    Harley,
    I don't know???? I talked to Ross on the phone the other night, and told him I had a westen painted to do, but I stayed up all night to mount it and don't know if it will be dry. My daughter is shooting indoor nationals this weekend in KY, and time is running REALLY short. I should have started months ago. It's very posible that I won't have anything to bring. Plan on working straight through from tues. afternoon till Thurs. night to bring something. I should be able to finish a customers deer at least.
    I'll sleep through a bird seminar.
     
  8. We talked? I thought that was a nightmare ;D I didn't feel the best the next day, since I only got 5 hours of sleep. :mad:
     
  9. BTW, I forgot to ask Harley where the show was, Justin.

    That was a nightmare russ. A what the hell man? 5 hours? thats what I get a week!
    Harley, the show is in springfield, at the northfield center on the north end of springfield. Take the sangamon exit off I55 turn right on Dirksen(first light), then turn right at Lowe's.
    If you get lost, don't go see my wife for directions, she's packing a 40.

    Cooler temps suck!!! I need to do some painting on my base OUTSIDE!! Paint doesn't like to dry when its 45 degrees and misting rain. I guess I'll have to do it in the shop and hope I don't blow myself up.

    Note to self: Turn off pilot light in shop.

    Gee I may have to send something with Tim or Harley. Harley I thought you were going to Ohio like me? Tim or Harley do you think you can enter a mount for me in the Masters if I give you the money to pay my dues and register it for me since you are going? That way I can have pieces in 3 shows this weekend. Might as well take Andy O's advice and try to do three shows at once.... :p You will have to bring my mount back to your shop too if you don't mind so I can pick it up when I get back home. Sounds like all the shows (Illinois, Ohio, Iowa and Kansas) are going to be big next week.
     
  16. Why don't you just stay at home and read the archives, and have your local trophy shop make you some awards and ribbons?

    You guys in Illinois have a really good state show. I used come every year when I worked at Buckeye. I can actually say I miss coming to it !! Back then it your show was in the top 3 state shows that we traveled to. Was hoping to get back there one of these years but now it is the same weekend as ours here in Ohio. But still , you guys run a good show out there.
