2001 AAGSSCS Convention - Denver, Colorado
Typical with AAGSSCS Conventions, the "action" begins with "Room Hopping" - buying and selling shakers between members - From early birds to any free time during the Convention. (If you have never attended a convention, be prepared to see more shakers for sale than you have ever seen in one place!)
