This will be about the eighteenth year that we have put on this display at WAC. Always lots of fun, even if it rains. We've never been rained out but we have been rained on, some. As in the past, we will have some money to help pay fuel expenses for getting vehicles to the show. Can't guarantee how much, but usually we can take the bite out of transportation. We do ask that if you're bringing something big and heavy from a long way off, contact me first about fuel costs. Obviously, we don't want to have to fork out dough for someone bringing a Sherman tank here from Florida. Just keep it reasonable. Love to see a Sherman, though...

So bring whatever you have and join the fun. Anyone bringing a display vehicle gets into the gun show free and are encouraged to go in and look around for hot deals. In terms of firearms, it's a private club function, not on public property, and club policy is that only club members can bring, buy, or sell firearms. It's ok to bring demilled or other nonfunctional firearms to the display. You can join WAC on the spot, too. Anyone joining will have a criminal background check done online, right there. All functional firearms will be unloaded and zip-tied during the show. Club policy.

We usually have about 20 vehicles of all types. I encourage everyone to bring a sign board or other info to basically describe your vehicle to the public. Typically, we have several thousand people attend this show. We are set up between the entrance gate and the gun show exhibit hall, so literally everyone will walk through our display. I'll be passing out forms for fuel reimbursement during the show.

Please arrive early enough to be parked in place before the show opens at 9am. WAC is kind enough to provide fuel help and we should return the favor by being on time. It's also a safety issue, as we will be smack dab in the middle of a flowing crowd and they don't want squished people staining the pavement. :-0

We usually stay until the gun show winds down, about 2pm or so. There will be an area to park towing vehicles, for anyone who brings their vehicle on a trailer.

Questions?

My situation is still in doubt for Saturday. I am running for office and need to be political that day. Ed probably around 0700 to 0830 you should be okay.

Yo, Ed!
0:dark-30! That's 6am in civvy-talk. Drive in at the Orange gate, on the back side of the Fairgrounds. That's the west side. We will be assembling in the usual area, right inside the Blue pedestrian gate.
WAC security guards will be watching for the mil vehicles to arrive and we get in free. See you there.

UPDATE! The Orange entrance gate on the west side is not open until 0730. Weather looks to be fantastic. Blue sky on days before and after the show, so even if they are off, we're still good. See y'all there.
