Buying, Selling, and Trading
Anyone who is interested in bringing props to sell or trade, go right ahead.
You may have assumed that already, but I'd like to encourage it if you want to.
For those who are limited in transportation because of what part of the great GTA you live in, anyone willing to offer carpooling and station pickups, that would be great. If anyone can swing it,
I'm sure it would be appreciated.
However, I assume some exhibitors may not have available space in their vehicles after they've loaded up all their show pieces.
**UPDATE** - May 26
- The Trafalgar room at the 'Days Hotel' has now been officially booked for the 'Toronto Prop Party'
- If anyone attending would like to volunteer any help whatsoever, that would be great.
- This event will only be as good as we all can make it. The location is booked, the date is set. Let's look forward to it. I am for sure.
- I want to thank everyone who has offered to help. It would be great if any one feels like bringing any portable flatscreen tvs. I'll be bringing my 23" tv, Xbox, PS3, DVD player.
If anyone else feels comfortable bring a portable tv, that would increase the number of 'entertainment stations' we could have. I have a dual NES & Genesis console that's brand new, I can hook up. So if anyone has any old games they want to bring, we could retro-it-up.
**UPDATE** - June 6, 2011
In an attempt to attract more people, the general admission price has been lowered to $15. Any additional guests you bring get in for $5 each!
An additional $5 discount will be granted to anyone who brings a 'prop' to donate for the raffle.
*1 discount per person*

I hope everyone can appreciate that there is a personal cost for me to organize this event and I'd like to make sure my efforts are covered.
Plus, it's more fair to those donating prizes that the event coodinator take into consideration the value of the items they have in the raffle.
- Keep this alive people.
