It worked great for our August event.

    I could go to Vegas alone, but the trip would have little value without the Crew coming along.
    We are in the same boat. I totally agree that it's difficult to get the full effect of something without brainstorming with your tech and design group. Even bringing back photo's and video's just isn't quite the same. This is the same reason why we've never made it to Hauntcon.

    Man...I really want to go to this...but I would feel guilty without the guys.

    Maybe I can win our plane tickets home at the blackjack table?

    We always went to Rosemont. Was there last weekend for a Chevy Vette Fest and was sad that we weren't going to be back for the Halloween Show. Doubt that we will ever make the Vegas show due to cost.
    Do you think people will be out gambling more than buying at the show?
    Rather have it at Chicago but l'm sure l'm a minority on this

    I wish transworld would stay in Chicago. My husband's family are from
    Mt. Carroll the same place Ravin's Grin is located and this was going to
    be the year we were going to go to stay with his family and then drive
    up to Transworld but sadly thats not going to happen.
    I have never been to Las Vegas and I do not think I will ever go there.

    Yes, Kimmy, the Ravens Grin bus from Los Vegas will be a pricey ticket this time, the trip back to Vegas will seem to take forever won't it!
    One thing I know about Los Vegas, never go swimming in a pool with large amounts of cash on you! Look what happened to that nice Presley boy when he went swimming there! Lost all his money!

    I've been watching the TV show Las Vegas. Tom Seleck as the new owner of that casino and all of his mysterious back story sure is entertaining. I never have to leave my living room, it all comes out of this glowing box.


    Another fabulous post from the U.S.Department of Wild Imaginings, now in spectaclar stereo, sponsored by the Adhesives and Sealants Council, suggesting ways to stick things together since the 1800s. Not fabulous in a gay way. Your results may vary. Illinois residents add 8% sales tax. These posts have been made by professional post makers, do not try this type of posting on your own without extensive training, lovely assistants and a trusty clown horn.

    I dont see why Transworld couldnt of went to Cincinnati or Indianapolis. Both those convention Centers are three times bigger than Chicago's.

    They had Transworld in Chicago because if the big airport right next door. This way if a really big celebrity showed up at Transworld, like King Kong or Godzilla, the cargo plane could make a landing .
