I'd like to thank everyone who came out to the Steadicam Guild's Stabilizer Gear Expo.
Attendees as well as Exhibitors!
It was so great to see old friends.
I hope everyone had a good time.
I need to give special thanks to some folks who helped make this event a success.
Marc Abernathy... THANK YOU so much for volunteering to help me set up the Steadicam Guild booth (and help run it) Marc showed up early, stayed the entire event AND he helped me tear down and pack EVERYTHING! Kurt Nolen did this last year but was unable to attend due to work. (Thank you Kurt for last years help!)
Charles Papert discovered Aliens Private Vasquez
dolls action figure with the Smart Gun complete with Steadicam arm and vest so of course we had to acquire those for the raffle. Thanks Charles!
Special thanks to Kurt Nolen for coming up with the idea, and asking Jenette Goldstein, the actress who played Private Vasquez, if she would like to come out and help raffle off her Smart Gun / Private Vasquez action figures. Kurt reached out to her through her Bra shop and to our surprise she answered! She apologized for not being able to attend but offered to sign the action figures for us!
Thank you Kurt and thank you Jenette! The signed action figures were a big hit!
Please visit Jenette's Bra shop for yourself (if you're a lady of course) or your significant other or heck, if you are a guy and wear bras... no judgement from me. LOL. :-) https://www.jenettebras.com/
I'd also like to give a big thanks to Steve, Andrew, Rey, Virginia, Ron and the rest of the folks there at Tiffen Steadicam for really going above and beyond this year with hosting our event!
Thanks to Will Demerit for making the suggestion that we have a tents tables and chairs for folks to sit down, eat and mingle! I think it made for a more comfortable venue for everyone this year and I think we'll have a large dining area with more tables and chairs for next year.
Thanks everyone! (I hope I didn't forget anyone!)
