There's a Raleigh show the Saturday of Easter weekend every year that seems to do well. Maybe you could try try a 2 day show, Fri & Sat ?

That's what I suggested to Kyle BTW. He already had his Frisco location scheduled for Saturday since he does the 3rd Saturday of each month there. Many times he can get the room the day before and if so, then the double is worth doing.

Many people are off that Friday so a Friday Afternoon-Evening/Saturday combo is not a bad idea for that weekend at his normal location.

As I mentioned, if I were to do a big April show I'd do the first weekend or the last weekend of the month because the 2nd weekend is too close to tax time and we've now discussed for this year Easter.

The biggest issue for Easter is that it's a family day (or weekend) and there are many people who attend church 1-2 days a year of which Easter is one of them. It's a small unofficial sample size but on my street there were at least 3 families who got together for Easter day or Easter weekend. Finding my normal parking space on Saturday night in front of my house was very difficult.

Will the serious collectors come, of course, but you won't see as many casual people, especially on Sunday.

I also meant to add my New Jersey Promoter Friend, Gary Sipos, who runs shows on the 1st, 3rd and 5th (when there is a 5th) Sunday in New Jersey near where I grew up, will not run a show at his location on Easter Sunday. His show is a Sunday only show.

And remember as a local DFW promoter, a well promoted big show drawing new people INTO the hobby or returning thereof can only do me good, so I do have a vested (albeit not financially) interest in Kyle and Leon having a good show. Drafting off a big show is only a positive for me.


Look for our show listings in the Net 54 Calendar section

I think when the show is said and done it will be a 3 day show. Of course we want the most people possible to attend so the Easter weekend might not be the best for that. We are still talking.
Another thing is the venue itself. We are looking at a location in Lewisville that is close to I35. It is not as spiffy as the Frisco location we are looking at but is 5 figures less expensive. So that is another thing we are discussing. We don't want to bring people to less than optimal digs for the show but we want to keep costs down too. I think it will be fun when it gets off the ground. This neck of the woods needs a larger show...

Leon, I think it is a terrific idea. You don't see too many three-day shows west of the Mississippi. I'd love to make it out there for one. Best of luck!

Rich, I agree that this show can only help yours. Case in point, the three-day shows in Rosemont, IL, help my show in Milwaukee, which is about an hour and a half away. I'm able to pass out hundreds of fliers for my show and meet and talk with folks to inform them in person about my show.

I also invite any show promoter to leave fliers at my show. By working together, we can assure success for everybody. In this digital age, it is tough to get collectors to leave their computer screens and come out to a show. I, for one, prefer a show to buying and selling online. It is so much more enjoyable for me to actually see cards in person and to chat with people who have the same interests that I have.

Id be game for a show in Texas and would grab a few buddies to go as well. Are you looking into getting PSA there by chance?

Make it happen. I am tired of driving to other cities for major shows.

I would be interested in doing the show if it fits my schedule. I'm sure if you do three I would be available for one at least.
