I had the same impression as Mike (hey we agreed for once :). Nothing you couldn't buy on the net someplace. I felt the same after Tucson 2008, although it is magnified in Denver because of the small size of the show.
Meteorites are much, much less plentiful than even two years ago. Specimens that seem expensive now, will look like bargains in 5 years.

Nonetheless, Denver is always a good place catch up with friends and I like the short duration.

Anne, there was nothing there that can not be found on Ebay every day. And Dima's LDG, I brought it to him from my garage, so yes, I was aware of it for the last 3 months.
Denver is nice, but if you wanted new meteorites, large pieces, good deals on anything other than micros, it was not there.
I spent more on hotels and food than meteorites, what does that say? I seriously doubt that I will attend the show next year.
