    • Coin Community
We have two adjacent corner booths, 1617 and 1716. August 13th through the 17th.

http://www.coincommunity.com/pdf/2013ChicagoFloorMap.pdf

Every single kid that comes to the booth for the entire show gets a goodie bag of free coins and other goodies.
We have a cool dice game that they win other things. (Everyone wins an additional something)

Some images from the FUN (Florida United Numismatists) show in Orlando in January.







One lucky kid may win this...




An 1883 O MS63 Deep Mirror Prooflike Morgan Dollar. You can read the newspaper in this coin!
If some lucky kid rolls a 2 or a 12 twice in a row, they get it.
No winners at the last show even though the odds were in favor of a winner.


If you're in the area, come on out and bring the kids for some free stuff!

How VERY Exciting for you, Bobby!

Fred, would've loved this.
I'll be sure to get the news out as best I can...Twittering!
Being that I'm in FL, it'll be hard to get there but wish I could.
Those kids will have a great time and come away with goodies to inspire them.

So you're not only going to teach him to gamble, you're going to teach him to cheat at gambling!  :0771

Donna how far are you from Orlando? We will be there again in January.

45 minutes.
We go often to Orlando...Disney, shopping, family north of Orlando, restaurants.

Suze is in the area, along with toobusyforswapmeets, Jeri and a few more are in the area, too.

I work in Orlando - it looks like the FUN convention is at the Orange County Civic Center. I live/work at the opposite end of town, but if I'm in town that weekend, I would like to get by there and meet up.  :h0161 I don't get off work until 5pm and no way on earth would I try to get thru Orlando traffic to get there by 6:30 when it closes, so the weekend it is, lol. Donna, OTOH, would benefit being from the Lakeland end coming into Orlando.
(Did I happen to mention how much I *hate* Orlando rush-hour traffic?!?  :whip LOL)

My BIGGEST gripe with Orlando traffic is that you can be stopped dead in traffic for 45 minutes to an hour and you never find out why? why? why? was I sitting in that traffic so long.

Once sat in stand still traffic for 3 hours coming back from Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville restaurant...never knew why....no rhyme, no reason, no accidents, no traffic alert.

I KNOW, I KNOW, I KNOW!!! ??? I-4 makes me crazy and I am now an official I-4 hostage.  :'( You're right - you can be moving along and suddenly, traffic is at a standstill. You figure,  :053 there must be a wreck ahead... You start making plans for a re-route from the next exit, if you can ever get moving again. You sit there a bit and finally start going. And then traffic gets up to speed and you find NOTHING to explain what just happened. However, you never know - they will also pile up for any reason - cop pulled someone over, wreck off the side of the road, you name it. Thank the good Lord I don't have to go all the way into downtown. But it still sucks, as far as I do have to go. Anywhere from 30 min to 1.5 hours to go the last 10 miles to my exit.

OK now that I have totally derailed the thread, I will [/rant] and  :back2topic

Wish I could - but please post around the time you come back to Orlando in Jan. and I will try to get by there and check it out (assuming I'm in town). Never been to a FUN show. I'd probably learn something!

Bump, Bump, Bump!

Wish I was able to go!
My son loves Chicago...it's in his top 3 cities he's visited over the past years traveling the US.
My sisterinlaw and brotherinlaw are there at a convention this week and she says that Chicago is one of her very favorite cities, too!

Have FUN!!!!

We're leaving several days early and spending two nights at a resort on Lake Erie. We're doing a sunset cruise on Saturday night. Should be fun!

Wishing you a successful show!

I will keep Orlando in mind, we are a few hours southwest. I'm sure my son would enjoy it.
