I have always had a great admiration for our collecting colleagues from the USA and the enthusiasm with which they approach the hobby.
The following links will take you to the latest threads concerning the Chattanooga National show which took place earlier this month.

Thanks for highlighting.

I had to miss this shindig as Best Man at a mates wedding………
Americas Ralph Finch (small guy with pony tale) who has supported so many major UK Fairs over the past few decades and written umpteen reports in BBR magazine (& is a truly major writer over in the States) was inducted into the Hal of Fame.

A MASSIVE congratulations to Ralph - well deserved, moreso during his illness problems over the last 12 months. Just so very very sad to miss the presentation…… some wondrous bottles by all accounts….

More links to threads relating to this years FOHBC National Show at Chattanooga.
Although it is included in the Virtual Museum link I have also put on separately the youtube link to the promotional video for the Virtual Bottle Museum.
Possibly not everybody’s cup of tea but I think it is a brilliant concept and use of technology which I hope comes to fruition.
An innovative way to enhance the enjoyment of the hobby and if you haven’t seen it well worth a look. All we need now is some virtual digging!!!

Thanks for posting that.

Have browsed the competition and the displays, some mind blowing items, especially the blue flat sided skittle and the blue bitters bottle.

Shall indulge more when I get half an hour.

Always humbled by FOHBC events, especially now spearheaded by the magnificent Ferdiand Meyer.

Sadly, UK collectors don't give this kind of support to the likes of our showpiece SummerNational. Iif it were to equal such our hobby would, like in the States, be witnessing growth.

I could digress further but may offend some folks…. suffice to say, again, majorly impressed by the ongoing growth of membership to the FOHBC…. it's like a snowball rolling down the hill.

At least we've got a potentially assured 5 more UK Nationals - maybe this post will install some impetus to join in the displays/ competitions/ support?
