Just finished filling the trunk with beer cans. Leaving early tomorrow morning for a 1,048 mile ride to Frankenmuth (with a 1-week stopover in Detroit for my mailman's convention) and should be there sometime on the 20th.
Bringing a bunch of 1935-36 Krueger Cream Ale dumpers, a big variety of new craft micro cans and other assorted cans.
Really psyched and looking forward to being there! -Billy

We are off to a great start. There must have been 30 people here already on Thursday and the show does not even start till Friday. Deals were being made so it pays to arrive early.

Bryan, Keith, Clayton, anyone else at the show, I need that beer boot for my noncompetitive display of CANvention items in 2020, in St Louis. Can someone buy it for me at $5.00 and I'll figure out how to get it back to Baltimore. Maryland guys are going to Omaha, so that could be the way home for it.
Thanks for thinking about me. If anything else CANvention related turns up, please let me know.

There was a couple times when it rained for a couple minutes. Otherwise, it was very nice.

Raining when I left the house this morning. Went through a couple downpours. Once past Flint, dry roads all the way. No outside vendors seen, so grabbed my walker and headed in. Good turnout given iffy weather, but it was inside the hall. Told John Fatura it might be time to start looking for bigger venue. Shows are getting bigger and better every year!

It was good to see a lot of the regulars. Have to congratulate the Mid-Michigan and Rusty Bunch Chapters for another outstanding effort and job well done. This is one of several I try not to miss.

In keeping with my collecting niche, variety, I was able to ad these cans.

Edski, Don't remember seeing you there? If you want a bigger Venue I think Heritage Park would be big enough to hold the crowd. I only picked up 1 can. A nice clean NORTH STAR flat top from Detroit Michigan. Picked up a Goebel Beer Box & 1 pre prohibition copper Tivoli drinking mug. Pics below. LEON.
