    I'll be there. Thought about doing a table as I have quite the collection of this and that, cables, connectors, accessories, unopened XRCD's, etc. But, I think I'll just observe this year as it will be my first visit to Vintage Voltage.

    I vote 7:00. We would finish up by about 8:00, an tehn we could head over to help other set up. The show allows early birds to enter at 10:00, so if you can't get in to sell, you would have at least a two hour wait.

    Anyone else care to cast a vote?
    Maybe 8:00? Then we would be at most an hour early.

    thoughts.......

    But wait, there's more!

    I got an email from Dana this morning. Vintage Voltage will now be in the fall as well as Spring. The fall show will be in September at the National Western Complex. Not quite sure how I feel about this yet. Wasn't real happy with the last show (from a seller's perspective). Thoughts?

    Happy trails,

    Hey Larry,
    She tried to do a second VV expo a second time in a year. This was a few years back. I felt it flopped kind of bad. I went as a seller and did very well, but that is because I was practically giving away my stuff. The other folks I went with did very poorly. As a buyer, the selections was very limited as compared to the spring show. If you go, go as a buyer and have fun. My $0.02 worth

    I just noticed a email this weekend about her show. Kinda on the fence if its worth it to bring some things down there or not. Is it setup under a covered area, like where the cows are at durring the Livestock show? 8 hours does seem kind of long to sit around, but may have beer booths close by make it more doable.

    I went to the fall show a few years ago. It was pretty lame. Granted, the economy was in the dumps, but most of the attendees were there for the modernism show. It is nothing like the spring expo. I certainly wouldn't spend the money for a table a a seller.

    Just my $0.02 worth

    I was also curious about it, the shows seem to really be a buyers market. Can't get much in the way of a deal if your a seller, buyers are just better off in the local market. Last time I was at the show selling, it was easier to sell base models offby the dozen then a nice piece. The local market just seems to be to thin and especially when most can or will use ebay or other services that allow a return option.

    If you go Mark it would be great to see you again!
