This is going to be great. I am going to register and attend. I KNOW I'll learn something from being there. Well worth the price.

I'm excited about it! Great lineup of speakers and I can't wait to hear from the greatest in the business.

I always feel like a little boy when I'm around people I admire. The first morning of the Sideshow gathering I walked past James Taylor at breakfast and was so giddy I just walked past him smiling like a goon. Same way I walked past Todd the whole weekend.... I'm a dork. I clam up and don't know how to act. But, I'll be there to take notes and learn.

I'm sorry, but am I the only sane one here? $125 to go hear a bunch of old white guys regale how great the old days were, how much money they made, and how crappy todays performers are? I got to get that treatment for free years ago when I actually WORKED for WOW. Plus I can get that on a daily basis RIGHT HERE by simply posting my opinions about pretty much anything. I get it, you guys have forgotten more than I will ever know.... okay! You know what? I'm not sorry.... as a matter of fact, this looks like a modern day blow off.... except instead of a dime, you fork out $125. There are scams, and then there are scams. It's a modern day con, same premise, same money, just a wider base to pick from seeing how you now have access to global advertising and communications.

Nipps, your right, its a whole lot cheaper to go to The Gathering and Hear James Taylor tell the Old Guys stories as if he was there while watching today's Crappy Performers perform in person...and to think I was actually going to Lecture on Sideshow Internet etiquette...Oh well, I am going to attend, and I am sure I am going to learn from someone there how to make the BCS and myself a better Sideshow operator, and yes it may happen just by cutting up Jackpots with the attendees and or the actusl lecturers...either way 125 bones is Peanuts...for what is offered...

There is always more to learn. The day I think I know it all I'll feel like I'm 14 again. It just dawned on me. My favorite people here are friends on Facebook. What am I doing here?

Yup, and yup. $125 is peanuts? Not when you have a mortgage, car payments, unemployed wife and a 2 year old child. Oh yeah, I can REAALLY see how paying that much for THIS event can be justified. Unless Rasmus Nielsen is there....

Look, I'm not poo-pooing this thing, I'm simply posting my opinion on it. If my posts appear "angry" or "flaming", relax.... I am smiling the whole time. I think Jim can relate, yes?

Todd, will you be speaking at the seminar?
$125 IS peanuts. It is three days Jan 1st thru Feb 2 with the first day devoted to speeches and Q&A, the second day sideshow acts, and the 3rd day field trips to the Gibtown Museum and then the Tampa Fair, where Ward & Chris will demonstrate why and how their 10-in-one works.
Of course, this type of knowledge is only valuable to those who have some use for it.

Not True! This type of seminar allows even the Casual Sideshow Enthusiast into the Backdoor of the Modern Day Sideshow...a lot can be learned, and a lot can be just simply ...enjoyed...

Hell, I think Wayne (Ballycast) should attend if for no other reason then to crash in Wards Bunkhouse for a night...

Before your application to become a Sideshow Operator can be approved, all the information that you've submitted must be checked to make certain you've lied.

I am wondering if part of that third day of finding out how a sideshow works involves something called "chinese"?
