This year we are adding a silent auction to the schedule. I know this is a favorite activity for many at shows and it's something that can help raise more money for the Pack.

The house we are living in now only has a 1 car garage and this shelving system that is 5x8 pretty much consumed it. So yesterday we disassembled these shelves and moved them to the new space.

For the last five years I've been coming out of my 25 year phase where I grew up as strictly an OA collector. Now I'm paying attention to other broader areas of collecting and have been toying with this idea of making topical frames. Duane has shown me what that idea looks like fully developed with a decades long collection...Read More

One thing that got me rolling on this has been a lively discussion on Patch-L this week regarding classic fakes in the hobby and some of the characters that were in the middle of it. It occurred to me that literally this is the oral history of our hobby. If I could find some people willing to type that into...Read More
