Brother and Sister Vents..

I want to invite all of you to come to the Vent Haven International Ventriloquists' ConVENTion . It's next week, July 14-17, in Ft. Mitchell, KY (just across the river from Cincinnati, OH) and you get a chance to see some top talent, both performing ane lecturing, and get to see the fabulous Vent Haven Museum, the largest and oldest vent museum in the world. Some of the people who post here will be in attendance, including Neale Bacon, Tom Crowl, and myself. Jeff Dunham also comes every year, as he is a product of the ConVENTion. Jeff started out there in our Junior Contests decades ago..and has risen to the top of the adult vent market.

You can register by PayPal or pay at the door..it doesn't matter, as long as you are there.

Hate to reply to myself here...the posting should be "Vent Haven ConVENTion 2101" not "20101" I try to look ahead but that was ridiculous! Smile Sorry for my bad typing..

Yes, indeed, I am leaving tomorrow for a round about way there. No ticket yet, but will pay at the door. It has been about 7 years since last going and sorely missed it. I look forward to seeing past acquaintances. Don't want to say "old friends".

See ya there,

Dr. Solar..glad you'll be joining us. It's always a fun time at the ConVENTion!

Dave..I'll see you at KidAbra and I still want to talk to you and Kimmo about the 2011. It would have been this year but we had a few things come up and I wasn't able to arrange it.

See you both soon!

Hey Mark,
Looking forward to seeing all the folks there. I have the handout notes all set of Junior Vent U. Liz suggested 24 sets as she says there are around 20 kids usually but some others may want the script writing notes too.

Glad to be part of the family.

Mark, "Vent Haven ConVENTion 2101"???

That seems pretty forward thinking to me. I'm not sure I will still be around then. Smile

Sorry guys, about my lousy typing. NONE of us will be here in 20101! Glad you're part of the family, Neale. You'll like working with Liz and with Lynn Trefzger-Joy.

Scott, we'd love to have you come some day to Vent Haven. It's a great time!

As long as we make it after December 2012, our next (x10) generation will have the hope to be at the conVENTion 20101. Smile

Too bad I'm located in Singapore, but I do plan to go in the near future, maybe before 2012 ends.

I plan to be there one year - it's a bit close to Kidabra to do both in the same year. Hope you all have a great time.

Hi Kimmo,,,I mendioned to Dave that I want to talk to both of you about Vent Haven conVENTion 2011. I wanted to bring you both over this year, but we had a few difficulties (we ended up spending a bunch of money on a new sound system..) so I had to put it off. I haven't forgotten. Let's talk at Kidabra!

Joseph, we'd love to have you attend the ConVENTion in 2012. I know it's not cheap to travel from Sinapore, but well worht the trip!

If you can't make it to the Vent Haven ConVENTion this will hopefully make you feel like you are there.

Yep, Mark, talk to you at KIDabra.

I look forward to KIDabra the more I go. I think it's the whole deal, the convention, the friends Sally and I have made and the amazing Pigeon Forge.

See you there,

Dave

The convention starts tomorrow, but there are already quite a few vents at the Drawbridge. I got in around 5:00 and hooked up with Ken Groves, Dan Horn, Mark and Jodie Wade, Joe Lefler and his wife, and Bob Issacson. (Sorry if my spelling is off on any of the names!) We ran into Pete Michaels, Mark James, Allo and a slew of other vents during dinner.

After dinner, Ian Varella and I teamed up for a drink. Later I hung with Steve P., Bob Abdou, Neale Bacon and others in the lobby. Finally got to meet Dan Willinger in person too.

Sounded like Dan's initial broadcast went well, so if you aren't coming, check them out. We'll try to keep you updated here as well.

Yesterday was exremely busy. I am working with Ken Groves, Mark Truman and Sue Johnson on the sound this year. Ken, Mark & I had to set the showroom in the morning. The sound system is brand new, just out of the box and it took longer than expected to get everything tuned and equalized to the room. The results are incredible though - it sounds great.

I opened the show last night, followed by David Crone, who did a very cool bit with Eugene playing Flight of the Bumblebee on Kazoo. Ken Groves filled in for Steve Axtell, who couldn't make it here due to health problems. (Hope you are doing better Steve!) Ken killed, as always. He is so smooth and relaxed with incredible skills.

Following the show, Ken moderated a round table discussing how Vents can prepare for the future. The panel included Sylvia Fletcher, Mark Wade, and Brad Cummings, who had literally just arrived. The topics were varied and the questions kept coming/ At 10:00 pm they had to shut it down since they were already 15 minutes over schedule.

The dealer rooms were open - and WOW! Lots of dealers and GREAT figures. So much to see and play with. I hadn't eaten since lunch, so Ed Thomas, David Crone, Ken Groves, Brad Cummings and I had a late dinner in the restaurant. Service is much better and the food is delicious this year thanks to a management change.

This morning I've got to run and turn things on for Dan Horn's lecture. It will be a full day!
