    Yay!

    I'm looking forward to this and I'm figuring it can't be any colder than it was in Indy, so I should be okay. ;)

    The Village Gate Toy Show is pretty low tech... They don't have a website (although that's a thought for the March show [face_thinking]). What information are you looking for? I think most of the basics should be covered in this thread.

    the show runs from 10 to 4 although some will be there by 9 for set up

    There's been talk about doing dinner afterwards & then some of us have bowling that night that will end up getting pushed back by dinner, so feel free to join us for all 3 if you'd like :)

    Chewbacca would be fine as I'm not sure how much KnightShade will be in costume if he's going to be helping me sell, watch the club tables and take pictures.

    Yeah...I was thinking the same thing. Then we'd be leaving later in the day so the roads (in theory) should be clearer.

    Gotta touch base with Lyn tonight, we'll probably play it by ear in the morning.

    Some of us are meeting at 8:15 at the Pembroke rest stop. We should be there around 9.

    I'll bring my radio and chime in when we arrive. I'll use the same channel as the BPO event. If it changes, can someone PM me?

    Mindy won't be appearing in costume. She's dropping me off and visiting with her friend. I'm sure she'll swing by the show for a bit with mini me!

    Weather isn't bad here *knock on wood* so Lyn and I are heading out shortly.

    So as long as we get to Wingnut's okay, we'll see everybody on Sunday morning!

    I didn't get a chance to get anything ready to display on a laptop unless I can find the fan film disc we made up for the last toy show. So, I'm not sure what we'd use your laptop for exactly or where we'd put it, but I suppose you can bring it if you'd like.

    The thing I do need is a boombox with a CD player so that we can have some background SW music playing. If anyone has one of those (or if I remember to call MadKid and ask him) please bring that. I have all the CDs, just no way to play them away from home.

    EDIT: FYI - for those at the sales table, Diane will be bringing a cash box and the Tranquility will be providing seed money for it. For the raffle(s) going on they can make change out of that.

    If anyone has some Star Wars CD's - bring them for music.

    We put ours in a safe place, and they aren't surfacing at the moment.
