AUGUST 2003 SHOW WILL BE HELD IN INDIANAPOLIS. PUT IN FOR YOUR VACATION NOW!

 

Special note about shows:
Many of us think that phone shows are easy to put together and we squabble about the registration fees. This year's show at the Marriot cost approximately $8000 to run which includes the hall rental fees and food. Hotel contracts with the hosts call for the exclusive rights to food and they charge quite a bit, such as the $27 per gallon for the morning coffee!
