Chicago Fall Show October 12th and 13th
Hey Everyone,

Looking forward to seeing everyone....

Just letting everyone know that the restaurant in the hotel is no longer Alberto's. It's a burger place now.

Do we have a volunteer photo-taker for the show?
Someone willing to take and post photos here on Cardtalk and the blog.
There used to be several pics posted along with show reports.
Seems the last few years we have been lacking in that area.
Perhaps there is a volunteer willing to do a video and post it on Youtube?
A good way to promote Chicago and Philly. Thumb Up

Still waiting to hear what K and J is donating for Friday's door prize drawing...

But I can say Scifi Cards is donating 2 inner boxes from Star Wars 2018 Masterwork for the Saturday Door Prize Drawing. Drawing will take place about 2:30, must be present to win.

Good question...

I don't know how much space the new restaurant has, but it can't be less than what we dealt with last show while they were remodeling.

I've got to each somewhere, and I hate to get out between show days, so I'm going to say anyone is welcome to join me at Burger Theory for dinner.

Nothing fancy, just good company and hopefully a good burger. I've heard no reviews on the new offering.

Ed
