Ready . . . not quite.

Room is booked and Cydonia has bought his airline ticket from Louisiana to Michigan.

Now I just need to get my butt in gear and get my entries done! :oops:

I am...cautiously optimistic. I only went once (the year when the guests were Gary Lockwood, Kier Dullea, Dirk Benedict, Bernie Wrightson), and had a great time. Ever since, the guest lists have not really interested me. Who knows who will attend this year? If they could get Martin Bower and/or Bill Pearson, I would book a trip in a heartbeat.

For me (and many others) it's really just about seeing all of my modeling friends from around the world. It's just a party really and there happens to be tones of cool model stuff there and neat guests.

Room is set. Demo is planned (with new content to figure out). Drive is set up. Bourbon trail with my wife is set for a couple of days after the show.

So say we all! Some years, as much as I want to make it to some of the workshops, hanging out with friends comes first. How-to's are great, but it's even better to get to be with folks you only see once a year, if you get to go to WF.

Got the room booked, but not setting up a table. Last year was fun without a table and I provided Starship Modeler and Federation Models with kits since they had tables anyway.

Amen, brother Blap.
Just noticed it's only 101 days until I hop on that plane to the States again...
Looking forward to seeing you all at The Suite.

Depends on how much are you planning to charge for signed photograph?
