Joe requested it, so here it is. I am sure that you will be able to get signed copies of "Great War Dawning" there.
As always, we are looking forward to seeing everyone at Louisville in a few months. Do we need a mannequin for the table,and if so, which one? Maybe Portuguese?

Guys--
I thought the idea was to encourage collectors to come to SOS and hang out with you. If you keep being so silly on a public forum you're going to scare away the "normal" people! :-$

Cheers,
Peter

Peter,
Normal people are by definition average. We strive not to be normal, but extraordinary. OK, some of us are just weird, but we have fun;)

Peter is right.

There are so many reasons to go to SOS. The most important of which is becoming a known entity. Putting a face with the avatar. You would be surprised how many deals are worked under the table. Prices are better and selection is greater if people know who you are. You can also get some pretty good opinions from a number of people. This really is a shout out to the "lurkers." Those people who read this forum pretty religiously but do not participate. I know there are many as I have emailed many of you. Without question the best bang for your money are research books and the best place to go is SOS. You can learn things and hear things that you will not read on this forum. Many of the top people in this collecting community will be there. This is a great opportunity if only the floor was not made of concrete. I even get tired in a wheelchair. Thinking about those who are walking miles and miles… One of the great things about the show is that you have a home base. A member here can use the tables frequently to stash their purchases and/or coats. Any extra money you wish to give away you can just put in your pocket and Gus will go through your pockets while you are walking the show. There is a pretty nice and constantly growing girls group. These are the nice-looking ones that we drag with us. They get together and do something different – can you believe they don't hang out at the show? There are regularly evening drinking parties in the Robinson room. We get a suite and there are lots of hands-on show and tell opportunities to see what people got. There are some dealers that everyone frequents including Stewart's and AGM. Randy Trawnik regularly has a small selection of helmets from the age of Kings. The people there will regularly accompany you to a "find" on one of the tables before you purchase it to validate/give it another set of eyes. The home base gives you a place to get off your feet as we regularly have extra chairs for people looking for postcards. It's a lot of fun and Gus does not smell that bad.

This might not be as true right now, as we are remodeling our bathroom, and we have only had an indoor commode for a couple of weeks, but will not be able to shower for another three weeks as we wait for the floor to set. I hope to be able to shower before coming to SOS, but I can not be sure of it.

There really is so sad. Easy to understand difficult and expensive from down under and Europe. Some Europeans make it a pilgrimage but I don't think I've seen anyone from Oz. it is really too bad. We would love to have you and many others. We just got back from a cruise in northern Europe where about 25% of the passengers were from Australia. That is one heck of a flight to Copenhagen and incredibly expensive.

FYI... the hotels are expensive for SOS 2015. I did a search and everything close is a lot more than last year or the year before. I'm booked at the lovely Rodeway Inn! Ugh.

Ray with the Japanese swords who sets up next to my tables actually did sleep in his truck last year. I begged him to get a room this time, as he has a heart condition and as much as I'd like another table I don't want poor Ray to die because he didn't want to spring for a room!

Hey wait, I have a heart condition and you never begged me to get a room, what gives?

At 200 bucks a head I would have some spending money, but the restrooms at the camping area are not always the best. I thought James was a tough northern climate sort of guy, but he whined about having to break the ice before he used the toilets, heck it was not even a half inch thick.
As far as the heart condition goes, I guess it is not too bad, because my last pharmacist did not really like me,and he would substitute laxative for my heart meds. When he retired, I could not believe how much better I felt. If you want to stir up your doctor, tell him that your prescription ran out a month ago and you did not have time to get them renewed.

I saw that the dates for SOS 2016 are in April. That means a longer wait for the show but hopefully much better weather.

Well, as a 'lurker', and educator, it's impossible for me to get away for SOS. Then, after I retire, I doubt my pension will allow me to buy food, much less Pickelhaube! I guess I'll have to keep lurking, but if you want to have a 'face with the name', well then, you asked for it!

