My in-laws are wanting to come up and stay with us this Summer, so we worked it out that they will be here the week of the National. My wife has already agreed to let my oldest son and I travel to Chicago for the duration of the National, so we will be there.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again and meeting new members.

There will probably be some deal on the site for everyone else. Didn't they do the cheap UD blaster cases in past years? But I'm sure the good stuff will be saved for those of us actually there (as it should be).

I remember when Blowout came to the last National in Chicago. You guys were giving away a ton of stuff and were selling those UD blaster cases for like $20. I'm definitely going and buying from you guys again this year!

So the people who cant get off work and travel hundreds of miles cant get in on any action that the people around the Chicago area can get in on...its the biggest show of the year...Heck the west coast guys NEVER have a chance since its always in Bal, Chi town, and Clev

I really dont care I was just asking a simple question

Then they wouldn't be "National" deals, they would just be specials like Black Friday, 9/9/9, and all the other days they do deals for "those that can't take time off work and drive to the show".

Wont be making the trip to the Windy City as my 2 compadres the Bammer & Heavy "D" don't want to go, but I certainly hope that the special deals for the Convention attendees are great, and I'll be looking forward to some next year when your back in B-more

Doesn't Blowout give us deals all the time? Shouldn't "National" deals be reserved for those attending the "National?

Blowout mentioned giving away some free stuff, and you asked for deals for those not attending. Whether you were asking for free stuff or not, it sounded like it.

Maybe instead of just offering regular deals to only Blowout members, they should give deals to non-Blowout members as well.

I understand that the squeaky wheel gets the grease, but it gets old constantly seeing people ask for things.

That's too bad. I was hoping to run into you again. If you change your mind, let me know.
