President, Dave Mackay, accepting model kits developed by Manuel Duran-Duran. They are in the Collinwood Shop set up in the hotel coat closet during the first two days at the convention. The coat closet was a tight fit for us, but we sold a huge amount of NYCS offerings from that tiny closet.  During the convention, Mike and Karen Vescelus, Noel and Ann Widdifield, Dave and Annette, and Ralph Schiring staffed the Shop. (All of them are full NYCSHS members.)

The convention was a huge success with just over 125 members attending.  Joe Burgess and his team are congratulated for a wonderful convention.
