- It was a pleasure to meet up with you as well, Jeff. Besides Jeff, other hobby luminaries included Ken Potter, Al Raddi, Mike Howard (CONECA's treasurer), and Mark Lighterman. The club table was pleasantly busy. I only spent about 2 hours at the CONECA table as I had a lot to see in my two days at the show.
