attending our 27th (or so) Tucson Show.
The last time we exhibited there was about 1990. We have typically been attending and walking
the floors to meet up with our friends/associates from other countries who fly

in price (and that is typcially all fine quality material regardless of
species!), etc. It would also be
slightly difficult to display there as many of our trade associates purchase
from us and sell to the trade at the Tucson Show.
