I wish! :P Pick me up something good hey :D

Perhaps next year, in all seriousness i would really like to get myself to one, but living in Australia, it's a long trip, best of luck to all forum buddies going out for a hunt!

If you can read this, thank a teacher, and, since it's in English, thank a soldier.

I'm still hoping to go but my ride bailed on me so now I'm trying to see who in the area is going and when.

Looking for for 37th Division

VietNam and earlier Special Forces &

USS Hemminger DE 746 items

I will be there Tables Q38 - 40.

 

This is a show I would have to be DEAD to miss. I have been attending since 2001 and setting up since 2005. It gets better every year no matter how bad the weather gets. The 2008 Ice storm kept some people away, but all of the "usual suspects" and diehards made it.

 

If you have never been to this show, you are definitely missing out. If you only make it to one US east coast show a year, this is the one to attend.

 

I will be driving in from Massachusetts...

I would LOVE to be there. But sadly, it's a long trip from the UK. However, it's my dad's 65th birthday this year and I'm thinking of booking plane tickets for the 2 of us for next year, as his present.

 

Does it always fall on the same date guys?

I will be there also. This will be my third show. I saw collectors at the SOS that I had not seen for twenty five years. Got to meet new collectors. And it is just not people from the US, The whole world of militaria collecting comes. There are collectors there from Germany, Russia, England and Holland. The Show brochure is like a Who's Who of collecting.

Generally yes, with the odd exception.

The OVMS website carries all the infomation that you would require.

The 2008 ice storm was quite a thing to see.......

 

Thanks Patrick, that's a big help. Gosh, I wouldn't have expected that kind of weather there? We're snowed in over here, it's crazy!

KY is famed for its...'crisp' winter temperature. Last years show was quite mild for a change.

 

The international airport (SDF) is a good one and easy to navigate, flights to KY from the major US hubs are also easy to source. If you ever get stuck and need some further help, just PM me nearer the time.

I'll be there....set up selling assorted WW1 and WW2 items and groupings. I tried desperately to get a second table, but that's almost impossible to do. I could really use the space!

 

If you have not been to this show..........you really can't comprehend what you're missing. 1,600 tables of militaria is amazing. It's impossible to truly see every thing.

I will be there in my usual tables in the middle of the room behind the bookseller. I would not miss it and have driven through snow and ice to be there.

I'll be there for sure. I've been going to the Show of Shows since 1993 and haven't missed one since. ;)

 

BTW, anybody have a show table for sale? I missed out on buying one and they sellout fast. :crying:

I hope to be there, depending on my job status. I have had a table at the show for many years, but had to give it up the last two shows due to my work schedule. Hopefully that won't be the case this year and I'll at least be able to attend. We'll see!

I'll be there. All I can say is that the winter in Kentucky this year has been bad. Temperatures have been below normal and we have had quite a bit of snow. Hope to see you all there!

I'd love to go, it's been a couple of years since the last time. Money is tight as usual. I could use the change in weather, it's unusually hot in Hawaii this "winter", It's been in the mid 80's with very little rain, very unusual. This may be the beginning of one of those years with the weather screwy all over the world. Can't beat the SOS even if it's a ways to go!
