No.1 we need to find out when we need to be at the show.
No.2 We need to find out cost (if any)
No.3 We need to find out how many will guarantee staffing...
No 4 we need to find out if GBO COL. might reschedule...and HOW they will let vendors know...
No.5 We need to find out how to communicate with all volunteers and perhaps carpool if we can link up decently....
No.6 contact info for all...and a call tree perhaps...

1.  0900 or as close as possible.
2.  Shouldn't be a fee, but I don't know.  Fred does, and he'll pass that info later.
3.  ?  Do you mean how many instructors will commit to working the show?  That won't be a problem.
4.  Let's leave that problem until it's a confirmed problem.  Last I heard, show's still on.
5. and 6.  I have contact info for many of you.  However, I treat that as confidential.  There is a carpooling board in another part of the forum, and you can post carpool requests there.

Welcome, IP!

please pm me with your city of residence, and contact information if you wish.  I will involve you in the program as much as you like.

Also, you are invited to the meeting this weekend.  See above for details.

hawkeye/law  man, you can go either place.  The Kid coming too?

PS  We now have 17!

By the way, I have been reminded to mention that anyone attending the show should wear Appleseed garb.  T-shirts, hoodies, polos, caps.

I'm sure The Kid will come along too. Sucks not being able to drive. Welcome new folks we have a great group of instructors here in NC. Maybe that's why we get people from all over the world coming to our Appleseeds. With the Appleseeds and the field shoots we have a good all  around programs at the home range in Ramsuer.

Hey, I'm just feeling the love, brother.  I've been contacted by North Carolinians tonight that I didn't know were involved in Appleseed.  My master list of forum members in NC just rose to 48!  Far as I'm concerned, we've had a damn good night!

So I'll see Fred a little before 9 am Saturday at the show.  Just to state the obvious, I'm assuming if we're working the show we don't stand in the long line to get in.  Anybody know the location of the exhibitor's entrance??

Should we join up together at a local restaurant or entrance gate?

Welcome, Byrdman!

Read over the thread, it'll catch you up.  Can you make the meeting Saturday?  If so, let me know if you want to pack boxes or work the show.

Never mind.  I just saw your post on the other thread.  I'll come to GM if I don't see you earlier.

Good idea, Tareece.  Who would like to set a rally point near the show?  I would, but I don't know where it is.

Hey Stimey and txpirate,

I reckon I'd be OK with that, K.

NC had 19 show up so far, how about TX?

At last count we had 25. That's without putting you two transplanted Texans on the list. I'll put you two down though, but not on the official count.

If you count Fred, we're at 20, so we're doing really well.  I'm OK with being counted twice, if you think Matt and me are worth it!

I know the area around the GSO Coliseum pretty well.  I'm assuming everyone will either be coming towards the show on either 40E or 40W.  If you take the High Point Road exit and head towards the coliseum, there is a Burger King just up the block on the right.  It's probably about a mile from there to the coliseum (would allow us to meet up without fighting gun show traffic till we find each other).  There are other places that are a little closer, but they're not popping into my 49-year-old mind at present.  Thoughts??

Sounds just right.... 8 to 8:25 to allow for stragglers or late arrivals???

Yeah, let's do that.  We'll plan to leave BK at 8:30 and get to the show and in around 8:45, since we should be in before the "customers" arrive.

Or do we need to be earlier to set up.  Is someone setting up Friday afternoon/evening??

I think all the moisture was screwing with the lines. Haven't had that problem in while.  Should of have worked late last night... !@#)
