Post Windy City Report

Convention came and went in a flash.  A handful of movies in the film festival. We had two auctions. One packed Con Suite, and hundreds of customers roaming about the dealer room.

Hopefully we will be able to post more information later…once we have the time.  Also there a couple of themes kicking around in Doug and John’s head for next year’s convention.  Keep an eye on the website for more information.

Windy City Is This Weekend!

WIndy City is almost upon us.  As we work in getting the convention ready to open on Friday, we’d like to remind everyone that we will have the Con Suite open on Thursday evening, with Pre-Registration attendees able to pick up their packages.  We cannot take advance registration at that time though.

Dealers may unload and setup only on Friday morning.  Dealer setup time starts at 8:30 am.  For those who took advantage of Early Bird admission, you may enter starting an hour later at 9:30 am.   Otherwise the dealer room opens at 11:00 am, the Art Show opens at 2:00 pm and the preview of the Friday Night auction will take place as soon as we can get it set out for viewing.

See you all at the show.
