I was asked to post this info on some forums to clear up some misinformation about it.

Mr. Martin mentioned health problems. Does anyone know what they are? I've met him, but have not been in touch.

To read the fine print fellows, --WHEN LOOKING AT THE PAGE---just hold down the CONTROL KEY and hit the "+" (plus) key.
The page will get bigger- keep hitting it till you can read the print.
Do Control Key and "-" ( negative) to go back to normal

Thanks Glenn for all the work you do at NAMES. Both you and the many others on the NAMES staff use your time unselfishly ( !) so that others can enjoy the show.

Thank You on behalf of the many exhibitors who had fun last weekend !


Joe Martin has put his money where his mouth is...a rare treat in todays world, and one that particularly benefits the interests of everyone who visits this board.
We should appreciate a true supporter of skill in our trade and hobby by visiting the Museum or mentioning it to our many friends at every opportunity
Craig, Jim and Jerry were at the Sherline Booth at NAMES introducing the 2013 award winner and answering questions to all who showed interest in their fine equipment, even though Joe was unable to attend.
A word of appreciation or thanks to them is never wasted !

Rich what makes it fun and has keep me coming back is most of the great people that come to the show both the exhibitors like your self and the people that come to see and be amazed at yours and others work. It is awesome that you and the others give of your knowledge, and practical shop experience.

So far only 3 people, have said they didn't like the show or had laundry list of complaints about just everything. Of course it seems it is the same people every year, My only question to them is "If it so bad why do you come back very year?"
Hope you didn't have any more trouble with the traveling lodge on the road home.

Mr. Martin mentioned health problems. Does anyone know what they are?
I was asked about posting this and handed the copy as we were tearing down the show and the vendors and exhibitors were packing up.
