I'll have a few choice items for display and sale at the show. Feel free to call or email me with any wants and I'll bring related items to the show for those who can't make it to my store. See you there. Ed

I'll be there at my usual location along the back wall with three tables of orders, decorations and medals of the world.  Maybe some goodies will escape the gravity of Planet Robert and make it all the way to the back of the room.

I'll probably go on Sunday, and hopefully finally meet some forum members.

Do people still dress in period uniforms when attending, or is that considered dorky?

Hello, I've been hoping to go and set up. When are you dealer-types planning to get there? Noon on Jan 1? My boss (the Mrs.) wants to celebrate New Years Eve and she is not keen on doing that at some hotel in Raleigh.

Anyways, does anybody have recommendations for decent hotels near the fairgrounds?

And, does that show building have free wi-fi?

Thanks, JimB

I'm coming! I'll be the overweight, middle-aged guy, so keep an eye out for me.

 

Ed Hicks, please bring more US helmets if you can find room.

Good God! Could you make it easier for me to spot you? You just described all but one person at the show. Ed  :lol:
