  1. Hi Tori, thanks for your review of our Jet Center event 8/12. I have a couple of quick notes that I might add to your story: Our attendance has been caped at 2800 since the year 2001, so it was the same as your last visit. As for manufacturers, I actually cut them back this year, and had more privately owned cars than ever, airplanes too. Regarding the food, it was the same amount, distributed differently though, as we utilized tray passing in conjunction with stations due to prior years feedback. Thanks again, Gordon.

    • Thanks so much for reading my article! I really enjoyed the event. If there are any inaccuracies I need to change please let me know and I will. As for the food, manufacturer cars, and amount of people in attendance it was purely my perception compared to the last time I attended.
