This is such a great show. Looking forward to it in Feb!

Just for everyone's information, I had a lot of success with Uber cabs last year. So, you don't have to rent a car...

Louisville, KY. If you ever get the chance to go, 101, I highly recommend it!!!

If that far ahead includes counting the days and scraping together some extra cash to spend, I'm right there with you, S!  :D I heard some rumblings from folks last year that the show was considering discontinuing having the veteran guests. Has anyone heard anything in that regard? I hope that's not the case but understand if it is.

Flights confirmed. Hotel booked. First year I be staying at the crown plaza. Hopefully we get an invite to some behind the scene dealer trading or show in tell at the hotel. This we be my fifth year in a row going and wouldn't miss it. Definitely the highlight of my year and am lucky to be able to go so many times being in the navy on active duty. Look forward to seeing everyone out there.

All ahead full!

I spent last Sunday pricing some new goodies and stashing them away for the show.

Can't wait!

Yup, I'm ready to make the pilgrimage again, all the way from the west coast of Canada :) Flights are booked and I'll be at the Crowne Plaza for the first time with Mike (sgtdorango)
Can't wait to see everyone and find more treasures for the war room!

Flights and room are booked. First year I was able to get a room at the Crowne Plaza (and for the show rate). Waiting to see if I was successful in getting tables away from the freezer hole this year. Almost blew away on setup day for the last 2 years.

 

Can't wait for this show and my annual pork sandwich feast. It is my "can't miss unless I am dead" event of the year. It is always nice to reunite with the same group of collectors and dealers that have become part of the "family"!

Hi

I have watching the flights since I got back from this years show...

The exchange rate really isn't helping with the price of flights or Militaria... But it is the SOS and there is not another show like it so I am sure I will be over again.

Regards

Tom

You can make up the cost with a stronger pound! Our prices are like 20% cheaper for you.

Hi

The U.S. Is not as good value as it used to be, but I travel for the quality of the items that are available.

Plus it is always a blast to meet up with friends from the U.S.
