        There will be no operating boat pond at this years show. Some of the Directors have attended and have been having discussions with one of the local RC/boat clubs. Depending on how this years turn out from the club or clubs if some members of the other boat clubs come. The possibility of a operating boat pond FOR NON LIVE STEAM may come about for next year.

          I was told at our last club meeting that miniature firearms, artillery etc. are not allowed this year because of the shootings that have taken place in the last few months. Is this true or just more BS being passed around. Hopefully not considering the percentage of the show that they make up.

            I will be posting the complete exhibitors rules and information. I can say that it had nothing to do with the recent events, but some kind of past indecent at the Yack from another show!
            What the city/arena management has said,"that no model guns that can be fired, be made to fire,or LIVE AMMUNITION will be permitted at the Yack arena. Additionally, all knives must be in cases or sheathed.Exposed or loose knives will not be allowed in the arena."
            This is what is printed on the exhibitors info sheets.
            We did have a problem with somebody in Ohio that had some knives and swords etc. that was waving them around and he had to be removed. since Toledo has a very strict law on what can be shown and done with edged weapons.
            Now the only other major change is EXHIBITORS SETUP WILL BEGIN AT 9:00AM ON FRIDAY,APRIL 19TH- EXHIBITORS WILL NOT BE ADMITTED TO THE HALL FOR SET UP BEFORE 9:00AM ON THE 19th.

              For the people thinking of attending the course, to let you know the course book has been redone so it is is all new and about 240 some pages. Filled with photo's drawings and lots of info on the equipment that it covers, high quality printing. There isn't any wood cutting include in the course. Registration and fee must be received by February 15th 2013.

                Here is the latest updates, and exhibitors info sheets for those that didn't get them.

                Again the biggest change will be that NO ONE will be allowed to set up before the scheduled day! Since last year to many people were there and the city took notice of the people set up and visiting on the floor during set up. They said that if it continues, they will have to start charging the rental fee for the arena. So please do not come and try to get in.

                This year you have to be registered before you unload either as a vendor or exhibitor. No button/no registration, you will be escorted form the arena.

                Also there will be a strict unload and move your vehicle at the loading dock. This is for both exhibitors and vendors.

                To address some emails that I have received. I do not know what vendors will be at others shows! I am only affiliated with N.A.M.E.S. as a volunteer I have been told that they have 38 already paid vendors booth/tables sold for the N.A.M.E.S. 2013 show.

                I would suggest that anybody interested in the fact if a vendor will be at any other shows, that they contact the vendor directly and ask. That way there will be no misunderstandings, or miscommunications or other! You will have it from the vendor's them self.

                Remember to ask for the discount at the hotels, motels for the show weekend. As some have said they will give one, after registration show them the button.

                There is still a couple seats open in this years Steam course, contact Jim Snider his info is under the post on the steam course.




                And finally for those that like to plan ahead: Show dates for the next couple of years.
