In my opinion, this was the worst deer expo yet.  first off, i had to stand outside in line in the cold for 45 minutes before i was even in the building.  i never had to stand in line outside before in bloomington or peoria, therefore, didnt bring a coat to lug around inside all day.  once i got in, it was too crowded, vendors and people.  also, there were not nearly the number of vendors there as in past years.  i dont know if this was because of a smaller venue or the change of date.  some of my favorite booths werent even there this year.  Very dissapointing.  Also, you had to go downstairs to see the mounts and the remainder of the vendors.  Very crappy set-up.  i wont be going back to the classic as long as it is in springfield.  Bloomington was the best, but i knoe they cant have it there anymore.  peoria was still far superior to this.
