I was tailgating in Springfield, slot #3, in front of the main convention building. Someone was looking at some traps I had on a table, and they left a trap in a brown paper sack. There was also some papers of different sorts left with the trap. If it belongs to you, please PM me so that we can make arrangements to get your stuff to you.

As President of the Mo Trappers Association, Iíd like to thank all who attended the NTA convention. I hope everyone enjoyed your time at the convention. We had a few kinks that come with hosting a convention at a grounds for the first time, but overall we felt it went well. We definitely drew quite a few trappers from the South.
