I agree the photo would be a good idea. We could get all of the forum attendees in forum shirts either at the pork booth, Cracker Barrel, or The Cardinal. That should catch pretty much all of the forum members and SoS attendees. Then again, trying to pick only one location could start another civil war...

I think the best bet for a group photo is to set a time and place on Saturday and whoever is there can jump in.

 

Like 1PM Saturday at someone's booth, or right outside the show.

I'll be there in my usual spot against the wall southeast corner of the hall.

The three best things in life are a good landing, a good orgasm, and a good bowel movement.

A night carrier landing is one of the few opportunities to experience all three at the same time.

 

You can not pronounce as knowledge anything you can not demonstrate.

After missing last year, I'm planning on making the Friday force-march round trip again this show. Will be there when the doors open and be there until the day is done. I will be bringing 2 or 3 first time SOSers with me. Should be fun. Really looking forward to seeing old friends and hopefully being able to meet more USMF members this year! Got a four wheel drive vehicle to travel in this year, so the weather will be a little less of a consideration.

 

Really looking forward to meeting the veteran guests, as always. That's the highlight of the show for me...

Have you ever noticed that people who are brutally honest seem to take more pleasure from the brutality than from the honesty?

Every other show i have been to this year has just not lived up to the SOS.

So its final. Im coming!! My parents gave me the trip and hotel for x-mas present. Me and my dad will be there, hes not really a collector but has interest in militaria and coming along for the ride.

 

First time I will be at SOS so im so excited. Spent a lot of time figuring out how I was going to get there so now ill have extra $$$ for buying. :)

 

Does any of the members meet up at all? Im sure ill find out much more when it gets closer.

 

My uncle whom many of you know was a KIA/MIA in WWII. He is buried not far outside of Louisville so Ill be visiting his grave site while were there too! That is something that is on my bucket list.

Hoping to make it again this year, not sure so far, but will move heaven and earth to try and get there. Have a trip to France and Belgium for battlefield and museum visits planned for May so it's just a money and priority issue.

If Dave is going, I guess I will stay home......

I'll just have Dave stop by the black cloud and have him introduce himself. We probably won't see him for the rest of the show. :)

Good point Scott.

Okay, I am back on and will be going to watch Dave deal with that.

 

Sorry I missed the posts! LOL

 

Are you guys inferring I'm anti-social? :D :D

 

Just because I disappear at shows and don't talk to people doesn't mean I'm not there. Well, not always at least. LOL ;)

Not at all Dave, the black cloud just has to be experienced, it can't be adequately expressed on a message board. :P

I just found out that I will have two aisle tables there, first time setting up. What time do dealers have to be there on Wednesday for check-in and setup? Do your table helpers have to be present on Wednesday or can they arrive on Thursday?
