First one was downtown at the Montgomery County fairgrounds arena. That seemed to flop. This weekend the show was moved to the Clark County fairgrounds (Springfield, just off I-70.) Seemed to be a last minute change of location.
Anyhow, these places are smaller than Hara and dealers don't seem to be too interested in getting tables. I am possibly dead wrong but perhaps Goodman could be persuaded to GIVE us a table now.
I may stop at Springfield tomorrow since it's not far past where my group shoots on Sundays. Will try to get a feel for whether it's even worth OFCC'S effort to see about setting up there.
While I'm spitballing ideas on this thread, consider another thing: If HRC wins next month, gun shows may get very crowded again. Show promoters may suddenly balk at giving tables to groups like ours when there's a long waiting list of dealers willing to pay top dollar for them.
Guess we don't have to worry about that for time being....hee....hee
