I was at the NRHS convention in Scranton PA and left my 1000 mile jacket at the
house because I knew it would be to darn hot. So you my have a point.

Could it be they just left their vests at home because they thought it
was too hot in Milwaukee?

Kind regards,

An amazing observation was made at the Milwaukee NMRA
convention last week. Only a single individual wearing the traditional
"vest" with a patch collection was spotted. Either the fun poked at
vesties has caused them to retire those garments, or maybe the older
crowd which favored them has passed on. But the days when masses of
NMRA members were synonymous with vest wearing appear to have passed.
