    I'm pretty sure they are working on it. It was stated at the show that this was the largest NTA ever with 240 mounts, so they may be a bit overwhelmed trying to make sure the pics and response will do the show justice.

    Sounds like a great show and from the pictures, there was some truly excellent work on display there. Not sure if it was the "largest NTA ever" as I seem to recall shows with more entries, but that doesn't take away from the quality it sounds like was on display here. Well done, NTA.

    Hi George, just to set the record straight, I never said it was the "largest NTA ever", but the largest number of competition entries in 12 years. In 2007, there were 283 entries at the Louisville, Kentucky convention. Since then, the numbers have been less than 200 until this year.

    Ken, Cory made that remark, not you. It's not a big deal as I doubt many people here ever experienced the NTA back in its heyday. Just wanted THOSE people to know what once was and there's a lot of ground to be made up still ahead. I think Minneapolis had almost 600 and it seems that either Birmingham and Waco had almost 400.

    Yea, i must have mistaken what they were saying at the convention. Sorry for that, but it was a rather large NTA.
