Default St.Louis Slot Car Show - Going???

Anyone going to the slot car show in St. Louis this coming weekend? I'm looking at bringing a large 4 lane routed track with computer and some very rare cars to sell from my collection and hate to drag all of it out if the show isn't going to have a lot of people in attendence. Would like to get an idea how many are going to be attending? Anyone interested in previewing the track or some of the cars, send me an email of post here. Thanks & Hope to see lots of people at the show?

Hello,

What is the best way to find out where and when these shows are put on? I am just getting started with my 5 yr. old son and we live in Cincinnati. St. Louis is a little far for me to justify at the moment, hope you have a good show!

Eric

I'm going to be there and I'm always looking for interesting 1/32 stuff. I would love to see a preview. The show usually gets a good turnout. 50s

I'm Wes and have been going to the St. Louis show ever since it first started occuring. That is when I haven't been overseas as part of military duties or as part of my jobs helping the military after having retired. I used to bring some pretty unique and rare stuff to the shows all the time and will have some again at this show. Everyone who attends should stop by and say hello. I would enjoy meeting each of you. See you at the show !!!

Eric,

As for finding out when and where all the shows are, I just google slot car shows and find someone with a listing for them. Then of course I contact them to make sure the dates are correct and the show is still happening. Next one after St. Louis will be in Chicago the weekend of the 21st. There was and is one twice a year in Ohio as well as one in PA which would be a little farther away. Plenty on the east coast as well but only the one in Ohio that I'm aware of. It's put on by Brad Bennett and is located in Richfield, OH. That one happened last month. If you want the website to find the listings, send me an email directly as I don't want to pot it here as it may violate the forum's rules. Hope this helps. Wes

Have had a couple contacts by interested parties and if a deal is worked out, I won't bring it to the show. Unless of course they are on the way and I need to drop it off, then I may bring it for people to race on. Send me an email and I'll attach you a photo of the track. Pictures just barely exceed the max allowed to post on here. Sorry about that.
