I missed some of the replies here for some reason.
Mike: I wanted to show something different than the usual meet impressions of many un-titled pictures and un-named people and show the fun we have at these meets.
About Bakoon: I haven't seen them at the last couple of shows. I'm not sure why that is. I do regularly see a guy there that knows them or helps them out who is helping other manufacturers at the moment, so I might ask him. The show was completely sold-out as far as table space goes though.
