    the one i'm bringing #1 was roadkill, it was never meant for competition, it was meant for practice....but it's the only one I had a form laying around for so, it's what i've got to work with! #2 it's also the first time i've ever mounted this species solo (hence why the skin was for practice heehee). I'm sure i'll learn a LOT from the critique, that's what i'm looking forward to! I could care less about the ribbons n stuff, some people get into that sort of thing, i'm not really one of those people. At any rate, when the waterworks stop we'll have to grab a glass of wine or two and wash it all away LOL, but overall i'm sure everything will be fine!

    Mikey- travel safe!!

    Janna- it'll be better than fine, you'll do awesome. I don't drink, so I'll be your dd or d walker/shoulder or what ever;) I'm no ribbon hound either- just like the advice to improve myself. I'm still too green to be a hounder!

    DD works lol, you'll love driving my car ;) heehee it's fast...and it's comfy! Same here with being green (i started learning in '03), i'll get to all that ribbon-flashing stuff in a few years...like ten lol. Right now i just want to absorb EVERYTHING so I can offer a broader range of services once I learn where all the customers are at down here!

    Guys and Gals, it's almost show time. I recieved a phone call today that I think bears passing on. People are coming in caravan's. The turn out is apparently going to be stronger than I expected. So here's what I am asking, just so I can be prepared.

    I had to place my order with the winery for the number of banquet meals yesterday. I ordered 75 meals. After this mornings phone calls, that may not be enough. So, if you plan to attend as a competitor and/or wish to attend the banquet PLEASE either call me at 618-669-2518, pm me here, or e-mail me at [email protected] PLEASE

    I don't want to leave anybody out, nor do I want to be unprepared.

    I can tell you this, the competition is going to be a strong one. Lots of folks are coming.

    Tim, watch for a package coming to your place. (( Box of paint.)) Paul B. must have forgot about us so I went ahead and ordered paints for us to use. Hopefully Paul gets our messages, I really wanted every to try his paints.

    I decided to do a little extra. I will be showing them how to paint Jeff's eyes.

    Ok this is a totally female thing, I am trying to pack and was wanting to know if the banquet is dressy. I don't want to show up in jeans and a t-shirt and find most everyone dressed up or be dressed up and find most in jeans and t-shirts. Like I said... a female thing but would kind of like to know since I have never stayed at any of the other conventions banquets. Tim..I am going to be at the banquet but my husband is still unsure if he can make it.
     
  17. It's a touchy subject, Ittybit. It is a banquet, and not a summer picnic. That being said, you have your right to wear what you want, and most people do.

    Yeah I think he is.
    He talked with Tim and was to send paint for the guys in the class and possibly an airbrush to auction off. I don't think Tim has received anything or heard from him yet. :-\ So I bought some paint and had it shipped to Tim to cover our butt. LOL
