I am concerned as well that we have only 4 positive respondents ( there are two more guys form the Dayton area that will join as well ( Boats and PaulH ).

I need those that were OK with the original dates to confirm their availability May 11-13 ( some already did and some dropped out due to conflicts ).


So please take the poll and let me know specifics via a pm with your positive response.


If we do not get at least 10 participants, we may not proceed.....


Isaac

I want to go, and I plan on going, but that saying about the best laid plans of mice and men applies double to me.

Thumbs up We need more participztion

Guys

So far there are 6 folks that indicated participation via this poll. And additional two more locals will join . So we are at 8 now.

We need more participation.

I'm out of town traveling, but will be back home at the end of the week and will provide the hotel reservation info.

Also

I need suggestions for activities and agenda

Isaac

I am looking for input from those attending and those that are not attending.

What topics would you like to see on the schedule?


Thanks

Isaac

Thumbs up Vendor participation

I stopped by at Marcos paper ( just south of Dayton ) and talked to the assistant manager there to see if they will join our paper convention May 11 weekend. I started by introduction to what paper modeling we do and pointed to our web site by showing it on my phone.

I left my contact information and hopfully will hear from them next week.

I think it would be a win-win situation as it will introduce their shop to visitors and participants, make some sales and for us to have another $50 to go toward the rental of the conference room.

Wills see.

I did notice that they have a very large selection of card paper of various sizes and qualities as well as cutting tools, pens, pencils, glues......

I also picked up sample card paper at 65 lbs Letter size and will compare it to my ever shrinking supply of Japanese A4 card at 160 gr. They said, they can cut card paper to any size including A4 . This is useful when printing kits that are designed on that paper format and often use the entire length and width which gets cut off in Letter size ( without re-scaling ).

They also have a working area for guests and there are short seminars given by folks on topics related to paper. Since none is of modeling, I may later on put on a presentation or a workshop to introduce new folks to our hobby.

Thanks John Wagenseil for the suggestion to meet them.

Here are some pics.

It seems like a natural fit. I hope they will respond positively.

If you get back that way, see if they have any metallic card stock that can be printed on by inkjet printers. I've been looking for a source since Red River stopped selling theirs.

I am not planning of being there for a while, but do look at the photo of one of their card stock bunch. It has their phone number and web site.

If I do stop by, I will ask them.

Question Flyer

Here is the flyer I created for our show and mini convention.
Dayton Paper Con 2018 May 11 to 13th-dayton-paper-modeling-show-convention.jpg

I downloaded some pictures from our web site ( if there is any objection, I will delete ).

Positive suggestions and comments welcome.

I will print and distribute starting next week sometime. You may also print and distribute at your area and maybe we can get a broader participation.

I did not include my email or telephone number for obvious reasons, but you can pm me here.


Isaac
