Re: Question about power...

I've always used batteries but I do recall seeing power adapters. I am guessing they either had power in the floor they could uncover or I do recall having models against the wall tables so they could get power.

Knowing ahead of the show makes it easier to anticipate how much money you'll be spending. What Pat said.... Plus it also helps us know what to look for or go get right away.... especially if it's in limited quantities It may also help people decide if they want to splurge and get the early bird ad...

Some people use their phones or tablets for taking notes and pictures. People that are flying need to be aware of what they are packing and if they will be checking those bags or carrying them on. Best idea for tools is to put those in checked bags. TSA doesn't like to let hobby knives or blades in ...

Make-N-Take Volunteers

It's that time of year again. People are making plans to attend WonderFest and see friends, new products & learn things. One thing to consider is volunteering an hour of your time to help out with the Make-N-Take. Once again SSM has agreed to sponsor the Make-N-Take for WonderFest, but while we have...

Looking for Roommate(s)

I am hoping to attend WF again this year, and I think I have the transportation figured out but I really need to share the room to control costs. I have booked a room so I have one but I'm looking for someone to share with and I am open to more than one if the circumstances are correct. Please conta...

Question for the 1999 experts: what is the Hawk interceptor/fighter? I know nothing about it or the series but it looks so cool - almost like an early B5 craft. Kenny The Hawk is an earth space fighter. In a season 1 episode, Wargames, an attack on Moonbase Alpha by Hawks was an illusion placed in ...

I thought they normally announced those numbers at the beginning of the awards ceremony along with the number of entries. With it being a 2 day event, I was thinking the number was 500-750, with a lot of single day attendee's... Then their are the people that will share badges....

Let's keep in mind that packing everything up and hauling it to WF is a big expensive under taking. In talking with a few of the owners, sometimes the sales the make at WF are the same or not much more than if they'd just stayed home. So coming to WF can sometimes be more PR than business.
