I will be down Friday about noon for the entire duration.

Brochure says the show starts on Saturday.  What's going on Friday?  Anyway, I'll be there this year.

Friday is setup day. I always take friday off and setup. That way I get to say hello to everybody and see what's new. That's the only way I get to see everything. Cant get away from my tables on sat or sun.

Y'all, I will be coming up from the Great State of Texas again this year. I'll be bringing my new Forest & Gallice even though it's not done yet. Hope to see y'all there, stop by the Lone Star Engine Works booth and say Hi.

Hi Stew,
I would like to write an article for you but there's a catch. As most fellows know Saturday is usually packed with people and being an exhibitor doesn't leave much time for picture taking so if I can get some good pictures along with the ones Steve Huck's wife usually takes I will compose something for you. If someone else volunteers between now and then don't hesitate to accept their offer.

I will be there, arriving in Detroit on Thursday late afternoon so I can be around the hall ll day Friday. As others have noted its gets so busy on Saturday its hard to get around to say hello to everyone. Looks like I will be alone this year, cannot get a New England group together as we have done on past years.

'll be there Saturday and Sunday. I have nothing to show, but I'll certainly be looking.

Simon, you may laugh, but don't knock a thing until you've tried it! They even have seminars...  :)

Look me up when you get there . This is the 25th annv. of NAMES and I have made them all so far. We
have come a long ways from the 1st two shows that were held at Dominoes Farms. I have had the privilege of meeting a lot of the early model guys that are now gone. I am getting up in years, but hope to make few more models and hit a few shows before I run out of steam.
See you all at NAMES. Here's a couple more pictures.
Jim
