Just got home from the NCTA show and all I can saw is wow! Most shows I've attended end up with 8 to 15 fish and reptile pieces, but I had the pleasure of judging 31 pieces and a few habitats. I think they had over 130 entries total. There were a lot of really nice pieces there and I really enjoyed helping out. I would like to thank Vince and the entire board for the great hospitality and the professionalism they showed throughout the entire show. Everyone I talked with made me feel right at home. It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to judge along side of Gene, Jim and Brenda. What a humbling experience! We all got along very well and I made some really good friends. The dedication to Chris Barnhart and his family was a beautiful thing to experience. Congrats to all of the winners Thanks for the experience!
