    Hey Mark!

    This is an invitational but we are still trying to hammer out the details for vendors/suppliers.

    We will be in touch with you either way if you are interested in joining the show.

    Talked to Bruce Bump yesterday and he said he will be at the show.
    For those of you that don't know Bruce.....
    his butcher knives include a 40 caliber pistol so you can shoot and cut all with the same knife.

    I hope she doesn't wear the Wonder Woman outfit again.
    I kind of preferred the Venus on a half shell one myself.

    I've been looking for somewhere to go.
    Haven't been to that part of the country.
    Train, plane or auto? Hmmmm.

    This would be a great show to attend -- meeting all these great makers would be memorable. Checked flights for trying to do a one or 1-1/2 day trip and the fares are close to $600 :(

    Fly into ORD or MKE, we'll take a road trip. As long as you are OK with getting busted at any moment.

    I like to travel that way.

    I hope I'll be able to come up to the event. My wife will be way pregnant at the time so it depends on her. The Pre Funk at David's sounds like a blast too. 2 weeks after OKCA means I might have some more money to spend.
