Thanks. Brent.
I expected this would be the case.
Makes no sense to put on a show if everyone is advised to stay away. We were looking forward to the trip.

I too was very much looking forward to the entire event.... including the 700 mile drive each way and the visit to the Ed Laginess family hosted event held in the middle of their awesome antique engine collection.

Since we won't be attending this year, here are my videos of Ed's Old Iron Works from our 2018 visit during NAMES.

We are very fortunate that Ed is such a nice guy! What a great time it was seeing his collection  8)
