I plan on going to the show this year!
I have not been to the DC show before.
I've been to the NY/NJ show,
and the Philly show several times!

I look forward to it all year long. I do wish that the show's website was more up-to-date regarding what's going on this year--still a lot of 2008 show information and it's less than 2 months away!

Gah! I've been looking forward to the show since I missed the show last year - but as it turns out, I have to fly to Minnesota for a wedding that weekend.

Are they going to update the links? The show isn't that far off and it would be nice to know if there are shuttles etc available.

Richard, your list is a mile long of folks waiting for you to work on their pens. It's a wonder you get a free moment at all during the show. Are you planning to teach another seminar? No schedule is yet posted.

Cash saved up from lunch money - hopefully enough to buy some ink.

Any chance that there will be some of the new Noodler's V-Mail inks? Maybe Chuck Swisher will bring some.

Already made our hotel reservations and look forward to seeing many of you at this show. As for ink, I am trying to get an extra table, if I do I plan to bring most of the Noodler's inks. If not I will still bring the V-mail series (including the Dark Matter). C'ya in August!

Best wishes,
