This just in from Mike M."I would like to invite any "local" collectors ( WV, OH, PA ) and even those not so local to attend JEDICON WV,a Star Wars convention located in a small rural town here in the Mountain state.
We have continued to have this show over the past few years and have grown to where we have to seek a larger venue.We have participation from local groups and some from as far away as VA and DC ( the DCSWCC to be precise ).
We are pleased to announce that the show will be on October 10th, 2009 and will be held at the Kruger Street Toy and Train Museum ( http://www.toyandtrain.com ) in Wheeling WV ! So,with that in mind if anyone here would like to attend, set-up a table or anything else for this year's show please let me know.
All proceeds from the silent auction,food sales and a portion of the admission costs will benefit CMN,Childrens Miracle Network.
We also are pleased to announce 3 special guests!
