Basically, it all started as a club show… an event in NY state for some locals who’d banded together to form Club H2O. The club fizzled as clubs do when priorities change, and the remnants were picked up by Jay Shoup. Shoup’s a local to Ocean City, Maryland so you can probably see where this is going.

Edition 38 is the type of show where trends are set. While there are larger shows in Europe and even the UK where Edition 38 calls home, you’d be hard pressed to show us an event that has more quality builds per capita than here.
