In all honesty, the previous show's attendance was less than hoped for, although Basilios is trying to learn from the experience. For the March show, there wasn't as much advance promotion as there should have been. Also, the previous show was held just two days after a snow storm. For this show, Basilios is getting an earlier start on the publicity, and it's being held in early November, before the snow season.

The EWR show that used to take place the second Saturday in September was cancelled, although another promoter is now advertising an EWR show. The organizers of the previous EWR shows are not promoting this one.

However, Bill Gawchik has announced that he's doing an EWR show in September 2005.

The LGA show is being promoted by Basilios Pipinos. He did a show in March at LGA which suffered because of a lack of lead time for promotion. Promotional outreach for the November show has already started, so we're hoping for a much larger turnout.

I went to the EWR show in 93 and 94. Got a ramp tour. In Spring 95, I moved back to Florida.

I'm just curious, were they giving ramp tours through 2001, the last being a mere 3 days before 9/11? I'm guessing not after 9/11.

How about at this LGA show?

I'm glad you got to go on one of our EWR ramp tours. These stopped a few years ago when the high-powered person who made them happen retired.

Unfortunately, after 9/11, it does not look as if we'll be able to offer ramp tours in the future.

I hope you can make it to the LGA show anyway.