It's nice when the helmet is better looking than the owner. :wink:

:D Ron

PS, I hope this is the right photo! I'll have to look when I get home.

I agree. The helmet is nice, but not many people have the class to have Pfalz and a DH-2 hanging in their kitchen.

Very true, not many people have a wife who tolerates aircraft models over the sink and the Graf Zeppelin over the front room entrance as well as a large De Havilland Dragon Rapide floating around the bedroom ceiling (I won't even get into the 1/6 scale M5A1 in the basement), but then she knows I love to make scale models... and that I'm a bit of an eccentric at times.

Thanks for the compliments on the helmet all. It's one of my several favorites, which include a couple of beauties I purchased from members of this forum!

:D Ron

I hear this but you live in Wisconsin. That is not that far away. You could drive down for one night. Considering how far Gustavus drives you have not convinced me. I think you are just whining! :-({|=

Perhaps, perhaps, LOL. WE hear that a lot in Wisconsin, :wink: I used to drive to Fort Knox for a weekend of tank driving, but always in the spring or summer (and would LOVE to drive to Louisville in those seasons, as I could stop at Fred Ropkey's and shoot the bull there too). Here in the great white north, a day trip can easily turn into a three day trip due to weather. It's a chance I can't take as a teacher on salary.
By the way Joe, it snowed 1/4 inch here last night, I know in Texas they would've closed the schools for that. :wink:

Best to you always Joe. (that helmet looks GREAT on the shelf)

:D Ron

Not a Pfalz, it is an Albatros DV, not sure of the pilot though.

Actually an OAW DIII Italian front piloted by Oberleutnant Joseph Loeser, but it's not all that important. http://www.redfroghobbies.com/prods/RD0608.jpg

18+ inches of snow north of us... skiing soon!

That makes sense, the Austrians were the first to use the rounded rudder that was incorporated into the DV if I recall correctly.

Well, I'm not a WWI aircraft expert and can't tell a D V from a D III, although I can tell a Fokker FI from a DRI, which is pretty simple. For me, modeling is very relaxing and a lot of fun. Right now, I'm working on the old Revell 1/28 scale Fokker DRI, number 152 which was one of v. Richthofen's aircraft. It was sad to learn that this particular example had been preserved in Berlin until it was lost during WWII. Too bad the next commander of the squadron couldn't have had IT hidden in a mine somewhere as well.
Of course, in the US, they melted down the A7V during that time, leaving only one original left in Australia (and a NICE replica in the Panzer Museum Munster).
Okay, I'm done being off topic. I think.

:D Ron

Well over the last 5 years I have been unable, but now, as of 2 weeks ago I am in Virginia and I said I would go 2015. But my wife is due about 2 months later and work will have me busy over that weekend… We will see! 8 hour drive isn't so bad.

If you are looking for a German restaurant at SOS this is the place. You absolutely need reservations. They begin taking the reservations on six January. They are currently on vacation. It is not that far but it is car distance. The food is outstanding.

I am in the same boat Leone. as many of you already know we will not be attending this year. Janet has surgery. But during the show I should be at home helping her recover Therefore, I will make the same offer Tony made several years ago – send me your pictures and I will post them. You can send them by email – message them to my phone – use Facebook. Send me the pictures. I will make a little folder on Flickr and then upload them. That also means that I will nag you to death on your cell phones is you do not send pictures. Pictures of the show are more important than making money. We need to see Peter's banners for real in use.

Joe--
I am very sorry that you can't make it, but love comes first. Our best to you and Janet and we wish her a speedy recovery.

Send me your mobile number and we can shoot some photos to you as well.

Cheers,
Peter, Enid and Derrick

I can also make slides, as long as you have a projector and carrousel

I always hated doing slides, there was about 13 steps in the processing opposed to three for color negatives, but powerpoint presentations will never replace a good slide presentation in my book
