    No no no .... NO! That was the belief early on, but it was quickly (?) realized that COVID is airborne.

      That's right every droplet has a very tiny set of wings and they fly into your mouth. Well that's a load of BS but considering what the anti-vaxers believe it might be true to some.

      I would have thought that it would be cancelled or forced to be cancelled by the guv'ment considering how fast the latest strain is spreading.

          I attended Saturday as an exhibitor. As expected, due to Covid-19, the show was much smaller then years past. There were quite a few open exhibitor spaces. However, given the circumstances, I would say there was a decent amount of spectators.

          Both the exhibitors and spectators were a pleasure to interact with. It’s just a really great group of people that attend this show and I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest.

          Unfortunately, I did not take any pictures.

            Three of us made the 3-hour round trip on Friday. Given the circumstances, there were more vendors, exhibitors, and attendees than I expected. It was worth the trip, but all three of us were ready to drive back by 1:30.

            By then I'd bought and seen everything I wanted. Partly this was because I've been maybe 20 times in the past, and they don't change that much from year to year. But I usually find some things I "need," and I'll make repeated visits to some of the tables. This year, though, some of my favorite vendors weren't there, and for whatever reason I spent less than $50 on new-found treasures. Also, I've always spent a lot of time at the auction in the past, and this year I just didn't care for the new, on-line format. I walked quickly through the auction hall and left. I have no desire to go through the rigamarole of using a smart phone or computer to bid on an item right in front of me.

            All things considered, though, it was a good show. George and I talked for a bit about kayaks and stripper canoes.

              If more people knew about the stripper canoes, attendance would have been much better

                We were working with half the people we planned on so Dave Brush (Live Steam editor) and I kept busy the entire show and I didn't get much of a chance to wander around. Friday was relatively busy but Saturday had far more attendees. Not quite as busy as previous shows, but not far off and far more people than I expected.

                The view from our booth on Saturday. We were located close to the entrance.

                This was looking in the large exhibit and vendor hall behind our booth. As you can see, some exhibitor tables in the center are bare.
