Sorry I haven't chimed in here lately. I've been on a crazy work schedule this month. Once I get past the current track test I'm at (I'm in Nashville right now, man is it cold!) I'll be contacting everyone who has expressed interest in exhibiting and get the scopes and layout finalized.

The order has been placed and the graphics are being finalized for the banners. Daniel Landis from here on the forum has done an outstanding job with this banner. It will be 15' x 4' and spread across both rear walls of the booth. I will post the picture as soon as it gets it's final tweaks from Daniel.

It is just outstanding!

OK, the tweaking is done and Daniel Landis has made final approval of the artwork. It is now in production. It will be done in less than 6 days and shipped. Actually there are two banners. One is 15' x 4' the other is 7 1/2' x 2'. I want to thank Daniel for the incredible amount of work and time he put into this. These banners can be used year after year to really give us a presents at the show. Job well done Daniel!

Cost of the two banners was just under $200. I think that is reasonable for the quality they are. The printer used is a commercial vinyl printer at 1000 dpi. full photographic quality. I can't wait to see them.

That is spectacular! Does this mean I have to bring my 52" LG instead of my 27" iMac?

Nice Job!

We were looking for a quester or two as someone could not make the NEAF show this year and couldn't bring theirs. I contacted Questar and they agreed to bring the one in their lobby for us. It is a #1-1079 3.5" from 1964. Case and all and supposedly superb optics.

No, we are not having a drawing!
