The National Convention is happening July 13–16, in Lancaster, PA, not at the York Center, but at the convention center next to the Marriott hotel. It looks like a good event this time around, so I already made my reservations. Here is the convention website. https://natcon.nawcc.org/

If you're going I'm up to setting up a meet-up for maybe a dinner outing or a visit at the NAWCC museum for a mini Gruenfest (G-Fest). Rolling Eyes

We could get a crowdfunding campaign going, raise enough money to bring you, Barney and Thojil over?

Okay, with some thought, we shouldn't need to start a Kickstarter campaign, but here's what I suggest if you all get serious about it...

I have room at the Marriott Hotel and can accommodate a guest, Barney. That would save you $600, and you could stay with me at no cost; I promise I don't snore. Twisted Evil

Jenneke, I can check with our director to see if she has room or if someone on her staff can accommodate. Since I'm helping the director set up the mart, I can surely ask her.

Now if we decide to do a Kickstarter then...

-Pledge without reward. $10 Unlimited Qty
-Pledge with Gruenfest. 1 dinner ticket at the Lancaster Convention. $50 Qty 25??
-Pledge with a vintage Gruen watch (generic). $75 Qty 20??
-Pledge with a Quardron Gruen watch. $150 Qty 4??
-Pledge with a Pan Am Gruen watch. $300 Qty ??

Later we can come up with a Kickstarter goal statement if we serious about this.

Allthough this convention is probably a Gruen walhalla… and it would be nice to come over, I think the bargains wont justify the travel. Cool

No direct flight, 2O hr stop over starting at 1200 dollar. Beter to save it for a regular holiday to The USA (one day). Very Happy

Is there a discount for combined shipping?
