    Hey everyone I will have by this Sunday a list of the things I have for the table.

    Including the leftover posters from last year.

    Mike I can put 25 dollars towards the table fee to help also.

    I will be in touch soon.

    Okay, here's the deal. Next Saturday, Nov. 11 there will be a SMF planning meet at my place, say around 1:00. Anyone and everyone either planning on going to SMF or who wants to donate something is more than welcome to attend.

    I'll post this also over on the Foxboro and RI boards.

    PM me if you need directions. Hope to see a few of you folks there.

    I have the banner for SMF. It worked out pretty well and looks pretty good. It will be ready for delivery to ya Mike on Sat.

    Anyone else planning on meeting up on Sat or will it just be Mike and I? I know Chris is out for this Sat. Is there anything you want me to pick up Chris and bring to Mike's or are you going to give it to him later in the week?

    Well this Saturday wasn't so much of a meet as it was a chance for people who plan on either being at SMF or donating to the cause to get everything squared away. As it looks now, it seems like Jorge is the only one stopping by to dropoff his donations and the table banner he so graciously made up for the group.

    If you STILL want to donate and can't make it to the meet, PLEASE PM me! I'll gladly make the effort to meet you somewhere to pick up any donations.

    It looks like the folks over at SMF have added a couple of last-minute guests to the list. Wrestler Spike Dudley and Erin Moran (Joannie) from 'Happy Days' will now be there both days.

    More guest news coming out of SMF. With his increased role of late in the WWE, Rowdy Roddy Piper will NOT be appearing.

    For anyone wth travel problems, it appears that there will be a shuttle bus from the Framingham MBTA station to the Sheraton Saturday only. More info can be found at the SMF site or MBTA.com

    I wasn't sure if I would be able to make it to SMF, but now that Joannie from "Happy Days" is coming, I'll move Heaven and Earth to get there.

    Bad news...weather actually looks good for Saturday, but I looked at the train schedule and there's no train connection on the way back that would allow me to be back in Brockton before dark. Have fun for me. [face_plain]

    Glad to hear you'll be making the scene Moby. Look forward to seeing you.

    I met up with Jorge yesterday and in addition to the nice stash of SW swag he donated for the baskets, he dropped of the FANTASTIC banner he made for the table. Can't wait to unveil it on Saturday.

    I'm still trying to get ahold of our contact for SMF to nail down our table location and allotment of passes to the show. I called him a few times over the past 5 days and he's yet to return any of my messages. As soon as I have an update I'll let you all know.

    still no word. damn what a SOB. I don't get it. Maybe it is time to try the other guy.

    Glad you liked the banner. I hope it pleases the rest of the people on the boards when they see it. I may have a few more items to donate which I will try to bring to ya on Sat (that is if I can go. lol)

    Just called the other guy. He was on the other line but I left a message with the person answering the phones. He should be calling me back shortly. Stay tuned...

    There may be hope yet...someone I know has offered me use of her old pre-paid cellphone, so I'll be able to call a cab from the Brockton commuter rail station if I don't get back until after dark. I should know if I can take her up on it Wednesday. :D

    Keep us posted Richie.

    Just heard back from the other guy running SMF (John) and we're all set. The show 'officially' opens at 9:30 but we're allowed to start setting up any time after 6:00 am. While I won't be there that early, I plan on being there by 8:00 at the latest. If there's anyone else who wants to help, just drop me a PM between now and Friday and I'll meet you in the lobby.

    As usual we received a handful of passes that I'll be able to pick up at check in. Those of you who I already promised passes to (you know who you are) I will leave either leave them at the ticket desk or you can give my cell phone a call when you get to the show and I'll come out to the lobby and meet you. I'll PM you my cell number shortly.

    If there are any further updates of note between now and Saturday I'll post them. If not, I look forward to seeing you all at the show!

    As long as I'm not working on either one of these days I might take my son down to the show. My wife is going away for the weekend and other than yardwork I don't have anything else to do.

    I've got a favor to ask though. Since I've never been to a con before, and I'm to lazy to read through this thread and see if the answer already exists, I have a question. I know that the ticket to get in is $20, but what the average cost for an autograph? I understand that it probably depends on who you are asking but a ballpark would be appreciated.
