I'll be there...as a vendor. Probably won't have much large scale stuff, tho....beyond a few static pieces suitable for scenery or flat car loads. Mostly bringing stationary engine kits, putt putt boats and other live steam toys this time. Please stop by and say "hi!" anyway, tho ;)

Anybody else staying at the Holiday Inn on Arsenal Rd?

. ...Could one of you guys attending please ask the show promoters if they plan on having any more of the Men, Metal & Machines shows out here in California? ...

If I remember rightly from  the vendor meeting last year, they really loved doing the show, even though it was a haul for them....but the problem was not enough vendors and spectators for them to break even considering the rents and stuff out there.

Well the stuff I have here is packed....still waiting on 2 boxes full of stuff. (Only about $600 worth). UPS says since I work out of the house I'm not a "real" business, so they will be delivered at THEIR convenience. I have stuff I really need to do today, but I'll be stuck waiting (im)patiently until the dude in brown decides to show up.

My luck they will come tomorrow AFTER I'm gone.

STILL heard nothing...except that there wasn't going to be the usual vendor's meeting. Guess they quit asking once they had enough people say that they'd go. Nobody mentioned anything about any kind of reception on my side of the hall. Too bad. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/sad.gif  It's ok, I was dog tired both nights anyway.  

OTOH I DID hear a LOT about sales being WAY off from previous years. I think I did about 1/2 of normal, and even PM Research said theirs were down significantly.
