While the 2015 F.U.N. Show is still fresh in our thoughts, what needs to change for the next F.U.N. Show?
What needs to be added?
What needs to be deleted?

I think the 2015 F.U.N. Show went very well (my observation only).

At the very end, we ran out of the loops I brought. I just need to order and bring more loops next time. (They are already on my shopping list.)

I believe there are already plans to make dice rolling easier and less likely to "mis"-roll.

We had a blast. There were more kids than ever! I've already started looking for prizes for next year, we really got wiped out. We gave away thousands of random coins, about 150 proof sets (we're completely out now), about 60 certified coins (we're down to less than ten), and three Morgans and Peace dollar. Also many miscellaneous folders, a ton of loupes, and a bunch of other stuff I'm sure I'm not remembering....

I'm also starting to shop for the next show.
I'll be bringing some more coins, proof sets, and I'll see if we can build that dice roller ;-)

Move it to Georgia, where it can then be the G.U.N. Show.

I think y'all should make a thread and post everyone that stops by the booth like an online roll I guess.

Ha! This made me chuckle I'm sure a bunch of gun enthusiasts would show up & be confused to see coins everywhere.

Well, Dawn and I are thinking about it too. It was our first time meeting everyone from CCF there and it looks like you guys did a great job to us. It's really hard to come up with something.

We know we would like to help out.

We need to do some researching about hotel rooms and such as soon as we can.

Well keep thinking and see what we can suggest.

Let me know your feedback on those "medium" Canadian prizes I sent down, I can probably rustle up more for next year...

If it wasn't so far away, I really would like to go at least once...it could be moved to Ft Worth next year...it could still be FUN.

I hope to see you in Tampa next year. Oh, one warning about Tampa. There is no place to buy a decent breakfast! Every time the national sports media comes here they complain about it.

When I read this an image came to mind:


Any CCF members have a metal shop?
I assume it can be made YN friendly.

I don't know how you would go about doing this, but dealers need to be there for the whole show. There were a number who had packed up by Friday night, and probably a third had left by mid-Saturday. Maybe you could group the early-departures in a particular section, so at least visitors know to hit them first.

GregAlex,

that decision was made by the F.U.N. club, not CCF. I don't know if that will be the on going procedure, or if it will change. I would hope dealers are at least required to stay all of Saturday.

If they left before Saturday at three they are supposed to be put in the back of the floor if they come back the following year. I did see Cindy walking around Saturday afternoon looking.
