Anybody doing any deals for the poor unfortunate gamers (like me) who will not make it to Historicon this year?

You get a discount of $100 USD+ on lodging, and--at a guess--$200 on an average in car mileage. Plus HMGS' fee.

I'm booked to attend, but with family complications pending. If I don't make it, a couple of dealers are going to get nice orders out of the money I'll save.

Sorry you won't be attending, we will, as we always do, offer specials for those who attend the convention at the event.

Recreational Conflict will have free postage for the month of July since we could not get into Historicon. And we may add some free stuff to orders over $50.00 USD.
We have new DEEZEE Terror Birds, Tiger Afghan Regulars (2nd and 3rd Afghan Wars), New Lucid Eye Miniatures, Loads of animals, figures for Congo and Death in the Dark Continent, and much more.

"If I don't make it, a couple of dealers are going to get nice orders out of the money I'll save."

True, but what about waitresses at IHOB, they'll be disappointed you won't be having breakfast in their establishment during the convention, think of them before you decide not to attend………………..

Do we HAVE to do "eating in Lancaster" again, GG? Anyway, I think the WAWA will miss me more. The meals vary, but I always gas up on the way in.

But it's not a matter of deciding: it's when the grandchild arrives. I'm hoping for the convention and one good night's sleep on my return before I have to drive to Nebraska, but the obstetricians aren't making any promises. (What sort of scheduling is "July 16th--give or take two weeks?")

Save me a couple of boxes of 1/72 fallschirmjaeger--WITH PANZERFAUST, please--and I'll do my very best to pick them up.

"I always gas up on the way in."

Yep, that's what eating at WaWa will do to you.

(Sorry Robert, I just couldn't leave that one alone!)

Hope to see you again at next Cold Wars!

Hey, I haven't abandoned hope of Historicon yet. If I can get just a little cooperation from the daughter in law, I can still do both. All I need is a delivery in the last half of a four-week window. Everyone else seems happy to deliver late.

And by funning, I meant the IHOB crack, not the congrats on the baby part……………;)……………
