I haven’t talked with anyone in the know about this one this year. I know Chris Jensen was planning on coming up, and according to his website he still is.

I know the majority of the folks on hear are from the South, however is anyone planning on coming up for the Milwaukee TOR?

The Milwaukee TOR was today and it didn’t disappoint. A lot of great items and a lot of great collectors, and a great time had by me.

I’m not a big time dealer or collector so I’m not going to drop any big names of who was there. (mainly because I can’t remember – because I don’t care…) However it was nice to chat with Chris Jensen, he’s looking forward to the South Carolina TOR and is offering to have people picked up from the airport in a limo if they fly in!

I didn’t find the one patch I was hoping to find, my only real “need” (yes it is a need, not a want), however I have a couple of leads to followup on and a few more people are keeping their eyes open for me. I did pick up some random camp patches I wanted to add to my collection, and liquidated a few section conclave patches from over the years.

Things that stood out:
– People were seeking out trades! This seems to be rare at TORs, however I traded with a bunch of people and heard other folks say “I’m willing to trade too!”
– The Heritage Society Museum Tours never disappoint.
– Brats and Hot Dogs loaded with sauerkraut!!!
– An overall friendly atmosphere with great foot traffic throughout the day.
– A wide variety of collectors. There were the national folks, regional folks, and local folks… all of which seemed to be able to find something that interested them.

A lot of folks were talking up the Madison TOR in March or April (I didn’t pick up a flier since I will be out of the country…)

Overall great time, you should have been there!
