    You mean the pen club. We will probably make it depending on how long Sweetnightingale's meeting lasts in Morton.
    We have met the enemy and he is us.

    Actually, the Pen Show. Sorry for the confusion, I know the recent posts are for the club meetings - I'm referring all the way back to the original post, and title of the thread, which is the Chicago Pen Show.

    Woot for Big Blue! Sharon Harter, then Hawkinson once Hawk and I tied the knot in 1993. I was a vocal music major. By chance, do you remember a black dog with white and gray markings named Charlie? If so, he was attached to me.

    Yes it is a large show, at one time the largest but, I'd say DC is the largest now. Someone just called for a table today - I've a few left but, expect to sell out. The crowd attending should be good too as I keep talking to people that plan to attend this as their first one and many people coming back that haven't been for a few years. I'm grateful that we've had such a positive response.

    Another newbie question: What is included in the $60 Full Weekend registration that isn't in the $50 3 Day Pass? Is it just one day less? Or is there more going on in the "includes all events"?

    Roger, am I safe being able to get in as a walk in on Saturday, or do I need to buy a pass prior to the event?

    Yes you can walk in on Saturday and pay the $5 at the door - doesn't go up, don't have to buy in advance. Also it is $5 instead of $6 because I don't want to have to bother with so much making change - I had to deal with so many singles last year.

    For the $60 you get the full four day immersion! Is that not enough? We never had a 3 day before so I thought I might be giving a break for those that can't make Thursday. So what do you get Thursday? Thursday is a lot of fun as it is fairly casual. We will have a section of the ballroom open for trading and they will be plenty of dealers selling. While the show has always had a pizza party we are upping our game this year to include true Chicago style pizza from Lou Malnati's. The extra $10 goes a bit into the costs of the pizza party and other show costs (I sincerely thank everyone for helping us make this work). A show is not a cheap proposition but, I've always loved the Chicago show and we're going to make it fantastic - something that you want to make all four days. Thanks,

    Roger W.

    I might make an effort to hit up Chicago this year. It's the closest show to me at about a 4.5hr drive. It may end up being my first show if I can't make it to Atlanta like I'm planning to.

    I'd love to make it for the whole weekend! It's not the cost, but the WAF (wife acceptance factor). I have two young kids with many activities. I won't stay married long if I vanish for the weekend for my hobbies, no matter how awesome the activities are!
