I am planning on attending. Don't know about Friday as I hope to be in a new job by then and won't know if I can get out of work early.

If that's the reason, I'll accept it. New Job=Good Thing.

Of course, you could always swing by for dinner. I'm sure we'll do something on Friday. I have to eat somewhere, why not with friends?

It is with deep regret that I have to announce that one of our core vendors, Bill "Lookey Here" will not be able to set up at the show due to timing with a needed procedure. We wish Bill Godspeed, and hope that he is well enough to at least stop by and say Hi. Wave

We will be doing a Special Metal Card to support Bill and his family during this difficult time when he has been off work. More details when I have them.

Too bad Bill can't set up, hope he can stop by. He is definitely one of the nicest people there, and always has good deals on his table.

Glad you are supporting Bill with the metal card, I'll be sure to pick one up.

Sorry to hear that Bill can't set up. I can work the door on Saturday. Hoping Barb will be there as well. I may be able to come Friday after work if I am needed. Just let me know. See you all there....

We have several dealers that are new or have not been to the show in some time. Showcase on one of the new guys:

quote:
The "Rockstone Rick" Collection
Alex and Ricardo bring a new collection to the show for the first time. Come early to be one of the first to see what they are going to have.


Get those want lists ready, and maybe take off early on Friday. Metal

Sorry to hear about Bill not being able to set up. I always enjoy stopping by his table to chat and always find a good deal.

Thanks for giving us a chance to support Bill with the metal card, I will be purchasing one.

Another new dealer profile!

quote:
Scott Castleman
Original star wars cards in very nice condition. Original star wars figurines, some sets and singles from the 70's and 80's, extensive collection of famous monster magazines, monster initials, considerable original wacky pack cards, some graded non sports, monster flip books, and much much more.


Another reason to be one of the first in on Friday. Sounds like an interesting table! Metal

First Door Prizes Announcement

Like always, we will have door prize drawings at 6:30 PM Friday and 2:30 PM on Saturday.

First Items to announce are creepy, but many also consider them cool

Friday we will have a set of Serial Killers Series 1 Cards. These reprint the original 75 card set.


Saturday we will have a 90 Card Set of the All-New Series 2


These were donated by the fine folks at the SK Group, who are producing the cards.

More details on more door prizes coming soon...

Will be doing some decals again if anyone would like something special, let me know. I know Doctor Who was popular last time. Perhaps some Captain America......

I will be attending dinner as well. The kiddos will be tagging along as well. Unfortunately we will need to leave earlier than usual on Saturday so I can attend my Excel class from 1-5.

Can't wait to see everyone again!
