I plan on attending again. This time I'm sewing my pockets partially shut so that my money lasts longer.

That's no good. I've tried it; the stitches just burn through when the money in your pocket spontaneously combusts. ;)

I'll attend. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I'll have anything to enter.

I'm considering selling some books and models out of the trunk of my car. Is anyone interested?

I was considering making the trip down from Canada again to attend, and my wife was looking into coming to try out the many biking trails around Louisville. But we have seen lots of coverage over the last few months, and even heard from personal friends, about the hostile reception that even Canadians are receiving at the US border. I guess we will have to wait and see if the reception gets any warmer after 2020.

Looks like me and Mama Bear will be able to make it after all. Had given up an staying at the hotel, as I was told it was booked up last week. I checked back today, just for the hell of it, and a room had opened up for Saturday and Sunday! Hope to have at least one model ready to show.

You can pester all you want but you won't like the results. I won't know what
we have to sell until everything is on the tables and that's not until Friday
night before the show. :P :P :wink:

Wise advice.

Ill be there this year. My Wife wants me out of the house for the weekend so she can clean and do some "work" on the gaming/computer room. Joe Brown also makes me go as I am used as a balancing ballast for bringing models up to the show.

And I pay for half the room and gas.

Not entering this year. I am still having minor eyesight issues and since I do most of my work at Joes house, its hard to start a project. My autistic Son morgan Love to steal parts from my games and models. Its cool, I usually find them ,but its hard to finish a model when I have to steal it back.

I am bringing another ugly shirt even worse than the dice shirt. My daughter Lexi, made it for me......

After missing out for over a decade (despite living only a couple of hours away), I finally have time to go again! HoJo booked, schedule cleared, yay!

Looking forward to seeing the SSM gang in person again. It's been a REALLY long time.

I'll probably enter some stuff, but it's pretty crappy stuff.

Well, I won't be attending this year ( though next year is possible ) but if I can ask a favor - when you're sitting down to dinner after you get there, raise a glass for Entil' Zog, Ramjet, Bluesman, and all our absent friends. Good luck and have fun, colleagues.
