What a great evening that was! Hard to believe that the Second Chance Saloon restaurant/bar allowed us to have all the tables in a dining room to ourselves to set up toys, sort through action figures and accessories, and walk all over the place as if we were in our own home.
The food was tasty, and the friendly server was there when we needed her, but otherwise just stayed out of our way, and let us enjoy our hobby for the 3 or 4 hours that we were there.
What really was unique about this G.I. Joe gathering compared to others Iíve been at is that one third of everyone participating was a child. How special is that to see boys playing with G.I. Joe again! Baseball, football, basketball, fishing, bicycling Ė all things that are still around today because parents shared it with their kids. It never had to be rebooted or re-invented, because it is a part of the American tradition. Iím glad to see that G.I. Joe is no different.
Names drawn out of a hat for free door prizes: neat! Kids Joe trivia contests and prizes for every child: awesome! Hours of discussion and trading: cool!
Weíre just a small crowd of Ďordinary Joesí, but weíre growing in number. If Hasbro is paying any attention, (and I suspect that they are), G.I. Joe might stay around for another generation.
