Thumbs up Dayton Paper Con 2018 May 11 to 13th

based on feedback, we have a new date for our mini paper convention in Dayton.

Here are the details
  • Arrival and set up Friday May 11
  • Day 1 Group dinner Saturday May 12
  • Day 2 and finish Sunday May 11
  • Touring the Air Force museum as a group or on your own any day


Cost to rent the hall/room is $160 per day. So for 3 days it is $480 ( or rounded off to $500.

If we get 10 people, the cost per person will be approx $50 , not including food or hotel room. 20 people will bring it down to $25.

I will not make folks share the cost other than an even cost sharing to rent the hall for the 3 days. So bring as many models as you can. I will get as many tables as it take!

Questions for the poll are a repeat of the previous one. So please confirm again.

the answer is only YES to these questions. There is no NO option in the poll

1 - Will you participate/display May 11 to 13th ?
2 - Will you bring more than 10 models ?
3 - Do you need a room at the Hope hotel for your stay

Based on the previous poll, I got 13 positive or near positive responses of participation. I would like 20 positive responses knowing that there may be last minute changes.

The room can accommodate at least 20 of us displaying an average of 10 models each.

The venue is at the Hope Hotel in Dayton:
https://www.reservations.com/hotel/t...SAAEgLlRfD_BwE

The nightly guest room will probably be around $90 per night. It will be up to you to call and reserve your guest room. I will block at least 7 rooms, so PM me with your requests if you need multiple rooms.

Dinner will be a group event, but each of us will pay for our and your guest food.


I want positive responses!


Isaac

The Memphis Belle hoopla is one reason I changed the date for the paper con.

I plan to also be at the museum, but not distracted away from the paper meeting


So who else is joining the paper convention in Dayton?

From those participating, please propose what you would like to see and do over those 3 days.

workshops for techniques, tools, supplies, demonstrations....


Also, any ideas on raising money to pay for the conference room.

should we charge the public when they visit? Hobby shops ( not sure if they have any paper builders visit their shops ).

ideas?



Isaac

Looking good, Isaac. The auction at the past conventions has generated some funds, and is a lot of fun. As far as charging the public, I think that is a way to really limit attendance - probably low anyway - but a contribution box would probably attract some moola. Maybe some contributed models for sale to general audience would help. I have a few that will never get built that I will part with.

I agree. We will not charge the general public since we want as many to come thru. Maybe have them build some simple kits and have them drop a few coins in the collection box.

I do have some kits we can sell ( not many ), and that is another way to raise some extra cash.

send more ideas.

Good Evening,

The first year might not work too well for raising money. I don't have any ideas for bringing in money... But, it's good not to charge admission since we hope this event raises interest in the hobby, so we want to "invite people in" to look around.

It's kind of worrisome that only 4 have committed to coming, so far.

Take care,
Kurt
