Modelers Alliance Goes to Omaha

I set out for Omaha last Monday and after a short stint at the inlaws we arrived on Wednsday.  Thursday morning with registration completed the fun began.  The kids hit the make and take tables and I headed for the model room.  By the end of the day Friday nearly 2500 models had been placed and the competition was stiff.  I met up with Joe(Leopard2) and we had a short talk and on Saturday we talked to  Bob and Susan Letterman, but didn't get a picture.  I spent two days doing recon of the vendor rooms, which there were three, packed to the walls.  Waited until Saturday to do my buying and I am proud to say I didn't pay full price for anything.  It was lets make a deal time.  I will post pictures of my treasure in the near future.  I took a lot of pictures, but not of everything just too many models.  I will be posting my pictures in their proper forum soon.  Saturday evening we attended the awards dinner where many awards were given out one being to the Region 5 director my good friend Kelly Quirk.
We took the kids for their first formal dinner and had a great time.
But the best part was that my kids took top honors with their models.  My daughter Victoria took a first place for her Airbus model.
My son Curtis got a first place for his Star Trek Enterprise-E.
I managed a third place with my sherman walker.  The main thing is that we all had a great time and we are all looking forward to the next time we can attend the nationals.
