I won't be setting up, but I'll be there as a buyer.
Hope to see you there!

Ethan,
Pretty sure there are usually around 90 indoor vendors. There are quite a few outdoor vendors too.

Bob, I the Peotone show on of the shows where they don't let repo vendors in? The spring show i don't remeber seeing any and was just wondering. I need a few things to finish a pump and thought it would be nice to save on shipping.

John,
They allow reproductions. Vendors are supposed to have their repro signs and globes marked. There was a vendor selling repro globes and signs in March. The restoration parts suppliers have stayed away from the show for some reason. I guess maybe we should ask the parts dealers why they don't set up there. Its not a big show, but its a good show.

Any of you oldgas members from Wisconsin or Michigan planning on attending?

Bob "Lastgas15" talked me into coming to Peotone. I'm dropping everything. I'll be there, but no pants-swappin' or cow shoppin' for me. Got to get my camera batteries charged up. Bob is going to show me downtown Kankakee.

I'll look around Dwaine. But seems like I see more horse's rear ends than cow's. I think AquaElvis should name his cow Priscilla after the original King's girl.

I'm getting excited about the show. I bought some great globes at the March show. I won't be there during set up so the "deals" will be gone, but I expect to find something that I "gotta have". There's usually an abundance of pumps at Peotone. Can't wait to see some of my oldgas buddies too. Rex, John, David, and Jim will make the trip. Anyone else? If so let me know ahead of time. Especially if you're coming in on Saturday.

Looks like the weather will be clear for the show. The rain has already passed through. It might be a little cool tomorrow though. Maybe the outdoor vendors will be "motivated" to sell.

John and David, don't take too long delivering that pump. Rex, Jim and I might eat all the food before you get here. LOL. Looking forward to seeing all the "oldgasers" tonight, and at the show tomorrow.

Anyone else making the trip? If not, you're missing a good show!

Well sorry to say I won't be there. New washing machine, dog knee surgery, and ski club for the kid this month have wiped all my chances. CHA-CHING! I'll be waiting to see the pics.

Later,Bill
