I'll save the date and definitely should be there! 

Nothing can top my experience in Vegas meeting a lot of you for the first time,
but it should be just as incredible!

And a few thousand miles less to travel!

Great to hear you'll be there Paul! This show might even rival the Vegas show, especially for Wacky fans!

Ha! Yes, it's true Mark! And thanks for that very grand announcement! I'm blushing.

In all seriousness, the 2017 Allentown show represents a lot more than just another show to me. It's a culmination of 50 years of the Wacky Packages brand, the art, the humor, and most of all the loyal fans. In fact, I've known many of you for a long, long time (30 years in some cases) but I've met very few in person, so this show will have special significance for me. And in all honesty, it's likely to be my one and only appearance there, so I hope many of you can make it. To me, that's the most meaningful way to celebrate a 50th Anniversary!
I hope the pinball convention is that weekend too as if so, I am almost certain to come out.

Man I would love to go but I'm afraid the trip from Cali is just too much.  I hope those that go will keep us West Coasters in mind and grab extras of any Wacky 50th related goodness!

Too bad Jay said he wasn't doing shows anymore.  It would be great if he was there also.  I am going to try to make the 788 mile trip again in the spring

I was surprised that you and Linda weren't at this recent one, I'm really looking forward to the spring show.

The Spring show looks like a bust for me.  IT is the weekend on the back end of spring break for my kids school.  I think it was a bad idea for them to move show so early in April as opposed to May as I bet many will have other plans and I bet many schools have spring break the week after Easter.

With all of these great artists attending this show; I think it should be sub-titled "Wacky / GPK SketchFest 2017"

I bet we see some pretty cool sketches and artwork for sale at this event.

Way to go Brian, April can't get here soon enough for me, If we can get Brute 88-Brian L. Hipton-Cheryl S, and even JFK, Andy Herrmann, John Kosturik, etc. We will definitely have the definitive line-up of the best Wacky collectors on this planet.

I already have my hotel reservations, so I'm hoping to attend this year.  It's probably been 20 years since the last one I attended.  I ran into Ernie at a MAC machine getting cash.  I didn't know who he was at the time.

You going to be there both days?  I could possibly make it on Sunday as I return from vacation on Saturday.

I hadn't really thought about what days.  I made hotel reservations for Thursday through Sunday.  It would be nice to see the old* gang again.
