The 4th Annual Meet at the Museum is over. We couldn't have wished for more perfect weather. It was sunny and in the hi 70's every day. The last of the collectors left yesterday around 4 pm after three days of fans, fellowship, laughter, food, drink, and fun. Early arrivals on Wednesday were George, Chris, and Jim. We put them to work helping set up the tables and chairs. The meet saw a lot of new faces visiting, along with fan collectors from Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Ohio, Nebraska, North Carolina, Georgia, and Indiana. The Museum was open every day until late, as was the shop. The tent was full of fans to buy or just look at, as was a lot of non fan stuff. A huge Thank you goes out to Chris Smith for manning the grill all three days, along with George and Jim for helping set up. I was busy all thru the meet and didn't think to take any pictures so hopefully those that did will post some here. In closing, Tom, Eddie, Christy, and myself appreciate everyone who made it to the meet this year. We hope you had a good time and we look forward to hosting the 5th Annual (sort of)  Meet @ the Museum next year. Mark your calendars for the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday after Labor day 2022 and we hope you can make it here. Thanks again everyone!

Thank you very much Kim and all. One day when I'm not a 9 to 5er I'll come down and help. Great to catch up with folks. Everyone looked happy which was nice. The Eck ball motor Carelton displayed was amazing. I never saw Chris laugh so hard as when the wife told the story about the cigar lighter stand. Fun day.

Red Tail Hawk visited the Fanimation event this weekend! Heard about the fans and nailed the mouse about 20 feet from my truck! Said he will be back next year!

Sorry Mike. Your wife had me rolling. That was a funny story. As always you brought some cool stuff for us to see. It was great to see everyone, had a good time. Thank you to the Fanimation family for putting on a great meet.
