    Ohio Show Registration

    I just wanted to know if I can register by phone to help ease registraion at the show. I know any registrations the desk has completed before hand is helpful. I would send it in, but I'm worried it may be too late.

    Just wait to until you get to the show. I would not send it in at this point. It may not get there in time, It should not be that big a deal to register when you get there. See ya then!

    Dennis, how fun/hard is that elk and cat mount to pack and haul to a show? I'm sure you got to have some pieces that are detachable. Also, how tall is that mount? Looks great by the way!
