    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!

    Brian, it was a pleasure having you at the show this weekend. Thanks for a great job judging and the seminar. It was one of the best shows the NCTA has ever had. Thanks to all that attended and showed there support. Good to see you got home safe and plan to come next year to compete and just have a good time.

  3. I would expect nothing less from a great group of people...wish I could have made it....maybe next year.
  4. Thank you for being there. It was a great show. I don't travel out of state much to shows, but that was the best comp room I've seen. I think we had 134 entries & there was some smokin' pieces.
  5. Brian, it was nice to meet you at the show and thank you for the critique on the iguana. Will probably see you there next year.
