The dog will have 2 tables at the end of the first isle stop by and say HI...
An interesting point about this show is most dealers stay at the same Inn and open their doors the night before for a free Show The DOG has more than once sold more stuff the night before than at the actual show AMAZING...
The INN is the Comfort Inn, 7813 Indianapolis Blvd, Hammond IN 1 219 845 4678 Super Breakfast is free at 6am tell them you are with the slot car show for a special rate...
This has always been the DOG's favorite show for the shear size over 100 tables of all scales of Slot Cars and TONAGE of parts. this area is just across the Indiana border and a very safe area with more food offerings than you need for a special treat visit The Blue Top Drive In 50's style Drive In with huge Burgers and an order of Fries will feed 4.
Hot Rods regularly in the parking lot and hundreds of license plates hanging everywhere, a must see, and eat if you come.
The Midwest Slot Car Show was another success over 110 tables full of COOL slot car stuff. The Dog enjoyed meeting Sargent Matis (vdubbin) and family we hung out at the hotel slot car open house the night before and at the show the next day.....
The fall show is November 11 this year they usually stay with in a week or so but it's always on Sunday so the date changes i will post a reminder in the fall some tine
10 November is the Marine Corps birthday and Ball so I definitely won’t be making it on Saturday evening. Hopefully I won’t overindulge, uh, too much and be able to roll out of my rack on the 11th ( Veterans Day!!) and head up. Is it still by chance held in Matteson?
It's just across the IN border off I-80 very easy to find, stop by the Kdog Racing booth if you can make it we have a very cool group of guys in that area of the show including Graphs by Gary for decals, Bodys by Doug for cool resin bodys, Not sure if Sargent Mathis is coming but he was there this Spring with amazing paint jobs of a bunch of cars. The show is open at 10am till 3pm
I doubt if I’ll be able to make it. With having a Veteran’s Say Memorial service to participate in and not being able to leave here till at least Noon, it is a 2 hour drive and being I am in Illinois and an hour behind, I wouldn’t get there till closing time. I’ve always wondered why these shows were not geld on Saturdays!
OK TIME FOR THE BIG ONE! THE CHICAGO MIDWEST SLOT CAR SHOW!
