I know where that is, my folks live up that way. Prices chased me away last
time I was there before I spent much time to look around. Actually was "tour
guide" for a group of the RRfriends when we made a circular day long trip
covering about 7 shops. Guess I will have to go look again and see what they

only can make it there once every 4-6 months as it is just out of the way for

kind of display will be there.

- Hi Pete,

Richmond show. In the meantime I suggest that you invite fellow
Z scalers within driving distance to your event to consider
displaying their work. This is a good opportunity for you to meet
with fellow members and to create a bigger impact with the
public. I have heard somewhere that there is strength in
