    Matt, first let me thank you for taking the time and effort to post our exciting schedules and vendor lists here on the Forums. I heard it said in a movie line somewhere that,"...there is nothing stronger than the heart of a volunteer." You personify that line for us and I can't tell you how much we all appreciate it. I do look forward to meeting you very much at the show along with so many other NTA members / Taxi-netters.

    NTA President Joel Edwards has reported to have procurred the much appreciated assistance of the Illinois Taxidermist Association with regards to loaning us their backboards. Thank you very much Illinois!
    In the late 1890's your home state was the birth place of the most illustrious museum diorama the world has ever seen at that point in time...Akeley's Four Season Deer Groups. It was there when the timeless marriage of accurate habitat design and scientific taxidermy were happily galvanized for all time afterwards. Quite a significant contribution to say the least.

    It's only an ordinary white starling. (And not "white" white ... more of a dirty white / pale beige, but I digress ...)
    What the heck is a mountain starling? Maybe I would want one if I knew what it was, but I've never heard of such a thing.

    ;) ;) ;)

    Wow is there going to be a show with 5 resignations? :eek: Did the ITA really offer their backboards to the NTA? Full of surprises. Sure am glad to see all the great communication on taxi net about the NTA finally. ;)
