I looked on the events page and it lists the 2009 date. I was wondering when this is going to take place as I don't want to schedule any work for that weekend.

I am exploring the possibility of coming down again, but this time not with a 24 ft truck filled will neon signs. Gas pumps this time. Which hotel would be close and safe, as last time I believe that I was in the wrong place. Lots of stuff to see.

Thinking of bringing 850 Tokheim, Simplex, National Oil can cabinet with station lite, Tall 39, Eco air & water, Wayne visible, Shell one piece globes, Possibly the DM 450 double clockface or Clearvision canadian Double. Have to see how much room and weight I can carry. Most of the pumps are in primer with plating done. Maybe I can stand next to Mike so that he can make me look good, and meet Uncle Dick.

Andrew (and anyone else), you definitely want to be there Friday. I think a few guys want to "mark' there territory (as I do for Ted in the Lodi corner) on Thurs. Set up is Friday A.M. & selling all day & Sat. as long as people keep buying. Craig, hope you make the trip down, always enjoy seeing your killer stuff. Not that far off.... make plans now!!! P.S. Silver Bullets are not only allowed, they're welcome here (we get a lil thirsty running this thing;))

7am is fine with me. It's about a 2 hour drive from my house.

I hope I can get that day off. A coworker already has it off and we can't have two people off the same day unless the work volume is low. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it'll remain low that week.

Getting LOTS of calls about the bash. Might be the biggest one yet. We have plenty of room for vendors & lots of parking for buyers. NO charge to get in....we want the vendors to profit, not us!!! Food & beverages on site. If you're "on the fence" about it, fall off on the side that sez "get yer A** there"!!!!

Flyers have been distibuted. If you haven't received one, you can call Fred @ (707)-291-1666. Same price as last year to vend. Ray, you & Ken have tables reserved. Bring some more of your good stuff!! I'll be there a week early & Fred & myself will have flyers posted at all the local "car" places & craigslist ad will be going that week. We're getting lots of calls & people have been stopping by the ranch to look at the signs Fred has put up. If you've never been to this event, it's good one.

I spoke with the marblehead yesterday and he won't be able to make it. I won't be there either unfortunately. Already looking ahead to 2011 though, The AACA is holding their Grand National meet in Santa Rosa on Aug. 24-28. It's the ultimate car show, would be nice to have Fred's meet near that time.

Also some smalls and duplicate's from my collection. I am still pulling stuff off the walls, so if you like Flying A stuff, be at Fred's on Friday.

The truck is packed. Really cool old Cycol sign sticks out the back, can't close the tailgate. i plan to roll in on Thursday afternoon and setup on Friday AM. Tom I have some big signs so I will need a wide booth. Thanks and see you soon.

Craig

Osbeck, I take off at Grants Pass and go down 101. The road is good once you get out of the Redwoods. I get sick of that I-5 bump bump bump...... if you know what I mean. Look forward to seeing you.

You can take I-5 or 99 to 12 and head westbound through Fairfield towards Napa. Then go to Petaluma and head north on 101. However, in my opinion, the money you spend on the toll will be well worth the time you'll save.

Now I am getting excited and I am too old to work all night to get these pumps ready. Its going to rain here on the weekend and I am in desperate hope that there will not be rain there. Anybody know what the weather is going to be ? May have to use a different truck.

Craig, forecast is for partly cloudy skies on Fri. with temps about 80. Sat. there is a chance of showers with temps mid 70's. Hope this helps with decision on which truck to use. Ruben, not sure on the best way for you to get here. Hwy 12 is pretty straight through Rio Vista but on the other side of I-80, it's pretty windy & some narrow 2 lane areas. See you guys Friday!!!

12's a slow drive through some small towns in wine country. fun drive, but not when you're trying to make time. shell out the bucks for the Richmond-San Rafael 580 bridge.

I understand that in addition to the Lodi Corner, there will be a "penalty corner" for point of sale "deal busters" ("I have one just like that, I paid $10 for it, how much are you about to pay?")

Also the fantasy sign police will supposedly be going around taking note of repro signs made out of aluminum not steel, or too much plastic not porcelain on refaced and refurbished items. ;-D

There's lots of construction work on 101 between Novato and Santa Rosa, the lanes narrow in a number of places.

Drive safely, get to the show in one piece.

Sure that figures..............I started this thread and I can't make it to the show ! I've got way too many repair jobs going on. They're all time sensitive so that just adds to the pressure. I'm greatful for the work but it would be nice if the jobs were spread out a little. Two months from now I'll probably be wondering where my next meal is coming from !

I guess my for sale items will have to wait for the next show. It's OK, I like looking at them.

I sure hope somebody will post some pictures so I know what I'm missing.

It was great to see everyone there and to hang out with you guys. I would have loved to stay much later, but had to pick the kids up. Picked me up some goodies at the show. Wanted to get more, but just picked up two other items the day before the show. Here are the items I got.

I had fun at Fred`s. Picked up two pumps. One on credit, some people make it too easy to get stuff. I have a big two sided Shell sign on the lay-away plan and now a pump on credit. In the past I got four other pumps on lay-away or credit.

Photos will be posted by Pollyman in a little while. Just p/u the tables & garbage from the field. Thanks to everyone who set up & bought. You made our "job" very easy. Should be the same weekend next year. Heard positive comments for the most part (can't please everyone...) Quality stuff & more importantly quality people attend this event every year; thanks again, Fred & Tom

Tom - What a great show! Got there around 7:30 with a friend and stayed for a couple of hours. What's not to like? Easy parking, great weather, and terrific selection of "stuff" (as my wife calls it). Only thing we missed was the bbq, but sometimes it's hard to make 10 or so "passes" around the area when the friend doesn't have the same level of "affliction"!!! Great job and look forward to next year!

This was, by far, the best and most vendors I can remember from all the years I've gone. I did well selling the final few signs from my collection and Tom did a great job setting this up. I understand that Fred can "take it or leave it" so we need to keep Tom excited. I have a very few signs left from my collection. Check ebay the next couple of days. Thanks again Tom

I think that I was one of the first "buyers" to arrive on Friday. I got there at 6:30am. Still was dark and foggy. Mostly everyone still asleep. I left around 11:30am.
