    I wanted to thank the NEAT organization for running a great show. I have never competed in an atmosphere where everyone was so helpful a friendly. It was a great example of what our industries competitions should strive for. The quality of work at this show was outstanding and really motivating. I had a great time and learned a lot along the way. Being my first year in the organization I also got to meet a great group people. It has been 20 years since I have competed, but I will definitely be back and look forward to participating with this group in the future.

    If there are others in the northeast interested in trying a competition, they should really consider joining this group. I think a lot of taxidermists in our area would have a great time and learn a lot along the way.

    Brian, Thanks for attending and sharing your fantastic work with us. Congrats on all of the hardware. I felt like i was calling out your name most of the evening, Saturday. lol. Also thank you for the kind words about our association and convention. We strive to try to run a fun family oriented weekend packed with information.

    Ryan,
    Glad to have you back on the BOD.

    Rick,
    Although I didnt have the honor to meet you personally, I would like to thank you for your generousity. The gentleman that won it at auction is fairly new to taxidermy and this is a great opportunity for him to learn from one of the best.

    To all others. Thank you for a great show. Although we do our best to run the show the way we do, it is our membership and their passion for the art and industry that make it a success. I personally feel that the officers and board are only a small part of what makes our show a great success every year.

    Thanks Scott, it has been a long time since I have been critiqued by a group of my peers. I'm glad you liked some of the work I brought along. There was a lot of great work at the show. I was really impressed with the quality of work in all categories at this show. It just demonstrates what a great job this organization has done helping everyone improve.

    Next year I will have to bring the kids along. I told my daughters about the show and the oldest is already saying she wants to do a piece for next years show. It is the first time I ever heard her express a desire to learn taxidermy! :)

    Thats Great. My son mounted the fox. He has been helping me in the shop since he was 2 1/2.He mounted his first animal at 5 and has been on a roll ever since. Hes already bugging me to let him start his next piece. We need to get more kids involved. We may even have a kids seminar next year.
