    If you want to make an impact. Setup a cannon in an enclosed display where the kids can shoot at targets. On the targets, have a place where you can write the kids name and include a club link. We did this on a larger scale in the tank club using an artillery piece and targets out in a field. The kids and parents loved it.

    It was a great turn out, we had a lot of interested people talk to us and ask questions. We handed out lots of 3D printed life boats to the kids and flyers to the parents. The club member support was outstanding with some 20 ships on display in various conditions and stages of construction. The fair host was great, they gave us a 10x30 space with 6 tables and chairs. A special thanks to IC3D who gave out rolls of filament to exhibitors that showcased 3d printing.

    The group put on a fantastic display at the event this past weekend. It was a great time.
    Well done to everyone.
    It looks like we are planning to attend another of these in Cincinnati the first weekend in October.
