Wow, I wish I could! It's 10 for me so not this time. Love the auction items! I'm sure I would need a lot of money for that though....

Omgosh, certain financial ruin for me! Nope, not going, kids need college. Heck, they need food.

Now, why did you have to point this out to me? Whether you buy or not, it looks like a really fun adventure.

I would love to. That would surely convince everyone that knows me that I have completely lost it. There is already much talk.

I wish I could, but between buying a house this past spring when I had absolutely no intention of doing so (and trying to get the condo ready to be sold), plus an upcoming cruise in December, my leave for the year is either spent or accounted for :D

I really REALLY wish I could go, tho. Maybe I'll save some pennies for the next time they hold it in the UK.

The conventions really are fun and if you can go you should! Your biggest take away will be how many must-have machines are out there that you didn't even know about!! We can't go this year because we already have plane tickets for another trip we planned months ago. Really stinks too 'cause because work hasn't allowed us to travel like we used to and then to have two wanna make trips the same week...pooh!

In addition to the usual goodies, they are going to have TWO complete collections for sale! Should be some great machines there!
