Al is one of the great men of the hobby / business, and the type of fellow that would talk to you a supermarket of gas station about the hobby.... Little surprise that he was as usual swamped, and yes I did get to talk to him again this year.... Kudos to Al and Televue for what they have done for the hobby.

Well let me give you a different way to score NEAF, look at the tread numbers and posts in this forum, compared to 2011, and 2012 shows.... This years show so far has around 5-10% of the post show post count....
I'm not sure that this is a fair metric. For a number of years, Cloudy Nights and Astronomics took on an ever-increasing role at NEAF. That resulted, understandably, in a lot of chatter here. With that role abrogated this year, one would expect less discussion on the site.
