Our 2015 show has come and gone, and what a show it was! And while we're sad that it can't last, there's next year's show on the way. We will fill you in on the details as time goes by and we begin to narrow them down, so check back often to find out what's happening!  We are looking for volunteers to help out at the show!  Please email Bob Lund at This email address is being protected from spambots.
