    Pictures from the Old Drawbridge Show

    One of my favorite regionals in the past was the Southern Ohio Regional. For many years, this show was held at Drawbridge Hotel in Ft. Mitchell, KY. For this reason, regular attenders of this show typically called it Drawbridge.

    Unfortunately, the Drawbridge Hotel closed at the end of 2012, and left the regional organizers scrambling to find a new venue. The show is now held in Wilmington, OH. The new venue is in many ways better, but lacks much of the charm of the old.

    Here are some photos from April 2012, the last time the show was held at Drawbridge.

    Which one is you?
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Being the photographer has its advantages...one of which is that I can avoid being in the pictures :)

    The last photo is of my table, with my usual table partner.
