    We'd probably pick up a dozen or more of the shirts to sell. Various sizes.
    Obviously pricing could affect that decision.

    I should have a price quote by the end of the weekend. I will keep you posted. Also did you see the post where I replied Tina and I would be willing to help you unpack for the show. You can e-mail me at jwiggin@testors.com so we can get on the same page. I will be there Friday setting up displays.

    Hemi, thanks for the compliment. We should have these in a white T-Shirt and ready before Galesburg. No price yet, but soon!

    Jim,

    I really need to know if Tina is going to need a table at the lecture hall area. I have another vendor who is lusting after that spot.

    What's the "Steak House" is that the Packing House? I have made reservations for dinner that evening with my family of 5. I may try to seek other members out at the show. I figure we'll split our time between Seminary street, the train show, and the yard tour?

    Harry, looks like Tina will be so busy helping me that she will not have time to sell since she will be busy with me, please let the dealer have it. Also did you get that PDF for the seminar? I e-mailed to you on Tuesday.

    Clint, will do!

    Chris the Packinghouse is downtown near the Amtrak depot, the Steak House is on Henderson. I'll be taking a head count of all the TB members this week so we can make reservations there. I'll PM you.

    It will be on display both days at the library along with Sellecks Galesburg Station. A new prize has been added to both of the paint seminars on Saturday and Sunday. Each participant of the seminar will be eligable to win a complete airbrush, compressor, cleaning station and accessories. I'm also throwing in a bottle of Polly Scale BNSF yellow, green and orange. Harry has sold the last table. Tina will be at the College on Friday morning, helping Harry get things set up and working with dealers.

    Quick Update for dealers!

    I talked to Harry and I wanted to remind all of our dealers that frequent the board. The official set up time on Friday the 23rd is at 1:00PM. Tina and I will be helping George from Wig-Wag as he is one of our largest dealers, I will also be helping out another large dealer. I will be working with Harry to help with displays and some dealers.

    Ok, I think I'm finally ready to leave for Galesburg. We had a bad storm roll in this morning and it took out phone and internet. I will be in Galesburg tonight and will try to keep you all posted while I'm down there. See you all soon!

    Jim.

    Ok at this rate, there is no way in Heck I'm posting with that number of posts in my post box. Considering the luck we have had with equipment, weather and all I would rather leave you all with post #667.

    Superstitious Jim.
