We are writing a big article on the FOHBC Reno EXPO for Bottles and Extras which will be delivered to FOHBC members by 01 September 2012 and hopefully sooner. I know some of you have been asking for pictures and I wanted to take a look at some of the shots myself from our professional photographer, Scott Selenak.
The event was wildly successful with a large crowd, great food and of course great glass! Hopefully we can do this again.

We had fun! Let’s refine the “protocol” and do it again!
Yes, more of a Showdown or Beauty Pageant, but with larger than expected crowds, we had to streamline it and improvise. Very pleased. We learn from things. Already talking about doing it again. Thanks for helping out Jeff.
I was laying on the bed trying to recover from the long day when I talked to Louie and he reminded me about the shootout just winding up. Glad I made it down, but sad that the food was wiped out. Had a couple pops and enjoyed the bottles. Not really a “showdown” or “shootout” like we had in the “old days”, but a great opportunity to see some outstanding glass.
