SOS 2019

Post by Gustaf » Thu Mar 08, 2018 1:48 pm

We need to get started planning for the next show, I think James has already sent in his table papers, I have changed the oil on the pick up and drained the holding tank on the camper, I am ready.

Already looking forward to it. I already paid for next year's show.

But first there is the Baltimore Antique Arms Show, Ohio Civil War & Artillery Show, OVMS in June, New England Antique Arms Show, MAX Show, OVMS in November and a couple Michigan Antique Arms Shows. I do enjoy the shows a lot! Throw in a Toronto Military Show, a few local shows and maybe the Chicago Civil War Show and I'll be walking a lot of aisles!

When I made hotel reservations the Hilton Garden Inn was already sold out. So I switched to the Holiday Inn. There must be a Barbie doll convention in town.

Amy,

You are coming! At last I can finally meet you. Do you still live in Singapore? What an international group we have!

I'm with Joe, are you bringing that old man who tries to move your helmets to his bunker for safe keeping too?

Yes, something big besides our show must be going on, rooms are hard to find.

I just got our rooms at same hotel as Joe!

Holiday INN Louisville Airport 447 Farmington Ave Louisville

we stayed there a couple years ago, not bad at all. Close to convention center.

I HOPE the dates don't move as we booked already. I'm pretty sure these dates are pretty much locked in stone, but I have enough other things to worry about.

According to my wife who does all of our bookings, this is common. Many hotels do not book this far ahead and if they do, the price is outrageous!

OOOOHHHH!That means the bunker in OZ is going to be unsecured, I will have to gas up the truck. You need to stop in Vegas after the show, the tables at SOS are much kinder than the ones in Vegas!

Poop! I have lost the map to Rod's bunker, I guess I will be seeing you both at SOS instead of driving to Australia next February.

Small man wearing cowboy boots and a large cowboy hat, whiskered face and glasses! :) All kidding aside, the tables are numbered, the Show booklet has a map showing table locations. In addition and more importantly, the Pickelhaubes.com Banner will be displayed above the tables.......Right James? :thumb up:

The other thing you could do is just take a good sniff. Gus is often located by his body odor. I will be in the cafeteria – selling smokes.

I have learned it is more fun to say "Do you smell popcorn?" instead of saying "Excuse me" when I fart.

You need to remember to look for James LeBrasseur's table, as it is in his name, not in the name of Pickelhaubes. It will be easy to recognize me, as I am the one who always has to stay at the table while every one else is out buying treasures.

On another note....my forum "Public Relations Team" sadly let me down at the Show as our Banner was "accidently" left behind somehow in Minnesota. :( This led to my most embarrassing moment of the Show when a member from Norway had to have me paged over the Show's PA so that he could find us. As usual, we left Gus behind to guard our tables and met a happy Norwegian who wanted to show us his latest purchase from Age of Kings....a Garde Train Batt Officer helmet. So all ended well and we did get some free publicity as "Pickelhaubes.com" was announced throughout the hall!

Haha bet u guys have a good time at the show. It will be easy to recognise me. I am Asian while my hubby is a white. I may hop around the hall without him as he is into guns while I want to go and look at pickelhaubes. I have stopped collecting for 4 years and just got back collecting last year. Bought a lot of nice stuffs creating holes in my back account. Sob sob

Do not think that being Asian we will be able to pick you out from the crowd. SOS is truly an international event, and a family event as well. Also, holes in the bank account are much better than holes in the collection.

We're already booked at the Super 8. Not a great hotel, but the price is right. I'd suggest booking early as there is the Gun Show and other events again the same weekend. The prices are likely to go really high again.
