Would the EGA collectors like to organize a meeting/show?

Not in the realm of possibilities for me, as a I own service / retail biz and I'm into it literally 24/7... (another words, don't start a biz, if you want a life)

Interesting topic.... but your question is pretty broad...show or meeting? Two vastly different things. Think the collector realm for EGAs is too small for any show just for EGAs. A meeting maybe, but a meeting to do what exactly? You can all come to my house. I live in Afghanistan at the moment.

S/F,

Mike

The first annual meeting will go in NW Florida as soon as Mike and Brig get back. Lets say Pensacola Summer or Fall 2012.

 

I propose August since the weather is so pleasent here that time of year.

 

I will also get every one free passes to the museum of Naval Aviation. (Note it is always free anyway).

 

 

 

Ok, Al joking aside. If there is really enough of an interest in doing this, we could do an annual meeting and move it across the country to accomodate those that live around the states. Every three years swap it around: One east coast one west coast and one Central. This could be done around the same time (day prior) as some of the bigger shows.

 

The West coast has the show at the pamona fairgrounds twice a year, there is the SOS, and not sure what the east coast show would be, but I am sure someone will chime in with that possibility.

 

We could even come up with a novel name like the EGA Collectors club

 

Just some thoughts by someone who needs more sleep.

 

If any one was really interested I woud host one here in NW Florida, but you guys would really have to like the Red Neck riviera.

I'd be willing to honcho a west coast meeting before or during Pomona. I will be around SoCal for a couple more years, at least. Might be a way to match some of my few hundred single collar devices.

 

Another idea is a newsletter... monthly, quarterly, bi-annual, or annual...

All good ideas. I think there is enough interest from what I can see. Count me in as well. I can host a NorCal venue if ever desired. Some ideas are Marines Memorial club in San Fran, etc. We could make a weekend out of it, where along the lines of a Company of Military Historians meeting/convention, we could do a display/swap, lecture schedule of members speaking on a chosen topic, and seeing local military sites, forts, etc. I think you guys are on to something......count me in.

I don't really collect EGA's, but I have been in contact with a number of you for years that do, and would be happy to host an east coast gathering...which would have to include the Marine Corps Museum and then lunch or dinner at the Globe and Laurel (for those that know what that place is and its unique customer base).
