It was a great class,  I believe I said right beside you Tammi.  Everyone will loove it.  We won't be taking the class as we won't be flying in until the Friday morning.  But we may pop in just to create some havoc for Michelle  bear_grin  bear_grin

OK, our app is in!  Hope they still had room   bear_original

Bear Guys, Daphne or anybody else going from Schaumburg to Hunt Valley... seriously, we can probably find room for quite a few bears in our car.  It's a van, it's big.  As long as they fit reasonably well (like we can still sort-of see out the windows), it's OK by us!  I'll just request that everyone have a back-up plan for their bears on the off chance that our car blows up the week before the show or something, and we have to fly, too.

Schaumburg is about 20 miles west of downtown Chicago. It's just farther west from O'Hare airport about 6 miles. Very easy to get to via the expressway or the back roads.
As you''re in Ontario, it may be just about the same: one is south west and the other south east.
Ask Steve & Shane!

Well Jane we have never driven to Schaumburg ( unlike Kelly  we really really really hate to drive)  :crackup:  :crackup: .  We always drive to buffalo and fly from there to Chicago as it is sooooo cheap to do that.  IT takes us about two hours to get to the airport  vs about a 10 hour one way drive to Chicago.  I think the last time we flew to Chicago we flew for about 140.00 per person.  We would spend that at least in gas to drive there, and parking was about 35.00 for a the few days we were gone.  Still cheaper than driving, we rented a car and drove from the airport, I think the car cost us about 40.00 for the two days we were there. 

Just my opinion, but I would fly from either Buffalo or Detroit which ever is closer for you.

big hugs

I'd just go and buy the tickets...  Tell him you are going to visit a sick aunt...

Seriously, I hope that you will be able to come, you would really enjoy yourself.

Yes, PLS PLS PLS!! 

I've made a special arrangement to change a family obligation, after not going to Sch since I retired from the show circuit after Sch Oct 2002.  I live only 10 miles away and just can not get there Spring or Fall.

So - if I've arranged it - for Michelle's class) we're sending A Good Solution to your way too!

We want as many TTers there as possible. It will publicize the group (I intend to print out some small blurbs and hand them out!) and take loads of pix.

Cool and mildly windy.  Not bad weather.  Compared to our current weather very nice.  I am looking forward to this show.  Now are we going to have a "formal" gathering of TTers?  Like a party Friday or Saturday evening at 7 and invite collectors to come join the fun or will we all just pile in the lobby at 7 and go to dinner somewhere.  Really, we all need to wear TT pins or T shirts.

The TB&F/Doll Reader reception is Friday, so maybe we should get together on Saturday evening?

Yes, it would have to be Saturday.

Ginger.... bring a jacket! Last October was my first time in Chicago... it's windy! Daytime isn't bad but the evenings are a bit brisk.... in my opinion anyway!

And we're as easily had 80°+, which definitely isn't Bear (show) weather as it keeps everyone out on the golf courses, running & exercising, putting the gardens to bed for the year. We like a nice cool misty to slightly drizzly weather for shows here. Makes everyone want to stay indoors with a cozy warm Hug, theirs or ours to add to theirs, but not enough to call Rain, as that might impact travel.
Watch the Weather Channel the week before and keep a few summer outfits out yet. I'll be sure to post it Mon through Wed.

Bobbie... that's the weather prayer we all have for shows no matter where they are!!! bear_original (Of course there's the added "NO SNOW!" prayer in the north as it get closer to winter!)

Can someone point me to the link where I pre-register for the Schaumberg show this year?

Over the spring, Sue Ann mentioned the show to me a few days before it started and I just showed up.

Jodi: I plan on going to Schaumberg (not selling). I am taking Michelle Lamb's class and another animal sculpting class in the afternoon. I also signed up to go to a reception in the evening. I would love to meet other TTer's there. I think some are in the classes.
