Question for you NCOWS Convention Organizers. Can a non-member of NCOWS, but friendly to ya, come to the convention on Saturday just to browse through the 'merchandiser's' offerings and maybe meet some of you. I'm around 2.5 hrs from Davenport, but would be interested in coming for a look-see. Never have joined NCOWS due to no posse's close to my area and prior to recent retirement, it was hard to attend a Saturday shoot to the one's that were 2-3 hrs drive from home. Seemed like always catch up work to do around acreage and/or family functions (that is if I wasn't digging, pushing, or hauling dirt on Sat at work).

Absolutely, Crow. We'd be happy to have you visit. Day passes are always available at the door. Look me up - I'm the Secretary and can answer any questions you might have.

Of course. There is a fee but it's not much. We always welcome the public. That's one of the ways we get new members.

O look forward to meeting you.

Crow Choker, yes you are definitely welcome, last year we had 240 walk-ins over the
weekend. $5 for the day includes all the seminars. Or $60 for the whole weekend and
hopefully you will like our great group and decide to join

I spent the afternoon at the Buffalo Bill museum open house in Leclaire, doing living history
and I handed out about 40 flyers for the convention.

Last year we had 33 vendor tables, we are at about 50 now, but our conventioneer numbers are down
a bit so far. Although some people that were conventioneers last year have vendor tables. Remember
March 2nd is the cutoff for the $89 room rate so if you haven't reserved yet, better do it soon. And if
you or anyone you know is thinking about coming please get the registration sent in. I think we have
a very good convention set up, now we just need a bunch of our NCOWS family to make it special.

I plan to have lead for sale again.  It will be pure sheet lead which I'll attempt to weigh to get a ball park figure.

Anastasia's books has graciously donated a complete set of the Time Life old west series, with the index, to be raffled off
at the convention, we will have tickets at the front table.

Thank you all for the friendly invite's.

You should try every effort .... You will meet a mindset of folks and feel like family, like you've known them forever. Cheesy

Do go and enjoy, stay for the banquet...my bet you'll come away a member.

Davenport is a bit of bridge to far for me @ about 19 hours ,  @ 2.5 hour that's a breeze  Smiley


 I've been to KC ( flew)  , Shepherdsville (drove 11 hours ) , and it was 17 hours to Springfield Mo. that was ONE long day.
After that one and drive home , I expect I have no more interest in solo marathon drives.  Embarrassed 

I even two day the 835 miles driving distance from Evansville, Indiana to Orlando, Florida for the NCOWS National.
And speaking of the National , and should you join NCOWS, go to that , just about 6 hours East.

If you go , I'll leave a light on for ya

I sure wish you could be there.  It appears as if we will most likely never get together again. You won't be at the conventions and I won't be at the shoots. Oh well it's been nice knowing you.

Major, Alliant airlines fly direct from Sanford (Orlando) to Moline. We flew down there a couple weeks ago, and watched
ticket prices, and for both of us it was only $420 roundtrip

Some last convention things. Remember we are at a different location than last year, the Radisson, 111 East 2nd St. Pull
up front and check in first, and you will get a free parking pass. I could not get free breakfast thrown in on the deal, but there
is a restaurant there, and several more close by. We would appreciate any items for door prizes at the banquet. The long range
weather forecast looks good for those of you driving, so everyone should have good roads.
 So I'm very much looking forward to seeing everyone, drive safely and we'll see you soon.

I did mention that I'd have lead again this year. It will probably be the last time I have it since my supplier has dried up.
I haven't heard from anyone that they want lead so perhaps I shouldn't bother to bring it.

I will likely want some, depending on your asking price. Do you have anything but pure lead?  Like alloyed with tin and antimony?

No just pure lead. I do have a half of coffee can of wheel weights but I wasn't going to bring that. As for price I have no idea. Usually I let the buyers tell me what the going price is.
I think last year it was around $1.50 per pound. I only have a canning scale to measure with so it's a ball park figure.

Count me in for 40 pounds if you have that much, Will.
