Yes, both days. Not worth traveling that far, setting up and tearing down, for just one day. Also, exhibitors who bug out after one day won't get invited back.

We are staying in Loveland for the weekend. We have a horse/house-sitter taking care of the ranch.This gives us a chance to try some new micro-breweries.
Cheers!

That is a great story. Trains/train layouts and kids are just something special. As I've been working in my garage this past summer/fall on my layout I've had quite a gaggle of young on-lookers from the neighborhood. I can predict which ones are our future engineers, and which are not, just by the questions they ask.

It would have been amusing had the young man pointed to the Warsteiner semi and said, "Beer!"
Cheers!
