    Once again it's time for the annuel Parts night. This was started 7 years ago with Battlestarbase, myself and a few others. It grew in size and last year Gen1Fan and I had 40 people in our hotelroom. So grab your stuff, grab your drink of choice, and come to the fun.

    Hotel room will be posted on the bulletin board. It will start on Thursday and go throughout the con.

    This year, let's try not to get security called on us. hehe

    Hope to see everyone there

    Yeah, last year was spread into 2 hotels. We will be in the main hotel with the convention. Also before the question is asked, yes you can bring stuff just to sell. The only rule is that the parts party cannot be open when the dealer room is open.

    As Megamus stated we will be hosting the parts this year, I will be getting in on wendesday night and hope to call megamus before he leaves on the trip so he can post the floor and room on this tread. If not look for fliers on the boards, and in the lobby. I will have junker parts bots, Complete g1 toys, beast wars, beast machine, Almost complete bots. I will also have my fort max, nice white body, with both ramps, radio dish, and all of the body guns minus the hip cannons. Was hopping to complete it but will sell it for what I have in it.


    Well have beer for sale in the room as well. If you run low or just forget to buy .

    You can't sell beer without a license. Major offense.

    However, you can ask people who drink your beer (who are of age, and yes, you should check otherwise you get slapped with selling beer without a license AND contributing to minors) that, if possible, they pay you back for the beer they drink.

    That, or charge a "cover" to be in the Parts Party where drinks are free. Must be 21 years of age to drink however.

    I have a suite reserved at the Biltmore (the second hotel sold out) that will also be hosting a parts party this year. I'm planing on having games and food as well as selling/trading parts and toys.

    It'll be fun to have a parts party in each of the Hotels. This way people can shift from hotel to hotel looking for what they need like a big scavenger hunt. (the activity, not a scavenger toy/part that is unless you're looking for one.)

    Now how are we going to do this, We have 4 hotels and parts partys in each? Break the times up for each hotel ? well if Magnus and Myself leave our room we will leave a note on the door be back around ?? time. Or I will leave my cell number and you can call me and ask when we will be back.

    Wouldn't you also have to consider how far each other hotel is from the main hotel a.k.a. the Westin?

    I know the Biltmore is across the street, but what of the other 2 hotels? Are they in walking distance or would one have to hail a cab

    I think you are going to spend far more time packing up, setting up and traveling if you bounce between locations.

    Set up in one place and let the customers come to you!
