I always ALWAYS want to go to the Prop Parties and Comic Cons and really never have the money or the time. So, I got some advice from a few different people, asked a few Moderators here and on other boards for some advice and thought I would see if there is any interest in throwing a Prop Party in Memphis TN in January of 2009?
It is inexpensive to fly in and out of Memphis, there are a TON of inexpensive hotels, and I have family, friends, and business associates in Memphis and am there at least once a month.
Who would like to come to Memphis on the weekend of January 18th, if we host it in Memphis TN. It would not just be for Prop collectors, but any of your friends/family who want to get together and talk about comic books, movies, and of course, movie props, collectibles, and replicas!!
I am as we speak trying to get a showing of a movie, something - either a Star Wars, Dark Knight, Raiders, something - and thought we could all just have a GREAT time eating Southern BBQ, hanging out, and just in general praying that the world doesn't end before we get Star Wars Episode 7: Starring Mark Hammil as and older, wiser Luke Skywalker.
[COLOR="Red"]What are your thoughts about a Memphis TN prop party in January 2009?[/COLOR] Who would come, and what suggestions do you have? What price range do you want for the hotel rooms? Do you want to spend a little bit more and stay somewhere nice, or do you all prefer something simple like a Holiday Inn?
Let me know the in's and out's and I will start calling around and making reservations.
Good ideas are greatly appreciated!!!!!
