Since a picture is worth 1000 words, I’ll save the text and let you look at these slideshows:

WOW! Just incredible! All the displays looked totally fascinating! You guys are extreme! It was also great seeing the pics of everyone. Nice to put a face to everyones name. I hope they add that to the forum down the road.

I saw GOBS of cool stuff on those tables. Next year I hope to make it. If I can’t find a critter sitter, I’m going to have to bring them with me. Does the hotel allow lemurs?

Jason–Bring the Tiger with you. Charge $10.00 to get your picture taken with the Tiger. Bet you could make enough to pay for your trip. to St. Louis!!!

So true! I think I would need a GAGGLE of attorneys for that :-) Their would be allot of 1 arm pictures taken that day :-) Just kidding. Maybe I could book a floor of rooms.

The funny thing is that I have actually slept in many hotel rooms with tigers and other big cats. Maybe if I can connivence the hotel a tiger is ammo?

I thought that Ron meant bring your Tiger Tank and I wondered why you said 1 arm pictures, I mean a static Tiger Tank can’t be that dangerous…then I read on and the penny dropped…you mean a Tiger, Tiger :-)

Armourer–No, I meant a real Tiger. In case you do not know it, Jason is in charge of a Wildlife Reservation in Florida and has LOTS of large animals, including Tigers.


#8

Next year I’d drive up in Noah’s Ark! All kidding aside, I am dying to see one of these shows and one of Pepper’s as well as the other displays, 1st hand. MORE PICS! MORE PICS!

Pepper announced that he will NOT be doing a display next year.

Of course, no one will complain if he changes his mind about that…


#10

Bummer, but I can only imagine the amount of time and energy it takes to create such comprehensive displays as his. They are just amazing. Of all of them (that I know of), I wish I saw his flechette display.
