    Ries Tripods tells me they plan to have a display table (Ries History?) and a sale table. And, for you large format people, No promises, but Paul Ries's Grandsons have told me they plan to attend the show and meet Spencer and Debbie Hughes, who have owned Ries for the last 2 years or so. (Paul Ries was the inventor of the Ries tripod which was first marketed in 1936.)

    This should be an interesting "mini event," especially for Ries tripod owners. I suspect the grandsons (and the Hughes) would like to meet any Ries owners.

    Matt, maybe you want to get in touch with BradleyK and see if you can carpool down with him? That might shave a little more time off the trip down and back, since the two of you could use the carpool lane from Everett south to the Kent-Des Moines exit (#149)...

    Scored a few items...

    1) 50/1.4 Nikkor-SC from Mike Langely
    2) black Nikkormat FT2 and 180/2.8 ED AIS from Jared Williams (son of the late Brian William, also known as microbee on eBay). Got the 180 for $100.

    I *may* also be reacquiring the Nikkormat FT3 that's depicted below. Saw it at the swap meet.

    I did sell a few things, so it all worked out.
