Thanks to everyone for all the advises.
We will definitely try to stop and check every booth.
I will also make sure I stop by the boss both after lunch to taste the skeeter pee.
I can't wait to meet all of you.
Look like we are going to have a lot of fun.
Thanks again.

I'm leaning more and more towards driving down there. If I do I would only be able to go Saturday. Will there still be deals to be had by then? Will there be plenty of tailgaters?

Most NTA conventions have lots of tailgaters. Since tail gating is first come first served, no guarantee how many there will be.

There should be bargains on Saturday - dealers looking to lighten the load for the trip home.

Don't wait too long on Saturday to get there. About mid afternoon things usually start to slow down and dealers start packing up.

This is about as close as a national convention will get to Milwaukee, I would definitely take advantage of the opportunity.

Have fun.

I'd get there as soon as the gates open on Saturday, by noon at the FTA lots of folks were starting to pack up and leave. frown

You will have a great time my friend. Don't forget to sign the kids up for some of the events. Lots of stuff going on every day. Laura said that you could even help out in the booth if you run out of something to do, OR NOT. See you all there and have a safe trip.

The kids plan to get to Tamara as soon as it open on Thursday, Emma is not decided on witch workshop she want to get, you know her, she want to go to all of them.
I definitely plan to give you guys a break and spend some time at the TFHA booth.
Give Miss Laura a big hug or me and the kids.

Be safe too and see you in Pecatonica.

Hey guys and gals. My daughter decided to extend her time at science camp and won't be coming to the convention. I purchased tickets for My husband, her and myself to the Awards Banquet dinner on Thursday some time ago and now looks like it's just him and I. They don't have seating assignments it appears. Any families out there who have not purchased their tickets yet who could use it? Would like to see a kid use it and wanting to give it away so it doesn't go unused. It's yours for first to PM me with how to get it to you. I am coming in Wed night and will be there throughout. I could drop it at a booth, mail it tomorrow or meet up at the convention somewhere. See ya all next week.

Don, too bad you're at the Baymont in Rockford and not Freeport. Pretty sure Paul is there too.

Still interested in going to the Cubs game Tuesday afternoon but prefer to go with someone. Never been to Wrigley or even in Chicago for that matter. Any of you locals interested? Send me a PM.

I'm camping on the grounds. Are there showers available or do I bring a big sponge?

There is showers at the fairgrounds that I would assume would be open but I'm not for sure.
