12th Annual Model Engineering Show

Waltham, Massachusetts

16 February 2008

Our 12th annual show has come and gone.  Attendance was good both from the exhibitor side and the public side of the tables.

The amount of work that goes into setting up even a small show like ours is awesome and I extend a sincere "thank you" to all who took part in the effort.
