Wow, looks like a lot of work went into this, that is, more than usual? Lots of wonderful vendors and prizes!

I'd like to help a few new members get involved so....

I'll give 10 acorns each to the first three new members to reply to this post!

Okay, that's it for me for shaking the ol' oak tree! My three new members have replied.

BUT, it looks like some others are giving out acorns to new members so maybe keep on replying here?

Wishing everyone really good luck with the NARR, and thanking the vendors and @dave for making it wonderful. Thumbs up
