Will do, Tobi. Almost 3 acres of tables, 14,520 sq. ft., I'm sure there will be something interesting. Hope I can live up to the high standards of other show reports (Gail S.).

What's a girl like you...doing in a place like this....?
Wait, I don't think I will go there. Just know that Peter Megaw and Gail Spann are huge Frank Zappa nuts.

Gail,
very nice to have photographed the exhibits in your Gail Spann's 2012 East Coast Gem and Mineral Show report. Always cool to see the original specimen beside the painting.

Question for you, on photo DSC_0354.JPG, the one of Dianna Weinrich in front of her booth with the 50% signs, at the back of the pictures, on the column, there is a sign with "No Photo Allowed"......was that for the show or a specific dealer or a joke or...what is the fine print below.

Cheers
Jean

I asked Marty Zinn, the show promoter, if I could take photos. He heartily agreed. I also didn't take any mineral specimens photos without permission from the dealers. People photos, well...that's a different story, but I always said what I was doing with them and everyone thought it fun to be in the report. I knew about the "no photo allowed" so was very aware of that policy. I should imagine that people's photos might be used in a bad way such as shoplifting ( there were, sadly, a few cases we were told about. )

Thanks Gail,

Is this a new policy at Marty's shows? I do not ever recall seeing a sign like this at Tucson or Denver.

Jean, the rule I go by, related to specimen shots, is to ask the owner if I may take a photo, it's up to them. Being on staff of the East Coast Show, I'm quite sure there is no promoter driven policy against photo taking, again, it's up to the dealer. I know of teams of shop lifters who use digital camera photos to plan their moves, not wasting their time on baubles and going for the high end stuff. Having worked lots of shows, as staff, I've seen very sophisticated misdirections, simple palmings, and teams that work very efficiently to gain their loot. They are always a problem at shows, and hard to stop.
