My real job has messed up my fun for the weekend and I won't be able to make the convention this year.

I had a great time! The 2 Half-Trac meet and greet sessions went well. The first day we had 20 and the second maybe 8. Really enjoyed judging 2 great half-tracs. Thanks to Dave and Mike S. for bringing their half-tracs. Every vendor I had time to speak with had positive comments and were SELLING  ;D . The weather was pleasant until Saturday when it did get very warm and humid.
 Thanks to the MVPA KILROY affiliate for another great show at Louisville.

We had a great time as well. Dozens of really nice MV’s and scads of vendor’s tables. I found quite a few items to spend money on for my half track. It was really good to see people I already knew and also to meet in person some of the folks I’ve conversed with on this site. Dave Morrison was kind enough to let me crawl all over his M2A1 to take some detailed photos to help sort out how parts of mine are supposed to go together. The two half track meetings were informative and a lot of fun. Thanks again to Kevin for coordinating all of that and many thanks to MVPA Kilroy. It was a great event!

It was a good show. There were three halftracks there. The meeting went well, I picked up a couple of tips. It sounds like the guys in Texas have a decent supply of halftracks 8). Also, it was good to talk with some of the folks from the forum.
 
Thanks to Kevin for putting the meetings together and The Kilroy chapter for hosting the show.
