We get closer to havi ng a booth there every year, but I am afraid this year won't be the year. It is a pretty expensive endeavor when you don't gain anything but more free memberships, and maybe a new sponsor or two..however because it is such a big show and in PA we are always tempted to be there. It would be worth while, heck I have even got a cool booth planned out if we ever do make it.
From others who booth there I was told to avoid the the "hallway", so once you do that it gets pricey.
Also very tough to schedule coverage to man a booth all week long, I'd have to burn vacation to do it as would many others...
MANY FORM HPA will be there though, I hope to bring my troops out for the first time ever, likely close to the second weekend and of course will have HPA gear on. But I know many from that immediate area will be there too.
Really wish we could put a booth there just for the membership to have that meeting spot, just can't swing it in the budget.

Weather permitting I will be there on Saturday the 5th. If RB blesses it, I have some decals I can bring along (that I still haven't sent back to him) if anyone is interested. I would be happy to pick a time and place to do a little shake and howdy and get some decals in your hands.
