@sixgill pete that's so awesome. Love the Ecphora. Say hello to @SailingAlongToo for me and enjoy the event. One of these days I'd love to come out there for this event.

Looks like a great Show/Festival!  I could swear that I saw a couple of the faces in that first picture on a recent 'America's Most Wanted' show! :D

Hi Don 

 

Good meeting up with everyone again this year.  A few pictures below.  I took a lot of pics of your and Plax's stuff but unfortunately not of any individuals.  I would have loved to have taken a pic of Dr. Ward in his umbrella hat.

Great pics Mike. Hopefully the rivers will go down soon. But, with all this rain today, who knows.

@MikeR

Ask and you shall receive. Here is the world famous (or is it infamous and notorious) Dr. Ward in his umbrella hat. Unfortunately, it's not a straight on angle but it'll do.

 

It was great seeing everyone at the festival.

Are any of the displays non-local, regional?

Like from Ohio or Kansas?

Plax

there are folks with fossils from all over the world but many of them are exclusively from the east coast or a specific region such as the Carolinas. Someone suggested more displays of Pennsuylvania fossils, for instance, because a lot of the tourists at the festival are from there or the NE region at least.

I don't know a lot about nautiloids but I do know Cenozoic specimens from NC and that complete are rare.  I'm assuming those are Eocene.
