Personally I look forward to attending the Tucson Show 'Every' year. It is
great to visit with old friends, meet new ones and buy some incredible
meteorites along the way from room to room. I also take this time of year to
go hunting in the surrounding areas of Arizona, Nevada and California... a
Whirlwind of FUN, FRIENDS, FAMILY & ADVENTURE...... My favorite show is
Ensisheim in June which is HUGE in that it is 'Meteorites Only' and we are
one happy family of like-minded people!! :)
See you in the desert southwest...

I was an exhibitor at all these shows in China. In Chenzhou last year the
government ordered all
Business to close down and all people had paid holidays and free admission
to the show. Attendance was mandatory. When the government in China orders
you to attend, you attend.
One out of every 10-15000 of those people may have bought something.
China shows have 1% the buyers Tucson has.
Nice try, but why people that don't even attend either show feel the need to
talk is beyond me.
