Hello,

My name is Ryan. I'm Jared's cousin and I have shown up to a few meetings this year (long hair).

I would like to display some medieval stuff at the Winkler Toy and Hobby Show. I will be able to be there all day on Saturday, November 15th.

Is it all right that I come?

Thanks,
Ryan

Looks great!  I like the invite on the MBLUG logo - a good way to get word out to see our display.  You always go the extra mile to make a successful show.

I love those preview pics. My mouth would be watering if I walked by that space in the mall.

My footprint is going to be 64x128.

Whoops. I realized that those big grey baseplates are 48x48 (not 64x64).

My footprint is 48x96 studs.

I actually counted this time!
