July 30, 6pm -12am
had a great time at the 8th annual net54baseball.com National
dinner. Free food, free drinks, good camaraderie...what's not to
like? I ran out of space on my camera's memory card just as the
speakers started...so there went a half hour straightening that
out. By the time I got back to my seat all ears were glued
listening to one of the speakers Josh Evans of Leland's. It was a
mighty speech...Josh said a lot...forgoing the controversial, Josh
defended his selling of Roberto Clemente plane crash parts.
Someone asked him a practical question, what fleas he
shops...Someplace called Germantown he said. In another part of
his speech he talked about the time he lost a lot of money in an
airport and got it back. And then it was off to the free buffet
and drinks. Net56Baseball.com's owner Leon Luckey is a great host
to provide all that. He's certainly an asset to the hobby. Below
are shots of the evening.
