War Memorial Show

Post by BIG JOE » Sat Jan 14, 2017 8:16 am

Anyone receive this email yesterday?


Ft Lauderdale Armory Canceled
What Lana and I worked so hard to establish that paid our bills and provided many others opportunities has been ended over night. The government did testing of the Ft Lauderdale armory among armories through out the country and found dangerous levels of lead, so just like that our gun show is gone. We need a new building, if you know of anyone in the broward area who can help please let us know.

It's the Russians! [smilie=011.gif]

Seriously, though...post the header from the e-mail you received. That should determine if it's legit or not.

It's bogus I was just there. I'm not sure if it's a joke " Too Much Lead " or something else. Thanks' Mike

GunShowTeam.com <support@gunshowteam.com> <-------- Not an e-mail header.

Nonetheless, your title and the show date alludes to the Ft. Laud War Memorial Show. The website (gunshowteam.com) & e-mail are regarding the Ft. Lauderdale Armory Show.

I know it was an innocent mistake on your part, but seriously....

I see my mistake. I was planning on going all week. I wanted to see what was happening and prices before Friday 01/20/2017. Oh well got home around noon and then the wife left until 4:30 so that's a good day with just that. I just have to slow down and read! Thanks' guy's.

All Armory gun shows are cancelled until they remove the lead according to Tiffani of "The Gun Show Team". But yet our reserve soldiers will still be stationed there. GARY

Not a fan of these shows, but still this is a crap break. I assume they have some business interruption insurance, but even that doesn't cover lost momentum.

No. THE Ft. Lauderdale Gun Show is the one at the War Memorial. The "other" show is, or was the one at the Armory. As for being hot, many vendors were wearing sweaters, & jackets inside it was so cold. Looking forward to Miami in 5 days. GARY

Gary I agree in the abstract the War Memorial is definitely the main show.

As to the temperature, I found there were spots where the A/C was blowing that were arctic but outside of those small zones I was pitching a flop sweat. But of course, I would live in a refrigerator if I could as I like it frigid.

I hear you. Roxy at Vito's tables was wearing a jacket, & I watched her shiver all weekend. I told her it was better than sweating. Even Ira was going to ask them to turn up the heat. I said are you crazy, as tear down is in 10 minutes, & we need it as cool as possible then. I guess I was lucky as I worked in the comfort zone. GARY
