Is there such an event? If not, why not!

A few of us here on the nation have made contact and are talking about a local gathering. An event to show our boxes, talk about them on every level and all that relates. I've seen related to this going on around or near my area, if there is I'd like information please.

It wouldn't take much to get it started, however if it turned into something big, I'm sure there's enough talent to step up to the plate and organize an event near St. Louis, at a local Deli, club or coffee house needing a few hour of interesting excitement.

If you have ideas or interest, post them here and lets see what develops.

I live in/near Downtown STL. I am pinched for time at the moment, but would like to see what happens with this.

Great Colin,

Help keep this alive by giving feedback and adding any ideas. There are most likely a few places that will sponsor us if with present it correctly and maybe get our foot in the door on a small scaled venue. I was thinking way ahead for sometime when the weather is more accommodating, June-July?

cool, I will keep an ear out, and talk to people when I can.

I've contacted a couple others here on the nation haven't heard back yet. This only takes one with an idea or thought to get things started let's keep going.

How goes it with the festival planning, Gary? Do you have a place, date and time yet?

There is a route 66 festival here in Edwardsville IL. in June. They have art&craft shows, a stage with PA system and music venue. It draws a big crowd. Just another idea thrown in.

a st. louis fest sounds great idea

Awesome Nemo, keep posted and feel free to add your own input.

Heavy Anchor might be down for this. Off Broadway too.

Thanks for the feed back Craig, we will be contacting most of our leads this weekend coming up, to see if any of them would like to sponsor us.

I'm now in the Springfield MO area and would be happy to roll up I44... pls keep this alive.... need more local stuff going on in Missouri and surrounding area...

Most definitely will follow through with this plan and see where it goes. This started off with gary herget wanting a get together and my responce was the more is MO better. I think casual get together s is a great idea too, we certainly need a Cigar Box Festival out our way at the gateway.
