July 2018 Nationals
|Discussion in ' Shows' started by gary lopez - May 20th, 2018 9:21 pm.|
Rooms and Rides; The Marriott is completely full. There are only a few rooms left at the overflow hotel, the Hotel Lancaster. If you haven't made your reservations, please do so asap.
if you have booked a room, have an extra empty bed, and looking for a partner to share, please post up here or on Joe's board for potential guest willing to share cost. If you are flying in, Philadelphia, Harrisburg, and Balt/Wash, are all viable options. As each is over an hour drive from Lancaster, shuttles back and forth to the Host Hotel will not be available. Please look to post up here or on Joe's board for potential ride sharing. Car rentals and Uber would be other options.
I've had several folks ask if anybody is bringing display cases for sale. Please let me know, or post if you are.
There is a fairly complete collection of Heddon Hi-Tails coming. and it will be for sale.
We will be having a lure toss on Thursday night in the convention hall. Beaters 3" to 6", no hooks, no extra weights or modifications allowed. Limit 3 beaters per member. Lures can be donated or given to young collectors attending Nationals.
Don't forget to renew your membership prior to July 1, the start of new fiscal year. If you recently joined you will be getting club material/magazines along with the June Gazette release.
There are tables remaining, but they are moving fast. If you haven't yet registered for the Nationals, and sent in your table requests, please do so asap. We will be finalizing floor layout in the next couple of weeks. Once finalized, we will not be able to add additional or extra tables.
If you are brining a display and have not yet contacted me, please do so asap. One 8' table provided free for displays.
Consider bringing a sheet or some other covering for your tables if you are leaving them set up. We will be locking doors Thursday and Friday nights, with no one left in the hall. If you leave your table unattended during the show, you do so at your own discretion, and the NFLCC is not responsible for any items lost or stolen.
Information on public attendance will be posted in the June Gazette. Temporary memberships for public will be available Thurs to Saturday.
I have received an exhibitor "toolkit" PDF file from Marriott/Convention staff, containing information on parking, loading in and out, driving directions, and a map of the Host Hotel and Convention Hall area. Let me know if you would like a copy. I will try to have put up on our website as well.
Please let me or cohost Dan Peltz know if you have any questions

The exhibitor toolkit has been posted under the Nationals Show info under our upcoming shows listings. Driving directions to the event, instructions on loading and unloading into the showhall from the alley behind the Convention Hall, and a local area map are all within the file. If you are room trading you can bring your
tackle down into the Convention Hall from within the hotel without having to go outside or through the alley. If you have displays, you may bring them in through the alley docking area between 12:00 and 2:00pm on Thursday (those are hours for general set up for all exhibitors).
