Another con sadly come and gone!  But it was a fantastic one.  Thank you organizers, vendors and my fellow con goers, it was great to chat and see many of you, and I can't wait for next year already lol.

Thanks for Everything!  The Q and A about the Joe Con was Fantastic!  It is a real eye opener to find out all the hard work it takes to make this all happen!  The other Q & A's were great as well plus to see and speak with Ron Rudat was awesome!

All the Dealers had so many great deals, as usuall I left the Con out of money!  Now to go through all my loot!

A Special thanks to all the Canuckleheads I was able to meet, I had a great time talking to all of you!

As per usual, I had a lot of fun this year. This thing keeps getting better and better. I can't wait to crack open my copy of Blast Off and give 'er a watch.

Thanks to all involved for contributing to an excellent day.

Greatest Fathers Day Ever......

My kids woke me up with Breakfast in bed,  then when we were finished they said DADDY COME DOEN STAIRS AND PLAY WITH ALL THE NEW GI JOE STUFF WE GOT YESTERDAY!  can't ask for anything else!

Thanx to everyone who made this years Canadian GI Joe Convention happen.  My son and I dragged my wife and daughter out this year and it was fun for the whole family.  Thanx to all the dealers who had more than great deals.  I think we lined up at HJL more than a few times as we kept finding cool stuff we needed (wanted).  Its amazing how great all the Organizers/Dealers were with my kids!

A great job by all who set up and contributed to the con!

Good to meet a few new faces and see some familiar ones too!  Fine guests as well.  

Special thanks to Hasbro (for bringing Stalker), xhairs, Bandanov, and anyone else who let me hang with them!  And yeah - and Deadshot too!

Although I didn't find as many deals as last year, (can't be as lucky all the time!) I still had  a great time.Everybody from the staff was polite and helpful as usual. I'll be there next year for sure.

Thanks to  everyone that  came by  and  stopped at my tables, either to talk or to buy. ( My closet lost weight and is happy)  I had lots of  fun this year at the show.  The  Friday night was great  and thanks to Radio Guy I even got to sleep for a couple of hours.  Thanks to Realboss for  covering my tables  while I was away from them.  

Thanks to Pdaat  for the beer on Friday too.  

hope to see you all  next year

I would like to thanks the organizers, guests, all the my fellow collectors and dealers who I traded with conversated with, bought stuff off of and sold stuff to for   making the show great. I would also like to thank everyone for making the show a great one for a friend of mine who had never attended any convention or show before. He had a blast. The guests we had where great and I got to show them my art work and asked for pointers to improve which they gave. I just watched code name blast off and it was great hearing the history of the 1980's G I Joes from the people who made them. I also like how people bring their kids and get them into the hobby in the past it was dad buying themself stuff and telling the kids no. Now I see the kids getting stuff like old tanks and new ones to take home and play with.
