For those who say that attendance was "thin". Here are a some recent comments by Al Nagler about the show. Al was SO busy, he didn't even have time to walk the floor. Something he has always been able to do during past shows.



"FYI, Tele Vue dealers did very well in sales at NEAF, with some reporting best-ever results:)"

Guys,

"First, biggest kudos to the TEAM! It was a joy to participate this year. I'm only sorry I didn't have time to get around and say hello to all the vendors. I suggest we send an appreciative thank you e-mail to all vendors"

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....

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.

Yes I did also speak to him and David and had Judy take a picture of us holding up my signed copy of Astronomy magazine. Class guy for sure!

RAC-INC and NEAF are a 501(3)© organization. Because it is, ALL numbers, attendence figures, gross revenue and profits will be available for public scrutiny. ALL of it will be posted as soon as the number crunchers have finalized them.

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.
