I knew I had a gig Saturday. I just found out my daughter has an NHS induction ceremony on Sunday. If I go to the show I'd be spending almost as much time driving as at the show, if I want to make the other stuff.

Getting ready to get ready. Oh, it's real easy to go to this show. Cancel the gig, say goodbye to the family, pat the dog on the head as you head out.

I can't make it this year, but if anyone from Michigan is going, I desperately need two 27 1/2" calf BD heads. We could exchange phone numbers, so I could see them, I'll help out w/some travel expense, etc.

Actually, now that I think about it, there might be a couple of buddies of mine from here (Detroit) going, so...anybody going to Chicago got some 27 1/2" calf heads?

I have always enjoyed the show, but the real catalyst for attending was to place a few kits in the consignment booth - helped to cover some expenses and freed up room to acquire some new stuff.

Does anyone know why they stopped with that booth? It always seemed busy and there were some excellent deals to be had.
I, too, would like to know this. Consignment booths at vintage drum shows were always tons 'o fun.

I believe the brothers that ran the consignment area grew tired of it. Drugan's is now running consignment from their booth.

?I was incorrect, there is no consignment this year.

If you are friends with someone who has a booth, you might be able to work out an arrangement to consign your things with them. Or you can post items for sale on the forum and arrange to deliver them while you are in Chicago.

Could the drum forum booth become a consignment, or just plain selling, booth?

Great to have some Vitamin Z back, Dave. Do you have your Sunday outfit picked out?

I guess that's all you need for first place our Central division though the Twins are hot on your trail at .460.

Did consignment end when they moved to Villa Park? It might be a location issue.

Could someone get me one of the new ludwig T-shirts? If they will ship from the show I can just talk to someone and do PayPal or just PayPal one of you to do it, thanks in advance!

Mike,
I will look for you in Nevin's booth. I am probably going to bring a bit of Galaxy Sparkle if I can fit it in the rental car for the trip.

Finally making my first show....which is sad since I'm local. I'll be there Sunday with my two guitar players in tow....or they'll be hiding at the Amigo Fest. LOL.
