    JEEZ! Heath must have really been hyped up from the show. I barely was able to drag myself to bed LOL!

    I have to say I had a great time at the show and that it is too dang short.

    I am proud to be involved with the group of people I am on this board now. I cannot think of a better group of people I have worked with before AT ANYTIME IN MY LIFE. I look forward to making sure ROD TENNANT, our new president, has just as much trouble with me as I did with him......but it was ALWAYS good trouble.

    A few of us are meeting in an hour to start on NEXT YEAR's show. We are that excited about the things we have in store for the Ohio Taxidermists Association.

    I got to meet several people fron Taxi-Net including "*" who is a very like minded individual.....except he still has his hair...... and he is telling the truth about his mount. We have more trouble handling some of the gameheads than we do did that giant piece. Thanks for bringing that incredible piece......in fact bringing it to a venue directly across the parking lot from the OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY HORSESHOE.

    I will post more about the show later.....but I just wanted to get my 2 cents in before this thread b got any longer.

    Yes Paul again had some awesome mounts, the fisher caught my eye immediately, very nice, Paul too was VERY deserving of his numerous wins at this show.

    Thanks for the compliments guys. It really means a lot when you get compliments like those from your peers.
    Heath, those pics kinda show what I would look like with a ZZ Top, Amish-style beard. I guess I don't have to wonder now! And NO, I won't be growing one anytime soon.
    Thanks again for a great show and thanks to OTA for the incredible Medallions by Cary "The Master" Cochran---truly works of art!

    OH....Randal....you can send those "pics" we were looking at the other night to me any time you want. A little "comic relief" never hurt anyone.

    I'll PM you my email address.

    I will also like to thank the many competitors for coming to the OTA show this year. There was same outstanding work there. Thanks for bringing the Elk and Cougar mount Dennis it has inspired me to start working on something for next year. Plus us Ohio boys need to work a little harder to keep those medallions in Ohio. But its nice to see some new faces. Congrats to all the winners and hope to see everybody back next year.
    Thanks Jett
