    Pics coming soon when we get them all together. Please add any you have to this post. What a show. 196 entries. A huge thanks to all of the out of state support, 10 states represented! Every seminar was packed because of the knowledge that was provided by Bill Neuman, Clint Rickey, Mike Nakielski, Cole Cruickshank, Todd Kranau, Jonathan Wright, Jimmy Lawrence, and Daniel Meng.

    The Joe Meder Master of Masters category entries were just plain humbling. Joe was there to hand out his award to 3rd place Don Frank, 2nd place Greg Cuvelier, and winner Marcus Detring. Mike Nakielski, Brett Wingfield, Todd Kranau, Jonathan Wright, and Carmen Helmer also brought amazing works of art in this prestigious division that only the elite even qualify to compete in.

    The number of Akeley medallions people in attendance had was unreal. What an honor they came in support of our show. Going to be hard to top this show, but we already have plans in the works for even more learning opportunities next year. Now I need to sleep for 2 days.

    Carolin, This thread is to celebrate the work that was brought to our 2018 show and nothing else. Please leave this post just as that.

    I'd be happy to discuss this with you privately or on another thread. Thank you.
