As seen at the FDIC 2024

This from Larry Shapiro:

There was no apparatus on display this year from the northern Illinois area. The image shows the Lucas Oil Stadium exhibits. With Pierce finally moving their booth to the convention hall with all of the other apparatus, the stadium had a much different look and feel than it has since it opened in 2008.
