Heading over from Australia for my second National. Went to last years in Baltimore. You are so lucky to have these card shows to attend. We get about one every three months down here

I will be there with my 11 year old son on Wednesday night, Thursday and Saturday.

Looking forward to getting with the folks at the National -

I would even consider putting Bammer and Nick up if they wanted the spare bedroom....

I'm flying in a few hours before the show on Friday and am taking a bus back to Minneapolis on Saturday night (if anyone is heading back towards Downtown/Union Station - I could use a lift or split a cab!). This'll be my first National - looking forward to meeting the guys at Blowout and many of the members here on the forum!

Will be there with my lovely wife Friday through Sunday - looking forward to it! It was cool it was just my birthday last week and my wife actually made hotel arrangements for two nights and arranged for our kids to spend the weekend with Grandma so we could just get away and enjoy the National as well as the Chicago area - don't forget everyone there is alot of cool stuff to do in Chicago! We plan to hit up the National during the day, and hit some nice restaurants and check out other cool stuff at night. I love Chicago - greatest city in the world hands down! It was also cool that she gave me a bunch of cash to go spend at the National - she gave me a really nice wall case last year for my birthday and I am going to continue to buy up some really nice singles to fill it.

Blowout - I will be visiting your booth daily and am ready to spend! We look forward to getting hooked up with the best deals around - looking forward to the National specials!! I hope everyone has a really good time. Also I am pretty sure Blowout will have plenty of deals - I remember over the past few years several cool deals that were offered - so even if not going, I'm pretty sure everyone will be happy with the deals put out by Blowout during National week.

I regret to inform other friends/members here that my son and I will not be attending. We just don't have the funds after a Minnesota state government shutdown. My wife works for the state and her pay loss will eat up any extra money we had available for this excursion. I have stated in a couple of threads that we would be there but we just can't swing it. We hope to make it in 2013 when it will be back in Chicago again. Huge disappointment for us, but worse things have happened. Hope all of you attending have a great time and please take pictures for us. We both wanted to see it up close.

STUMP
