Yes, front row for Suzy Bogguss-excellent performance.

I'll try to get some photos up tomorrow. In the meantime, here's a link (with his permission) to about 300 pictures that Big Al took.

Thanks for the compliments guys. I appreciate all the oldgassers that came to vend or shop. Especially the outdoor guys that tolerated the chilly weather.

I think the new venue worked out well, and we will likely return there in 2016 with a few improvements.

We had folks from upstate NY, Long Island, Staten Island , south Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont. Here are some comments we received on the door prize entries:
"great show, can't wait for next year"
"Fun !!"
"Really well done"
"Nice show"
"great time"
"great show Ed, loved it"
"very good job"
"GREAT SHOW ! Please send table info for next one"
"awesome show"
"Very organized and enjoyable. Friendly vendors with lots to look at"
"glad I checked it out- will def return"
"nice job with show"
"Nice cross section of items, picked up some great plates at reasonable prices"
" nice show we will come again"
"good show good stuff"

and this email received today-"I wanted to email you to say my wife and I had a real nice time at your show Sunday. I liked the setting in the new hall. Lots of friendly people. The items I bought will be good additions to my collection. Again...great show Sunday."

A photograph of a buyer checking out signs made the county newspaper here today.

This year was easily the best Metro Petro yet! The setting was very scenic, with the riverfront view, was easy to find off the interstate, had a full service kitchen and bar open during event hours, was just truly a great set up! I sold more there than I have at a gas bash in a long time!! Add in quality vendors, and ample parking, and you have a show that could teach some other meets a thing or two..
GREAT EVENT ED!!!
