Smile MVPA 2018 Convention

Became a MVPA member back in the 80s but had never been to a national meet till this weekend. Flew in to Louisville from Tampa.

Had a good time and was pleasantly surprised by M715s right inside the main doors. Almost had to wipe away a tear.

Got to meet Beast for the 1st time and KyKen for the 3rd time. Lots of fun had by all. Tripped over a fording kit and Ken and Dave helped make sure it was the right variant.

Hope to find another national show planned close by to attend!

And Ken got me to the airport for my return flight!!

Hope you made it home ok! Great seeing you again.
Flying in for the one day is one heck of an effort! Glad you had a good time.

My buddy was Jim and his 52' M37. It was great to meet all you guys and put faces with names from here on the Zone. And here are a few more pics of blue/green.
