joestreet Posted January 11, 2010 Report Share Posted January 11, 2010 Hello everyone, here is a report on the Indy show. I’ve posted it on all of the forums, if you get tired of seeing it I apologize. January 9th 2010 Indianapolis Show 1. The day of the Indy show had arrived and I looked outside to a bunch of snow… So I did what any good father would do and handed his daughter a snow shovel. My son tried to take my position as an observer but as you can see in the next picture my daughter got him lined out. 2. Kids sure are handy 3. We got to the show and checked out who all was there. 4. Notice that Griff and Bill O. are listed twice? I was relieved to learn that it was mistake; there was only one of each at the show. Bill O. is a nice enough fellow but I don’t think the world is ready for two Griffs. 5. A lot of people braved the bad weather to make it to the show, Rick and his son Jake (not pictured) made it. 6. The Splattman! Rhonda must have called and reminded him. 7. It was a pleasure to meet Kevin and his daughter Kenzie. 8. Chris J. A great guy who has the best hand made collection I’ve ever seen. 9. Diane B. gave my kids a couple of animatronic puppies, you push a button and they roll around and play Christmas tunes. I asked our Pomeranian why he couldn’t do that, he just looked at me like I was stupid (so did my wife). 10. Diane entertaining kids, when we go to a show my kids always ask if Diane is going to be there. A wonderful person, thanks Diane. PS, Diane after the kids went to bed me and Karen played with the puppies 11. Mike A. manning the Id/Appraisal table. 12. Kim W. keeping an eye on things while Mike is out wondering around. I wasn’t able to get a picture of Beth the club President, she unfortunately wasn’t able to be at the show but she left it in very capable hands with Mike and Kim. 13. Griff, me and Ron Shepard. I’m smiling because I’m at the marble show, Ron’s smiling because he’s a happy guy and Griff is smiling because he just lifted my wallet. 14. Griff counting my loot. 15. Ron, Kokoken and Steve S. 16. The light outside of my favorite marble room. 17. Chuck B. answering questions for a collector. Chuck has the most spectacular Vitros that you will see at a show. 18. Some of Chucks marbles. 19. The marble that I circled was a killer parrot, I should have taken more pictures of it. 20. Some more nice Vitro’s. 21. George S. a really nice marble man. 22. Some really cool Vacor’s, Michelangelo’s. Vacor does make some pretty marbles. 23. Some more of George’s marbles. 24. And some more. 25. Elizabeth and Steve, Steve loaned me several really cool marbles to take pictures of for my site. Included were some 1991 Jabo’s , these were some of the very first classics made. Thanks Steve. 26. Some other interesting things that Steve brought to the show, here is the shear from a 1932 Vitro machine. 27. Here is a cup and shear from a modern Jabo machine. 28. The cup is stationary on the marble machine and the shear sits in a water cooled platform that moves back and forth and cuts off chunks of glass as it flows into the cup. Very neat stuff. 29. Ron Yutzy… 30. And some of his collection, I thought the remelts were interesting. 31. I really like clambroths. 32. Some John Hamon Miller contemporaries. 33. Lonnie Conyers, he usually hangs out with this guy Bud (whom I failed to get a picture of), a couple of real marble nuts. I had talked to Bud he told me that it had really been a great show for him and that he wished it would last a couple more days. 34. Some of Bud’s marbles (I think). 35. Some of Lonnie’s marbles, the Vitro, 3rd row down, 3rd from the left is a really neat marble. If I hadn’t been robbed by an unnamed party earlier it would be in my collection. 36. Some nice Popeyes. 37. Jim Gaudin. Nice meeting you Jim, look forward to seeing you at future shows. 38. Jim had some nice marbles as well as this killer paperweight that he brought to the show. 39. Some of Jims Mibs. 40. And here is a few more. 41. Bill Bass, Bill always brings some killers to the shows. 42. Here are a few of Bills marbles. 43. And here are a few more. 44. I usually take more pictures of Bill’s marbles but for some reason this time I didn’t. So to fill out this group I’ve inserted a picture of a bald guy with some Christmas puppies per my son’s request. If you made it to the end thank you for checking it out.
