Jim, Thank you for your first-timer review! I first attended in October 2017 and was able to go again last April! I live in Northwestern Pennsylvania, so it is about a 4 1/2-hour drive for me. I stayed overnight both times. I am looking forward to going back since I wasn't able to the last two meets. I didn't buy a lot each time; my hobby budget isn't that big. I really had a great time meeting many of the folks from the Forum in person for the first time. Meeting friends who I only know from here face to face is huge in my opinion!!
