I will be attending, but unfortunately will not have any vendor tables because my "buddy" screwed up and didn't reserve any for me, despite my specific request.  (This is the last time I let him be in charge of anything.)

 

I will probably be there Saturday only.

 

Traditionally, there is all kinds of good stuff - heavy on vehicle items, and most of the big-name vendors are there.  Plenty of local and national militaria vendors, reenactors, and display only stuff plus it is being held in conjunction with the regular gun show, so there should be something for everyone.

For those who are coming and haven't heard already, I'm going to put on a large WW2 War Correspondent/Photographer display with a pal of mine who's also a member (we're leaving the Jeeps at home, though), already signed up for the display spot (V11 on the map, about halfway down the left wall as you walk in, any forum members say howdy if you're there!)

I'm spending the next couple of days getting everything together to take to Portland...

I'll be there! I've got a sale table booked and I'll be bringing an assortment of helmets, field gear and some uniform bits and pieces to sell.

Looking forward to it! See you guys there!

Rick

Portland was a blast. The Corresondent display wasn't quite what I'd had in mind, both myself and Bryan overestimated the size of the display area, even after it'd been expanded. A lot of my war correspondent stuff never got out of the container, but for what I had, I was pleased with how it turned out, and was certainly pleased with our joint display overall. We seem to have gotten a very favorable reaction from those who got to see it. We didn't win any awards, though, but that wasn't why we set it up, anyway.

And here are some shots from some of the more interesting stuff I saw:

I know I'm whining here, but I was very disappointed to get the current Army Motors issue yesterday with coverage of the convention and found that ours was the only display that was never mentioned or had photos shown. Many much smaller displays all got mentioned.

I'm not sure why we were singled out to be specifically excluded from any mention.

We've both decided we're never going to waste our time with an MVPA event ever again.

lee, i can certainly understand your disappointment. i think you had a very nice and complete set up, and am surprised to learn it was ignored.
