Taking Shape at SHOT Show

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is spending the week forming new relationships and solidifying others, attending news conferences and conducting outreach with many friends and businesses  at the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show in Las Vegas. SHOT Show runs from January 20-23.

RMEF's home base is booth #1214 in the Sands Expo Center. Its transformation from the cement floors and pillars of a glorified "parking garage," for the lack of a better term, to a first-class showroom is rather remarkable. The three-man RMEF set-up crew is charged with assembling what old schoolers may refer to as a hybrid between a mutant Erector Set and Tinkertoys.

Pictures tell the rest of the story.

Like a giant jigsaw puzzle, the carpet is laid

Structure parts are sorted and laid out to simplify construction 
A change in elevation...
...stretches the structure skyward

"Nuts" and "bolts" are tightened with a "wrench"

RMEF meeting room walls start to go up

Audio-visual equipment is assembled...
...and banners are  hung

Let there be light
Things are starting to take shape

...and wrinkles are steamed out
Fabric walls are hung...

Mission accomplished...bring on SHOT Show
