Really hope the BIG SHOW is a go this year! 
  Booked a room at Comfort Inn Gettysburg, would hate to cancel my reservation :angry-nono:

 

How many of you have booked?

Was thinking about it just last night.

Will have to give our favorite B&B a call soon too.

My reservations have been in since December. When the FDA approved the first vaccine I figured we were on our way to :romance-grouphug:

being one big happy family again.

So long as our wheels show up on time, it’ll be the Walmart parking lot on Wednesday evening, then to the fairgrounds Thursday morning!

With the PA governor lifting restrictions might be plausible?

Just wonder though, if the state has restrictions on the numbers and distancing will the club will have to submit a plan? Much like the ballparks and arenas. Might have to get an entry ticket? IDK 

Hope it is not to complicated. 

Has anyone talked to the Collectors Club to see how they may respond?

As slow as and unpredictable Pa. is who knows how much these things will change? :confusion-shrug:

Current State Restrictions

SOCIAL RESTRICTIONS
  • Gathering limits in place:
    • Indoor events: 15% of maximum occupancy, regardless of venue size and only if attendees and workers are able to comply with the 6-foot physical distancing requirement
    • Outdoor events: 20% of maximum occupancy, regardless of venue size and only if attendees and workers are able to comply with the 6-foot physical distancing requirement
  • Face coverings are required to be worn indoors and outdoors if you are away from your home

 

I'm about 3 1/2 out so figure I can drive over for the day and then back if there are no rooms, but I had found that to be not much of an issue in the past.

  I think with Covid still affecting people’s traveling plans it’ll be easy to score a hotel...even close to the dates of the show I bet there are plenty of vacancies.

I sent a message back on January 22 to Eric Johnson (board member). He read it, but has not responded.

My father offered to book the rooms a few days ago. Pretty sure he's on top of it so hopefully no cancellation is necessary.

I saw that post on FB too, but it's very vague. Who is the "fair board"?  "Keep your eye out for updates"

 

I think the first thing they need to do is update their website. It has not been updated since the show was canceled last year.

:soapbox:   The WHCC website hasn't been worth a darn since they took it over from @Mike'sHorseBarn a couple years back.

No need to miss the Friday night cruise, the Saturday morning ice cream social, or anything else that makes the Big Show so classic!  Like People!  Seas of REGAL RED!

Correction Dick. MikesRJ ran the site. And you are right, it has not been worth a hoot. There are a lot of folks who don't use Facebook for obvious reasons, but do check on websites for up to date info, if it's there.

Kevin, you've got your times mixed up. The ice cream social is Friday night, right after the board meeting, followed by the cruisin' to the oldies shortly there after.

Even though I only live 36 miles from the show, I have decided that I will not be camping on-site this year, and have booked reservations at a nice comfortable hotel.

@953 nut Yea that wasn't me that ran the site, but Ironically enough I do administrate 2 websites and would be happy to help them with keeping theirs up to date if they ever wanted someone else to take it over.

The group of people that administer and make decisions about what goes on at the fairgrounds. They oversee everything from renting the grounds out to maintenance of buildings. 

 

Dan and I will be staying in the roach motel.... :lol:
