    Can this thread, perhaps, be made a "sticky" for easier access?

    Sure, what you do is spread peanut butter, jelly, and honey on your computer screen--and then it becomes a sticky. Let me know how that works out for you.

    Or I can put my used gum on the screen.

    You got to save that in case you get a flat tire driving from Chicago to Minnesota. (Will says so!)

    So, what has everyone been attending thus far?

    What are you planning on trying to get to?

    With the new year upon us now, are there any updates to the calendar which ought to be added?

    I have noted a couple of cancellations (by leaving the event, but citing such cancellation in boldface.)

    I'd like to add this event, but I'm a little uncertain as to what the solid dates are. It appears to be April 20-22?

    I need to update a couple of things, when I get a chance. In the interim, there is this to be featured: the Milwaukee Ukulele Fest, October 20:


    The Chicago Uke Fest should be sometime in July.

    Are there others out there, also?

    Here is a sight thats AWESOME. The creator and web guy is a pretty cool dude as well.
    You can easily submit events. Search events in different ways; dates, type, regions.
    I consult this site when I am traveling to see what will be in the area I am going to.
    This site is just the best!!!!!!!!!

    Kidabra International

    January 28-31 - Oxnard, Ca - Midyear Meeting

    August 3-7, Williamsburg, VA - Kidabra Conference

    Groundhog Day Jugglers Festival

    February 6-8, Atlanta GA

    International Jugglers Association

    July 20-26, Quebec City, Canada

    Winter Carnival of Magic*

    March 5-7, Pigeon Forge, TN

    Mayberry Magic Festival

    September 25-27*, Mount Airy, NC

    * Pigeon Forge (and surrounding Gatlinburg) is a nice vacation destination. It's a definite tourist town with a complete list of attractions (Dinner Theaters, etc). It's a fun town to visit so you can double down and take a mini-vacation while at the convention. Pigeon Forge is (semi) local to me at about 4 hours and one of my favorite long weekend destinations.

    * Tentative date to coincide with a "Mayberry Days" festival that tributes the obvious Andy Griffith show. More information incoming, but all ready some top-notch keynote speakers scheduled.

    OMG do something ELSE in a place other than just safely hole oneself up in the confines of a convention hotel with friends who are just as odd and geeky as yourself? Banish the thought! Besides, that would take money spent out of the vendors' pockets. Why would you even suggest such a thing?!?!?!?!

    I know right? Absurd...

    I don't get the guys who spend 100% of their vacation time in the convention center, especially when visiting somewhere new. Budget can certainly play a role in prioritizing trips but there's also a lot to do cheap or free virtually anywhere you go. Most regional museums are around $5; same with transportation or specialty museums.

    Going back to Pigeon Forge as an example; outside of all of the expensive touristy stuff, they have the Smoky Mountains where you can basically spend forever without paying for anything but food and fuel. If you really want to be thrifty and still see a show; go set through one of those lousy timeshare things and get the free tickets - you can even make a game out of it to see how irritated you can make the aggressive sales people. Forehead veins and purple skin by your would be salesperson is a good score indicator.

    Even small town destinations have offerings. I currently live in 'Mayberry' - literally. No big dollar destinations here but you have a regional museum ($5), an Andy Griffith Museum ($5), Eng & Chang Bunker grave site and history (free), Snappy Lunch (cost of meal - cheap) & Mayberry Soda Fountain, Floyd's barbershop, Andy Griffith Playhouse, 2 Greenways, Squad car tours, a ton of vineyards, and more Andy Griffith references than you can imagine. That's not counting seasonal stuff and street festivals. Obviously 'Mayberry' has some nostalgia appeal, but most any town in the country is going to have something to offer other than tacky carpet, dated conference rooms, and 300 other nerds to look at. ;)

    Oh, I want to get my picture taken on the park bench seated next to the statue of Aunt Bea!

    No Aunt Bea statues, but we do have the TV Land dedication statue of 'Andy & Opie' just outside of the Andy Griffith Museum...
