SOOOOOOO much iron, and good friends....Boy I miss that. Saw a few pieces I'd like to add to the collection. It will have to wait until next convention.

First pic-extender for the Griswold rabbit mold on the Hickling's Favorites tables
Second pic-Grady Britt brought material from Chattanooga to whet everyone's appetite for next year's convention.
Third pic-JR and Diana Doffin's Favorite table-the Erie stovepipe shelves were quite impressive and helped gain them second place in the Favorites displays.

Some pics from Cal and Ann Smith's impressive display of trivets and ashtray/spoon rest skillets that garnered them third place in Favorites displays.

Works just fine for me Daniel.  Thanks to all for the great pictures.  Hope to see many of you next year.  Is the date set?

My smaller (than Dennis's) set of pics are here:

I made the album public, so essentially anyone can see them.  There are not too many compromising shots...

Hi!  This is Andy Robillard from the Chicago area.  I'd like to echo everyone's feelings and say that the convention was a great time!  It was great to meet everyone and it was really gratifying to find everyone so kind, warm and open to sharing advice and experiences.

The cookout on Thursday night was really impressive - several people worked very hard to make it a lot of fun, especially Roger and Randy.

Thank you to everyone for welcoming me and being so friendly!
