    of the APG for $25.00 a year. Membership forms will be at the table.
    If you want to order anything from the 'store' and have it held for
    pick up, let Mike know and he will put is aside.

    If anyone has any questions, please post.

    We are on the home stretch and the show will be here in no time.

    while your at the show there is a lot to see and do, AND there
    is a ton of shopping around the hotel. it's pretty much walking

    Hi Guys any photos of the APG Show available yet ?
  8. PeteC Member

    The APG show was a big success! The auction raised $12k for historical preservation! The battlefield tours of Fredricksburg and Chancellorsville were worth the trip alone. Although I didn't make it for Doug Cohen's painting class, I heard that was great and even went into overtime. Anyone else have a good time?
  9. Robert Dominick Member

    Dang! I cant believe I missed the show. I live right down the road now!
  10. penster Active Member

    Congratulations from the SCAHMS club to David Hood for winning the SCAHMS sponsored award for "Best Western Expansion" with his "Lewis and Clark" vignette.
    Hey does anyone have photos yet? I particularly need a photo of this piece by David Hood. I would like to post a photo with the award on the SCAHMS website.
    Thanks for your help! Wish I could have been there!

    Hi Everyone,

    I am just going to post a short note to say this was the best
    show the APG has put on so far.
    Having awards, actual medals, was nice.
    Thank you for your kind words, It was a lot of work but it was fun.
    David Oswalt did a great job as show chair. John Jefferies was
    great as Vendor chair and Mike taking the lead on the tours and
    the guest speaker on Saturday night was fantastic. Frank did the
    tours also.
    We had some volunteers, which really helped us out and I hope I don't
    forget anyone.
    Kevin Dunne for getting some guys to 'man' the door into the Surrender
    Document, so we had no food or drinks go in.
    Vern Minkwitz's wife Margaret for helping us out a bit at Registration/General
    Admission, Michael Saggs's, wife, Michelle for also helping us out at the table.
    Dave Peschke filled in for Bob Langenberg for Judging.
    For all of those folks that sponsored Speciality Awards.

    Thanks Kevin to you and your wife helping David and I break down the
    tables. oops... thanks to John J. also for helping .

    The tables were full and some really great pieces.

    Sorry, I said this would be a short note.
    We will try to either post here or on the APG website the awards list.

    Thank you everyone who attended and made this a great show, of course,
    could not have done it without you. Thanks for the support.

    Sorry, made a mistake on the note for judging.
    Dave filled in for Jon Harbuck. Sorry Jon.

    Our 'Security" detail for the Surrender Document was:
    John Espy, Richard Rock, Bart Muller and of course Kevin Dunne.
    Thanks guys.

    Also, I did leave out Dave Wiggins for helping us out also at
    the Registration and General Admission table. sorry about that Dave.

    As you can tell I cut/pasted from the other forum.
    Picture links are on the other forum, posted by a couple of people. So check it out there please.

    Working on a show in another locations can be challenging, but it was fun. We had a lot of support and everyone pitched in
    to make is a great success. it has not been decided yet about another show and where it will be. So stay tuned.
    Frank O-Rilley did a fantastic job on the tours from what I hear, he was also our guest speaker on Saturday night,
    and WOW I was so impressed with him as a speaker. He really holds your interest.
    Frank did the tours and I heard only rants and raves about it.

    The Surrender Document was really something to see. Uniforms were in the same room along with the Medical box from the
    National Park Service. Great artifacts to see up close.

    Heard nothing but good things about Doug Cohen's class and it was nice he was able to go back after dinner to continue to paint.
    Mike Hall's seminar was full also.

    I think everyone had a great time and I met a few new folks too.

    Thank you everyone who attended, YOU made the show a great success.
