I want to thank everyone who came to our model show. There were 250 models on the table (give or take a few) and the vendors seemed to be doing a brisk business. Car modelers made an especially strong showing, putting 85 models on the tables, pulling ahead of the armor and airplane camps for the first time in a while.
The food service class at Beattie offered to sell food at the show as a class fund raiser, and even though "coffee and donuts" got lost in translation, they made up for that minor omission with burgers and hot dogs and sausages fresh off the grill, all at extremely reasonable prices that seemed to be well received. The lounge space was also a bit of a SNAFU - we had arranged for a room at the school for just that purpose, but no one thought to put up a sign to let everyone know it was there. Next year we'll add "Sign Chairman" to the list of jobs.
Which of course brings us to next year's TRICON. We'll be back at Beattie, next spring, March 22nd 2014. Watch this space for details (car modelers can count on a best Ford Mustang special award to mark the 50th anniversary). And we'd love to hear what you think of the show (add a comment to this message or can send me email at email@example.com).
