Posted By: <b>Alan</b><p>The National is only 2 months away. I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that I will be coordinating a dinner get-together on Friday evening, August 1 right after the National for vintage sports (incl FB) card & memorabilia collectors at a restaurant in Rosemont. The restaurant will be very convenient (a mile or two) to the National site. Absolutely anyone and everyone is invited !!! Everyone will pay their own bill for what they eat/drink. (Note that this dinner get-together is unrelated to Leon's official Net54 dinner on Thurs night)<br /><br />There is honestly no ulterior motive for me doing this. I just figure for collectors (& dealers) to get together - meet each other, see what others collect, talk about the hobby, etc,.... I am NOT a big buyer/spender, but I still enjoy the hobby very much, especially the social aspects. I don't know, maybe this is a way I can contribute to the hobby, since I certainly can't afford to buy much. <br /><br />I will post details as the show gets closer.<br /><br />Thanks very much.<br />Alan<br /><img src="http://vbbc.forumotion.com/users/17/23/61/smiles/136179.gif"> <img src="http://vbbc.forumotion.com/users/17/23/61/smiles/136179.gif"><br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Fred Goodwin</b><p>I'd love to meet fellow collectors in Chicago; I'm taking the family on vacation just so I can go to the National!<br /><br />Unfortunately, we have to leave Thursday afternoon because my son has to be back home for tennis tryouts at his high school on Friday.<br /><br />I hope everyone has a great time!

Posted By: <b>Alan</b><p>OK, Here’s the story. The dinner get-together for vintage sports (ALL sports) cards & memorabilia collectors will be on Friday evening, August 1 at about 6 pm (immediately after the National ends) at Shoeless Joe’s restaurant in Rosemont, Illinois. Here is their website:<br /><br /><a href="http://www.shoelessjoesrosemont.com/" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://www.shoelessjoesrosemont.com/</a><br /><br />The restaurant is very convenient (about 2 miles) from the National. I believe there are free shuttles that go there for those that don’t have cars. Absolutely anyone and everyone is invited (including spouses, children, etc,…) !!! Everyone will pay their own bill for what they eat/drink. (Note that this dinner get-together is unrelated to Leon's official Net54 dinner on Thurs night).<br /><br />RSVPs are encouraged since I need to let the restaurant know just how many people will be coming. RSVP here or e-mail me at jewishathletes@yahoo.com<br /><br />Let me know if you have any questions. <br />Thanks very much.<br /><br />Alan

Posted By: <b>Fred Goodwin</b><p>Looks like I won't be going to Chicago after all -- my employer is surplussing me and my family and I need to conserve resources til I land another job.<br /><br />I hope everyone has fun -- maybe I'll be able to go next year.
