This is just a reminder the NAMES Show is this weekend at the Seagate Convention Center in Toledo, Ohio.

I just got back from dragging my first load of junk over, and the new location is a very major improvement over the previous locations.

It is one open area with vendors and displays in the same area. Plenty of room and wide aisles. It is big enough that Clarence Meyers has the Lady Gayle on display. That is his 30' steam launch.

Dang! All the kids are coming over to help me move on Saturday. I had planned on going to NAMES that day. Changed things around and unless I break my leg or throw my back out I will be there Sunday.

Charlie, I'll give it a try.

There were some photos of it in Live Steam about a year ago. Clarence hosted a steam in in Toledo, and it was in that write up.

Hey Jim,

Do you happen to have any info on the seminars scheduled? The NAMES website says they are still finalizing the schedule. They really need to do a better job of maintaining their website.

Unfortunately, the steam seminar ran from the 17th to today.

The old website is no longer active. The new one is;
