Thanks, Kenny!

I know some have already "gotten ready". I'll be on that soon, too. As you know, LAST year's convention was exceptional, truly worth every cent. One question, for now: will there be anyone else needing to split/share a room? If so..
I'm sure Spokane will be great.
So, let's all get our new belts, bags, attachments, gloves, etc, ready................

I am planning on coming, not sure about Shaylee and the baby. She wants too but we shall see.

If I had more vacation time I would drive it in a heartbeat. I LOVE that drive. It's only like 30 hours lol

How about another convention here on the east coast closer to NY and hopefully not on Fathers Day weekend, there are some Dad's that would love to attend a convention without missing time with their kids.

"on the east coast"

If any want to see 100s of vacs and parts in the east near Interstates 26,40 & 81 in a former vac shop that MUST be cleaned out and downsized with MOST prices from $0--$20 call me and set up a date of your choosing!!(more later and separately with pictures)

I will be there. This will be my first vacuum convention. My husband and I are driving our motorhome up. Since Spokane is his hometown, we are planning on visiting his family and friends while we are there. Looking forward to meeting new people.

WELCOME in advance!!!!!!!!!

You'll love it, and, we'll love having you there. As soon as I got to my first one, the great Terry Lattz came up to me, gave me a hug and said, "Hi, John. I'm Terry'.

Since I've never been to one before, is there a place/time to sell some vacuums? I was thinking of bringing some up with m to part with.

If you look at posts from last year and before you'll see lots of photos from the conventions. They're listed in the Vintage forum. They'll give you an idea. You'll enjoy it very much.

Awesome. Looking forward to it. Hope someone will recognize me. I look a little bit different than I do in my profile picture. A couple years older. LOL

It's time to compile the new list of

deceased members of the VCCC for our "In Memoriam" book, which will be at this summer's convention. Names? I know a few, but, I don't want to leave any recently deceased out.

It looks like things are going along nicely. There will be few changes this year. I still have to update the list of deceased members, etc.
It'll be great to see new faces as well as seasoned members. The VCCC... the original, the only............... still going.

The registration fee is needed to pay for the hotel and the convention room along with the free snacks and equipment provided by the hotel.
