    Looking forward to seeing everyone....its shaping up to be a super show. Great lineup of judges and seminars. Thanks Bill !
  4. Awesome show lined up. Can't wait to see everyone and see some of the great mounts. The new location is fantastic.
  5. With great sadness I had to cancel my seminar on Friday night. There will be a replacement one in its place. I have some family health issues that I am dealing with so I may not be able to attend. I will do my best to make it one of the days to see every one. New shop number is 315-286-5939 Tri-Ponds Taxidermy.

    The New York show is always a blast. Karaoke sounds like it could be fun! Need to make it back there one of these days.
  8. As some of you may know I've been hospitalized for the past week. I am not getting discharged until earliest Wed . and have been told not to travel for a few days afterwards. I'm sad to say I'll need to cancel my seminar for Friday.
    I apologize to everyone for this.
    I also like to say the UTNY is a great organization who has always been there for me. Not just this past week with texts and calls of encouragement but also in the past.year When I was dealing with some personal family tragedies I received so much support from this group along with the GSTA . They are truly part of my family. I am truly blessed to have such good people as friends. Thanks you everyone , your texts PMS and phone calls cards have meant a lot.
    I will truly miss seeing all your ugly mugs and laughing so hard awhile doing the auction... Most of all just being there and seeing the talents of so many wonderful taxidermist.
    I will be back next year for sure... You all run a great show that has excitement in the air the whole weekend keep up the great work

    Was up at the NY show this weekend to judge fish and birds. I wanted thank everyone for their hospitality, I had a great time and really enjoyed viewing everyone's work. You have a great show up there and some talented artists, congratulations to all the big winners this weekend.

    I also want to also wish Kurt quick recovery as he was not feeling well this weekend.
  12. I would like to thank all the judges again for a great job. We can only get better with guidance such as yours. Even with the hiccups with seminar trouble, the show show was great as usual.
    I wish Steve and Kurt speedy recoveries. Gregg my prayers are with you and your family. And finally, Kris I am glad the deer only hurt your truck and not you.
    Thanks again to everyone.
  13. My husband and I had a great time this weekend and everyone was awesome as always. The judges and the associations board did a wonderful job!

    And DITTO on the well wishes and prayers, guys our thoughts and prayers are with you all!

  15. It was my pleasure, I just wish I could have done more. Hopefully in the future I can do just that. You have a great organization and some great leadership. Bill Dunn is a great choice for your president. He is a supper stand up guy. I am so thankful for him taking the time to watch over me at your show. I will be back to see you guys and galls again.
