It was fun, but I was disappointed in the quality of the video equipment. Nothing was really clear, sparkly and like it has been in the past. I was not the only one to notice ..... Since even the captions and credits for the different reels were fuzzy, I am blaming it on the theatre, because I sure hope it isn't like that everywhere. Other than that, out of the nine reels I really enjoyed 4, two were pretty good, two were ok and one I saw little value in. Each city gets a different selection, although some of the bigger award winners seem to make it into every show.
All and all what we saw was not as good as the previous two years, but those had set the bar pretty high for me.
The show sold out and the crowed cheered on and on and I still recommend it.
Oh, I almost forgot. 1200 people, almost all entered the free raffle and Libby won the 1st prize, a Thermarest 40th anniversary edition. Winners were asked to get up and yell out loud and she almost froze when she heard her name called.
