Here we are, just a few days out from the event and there's been no mention off this years theme. Unfortunately I'll not be able to make it this year due to some conflicts. We thought we'd let the display run itself this year and have a "Peoples Choice" theme. The tables will be set up, and the racks will be in place. If you've got a nice example of a gun that has a neat story, interesting variations, or just a great example of its grade that you'd like to share, we'd love to see it on display. Just write a description of the gun on a 3X5 card and bring it on in to the tent. We'll have some magnetic tags that we can stick on the cards, and we'll magnetically attach the cards to the top rib of your gun while it's on display.
In the past I've brought any forgotten about guns back to the hotel with me for the night, but since I'll not be there this year, we'd ask that you please pick it up at the end of the day, since we don't have overnight security in the Smith/Parker tent. If we end up with more examples than rack space, we'll show different guns on Friday and Saturday. The display will be picked up late Saturday afternoon, as many folks need to be on the road Sunday morning.
I sure hope everyone that makes it has a great time, and I look forward to seeing everyone next Spring!
