I’m at the gate drinking a beer waiting for them to start boarding the plane (in Las Vegas you can get a beer in a to go cup and drink it anywhere after you get through security, but you can’t of course take it in the plane.).
Looking forward to this weekend in North Carolina!
I’m now in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. I went to my hotel but it is not ready for me to check in yet. It turns out alot of the wrestlers are also at this hotel next to the Fairgrounds and I saw some of them such as Ricky Morton and (I think) Ronnie Garvin having breakfast at the restaurant in the lobby.
I’m about to have lunch at this BBQ restaurant that Tournament Master recommended once it is open at 11 and then I am going to try and check into my hotel again and then go to the free Fan Fest.
I had to leave the Fan Fest early because there was an issue at home (I apparently did not give my cat sitter the newest key to my front door but I was able to arrange a locksmith to meet her there later today.)
so far I have the following copies of my cards autographed:
LOW cards autographed Bobby Fulton
I was told Austin Idol will be at the Fan Fest signing autographs tomorrow. I have not seen Luke Williams or James Mitchell so far though.
Indy cards autographed Angelina Love Thom Latimer Kerry Morton Arez Ruffo The Clown Yabo The Clown
So far I have been able to make 7 signings for the game including somebody who will definitely headline an Indy set. One of the 7 names is an LOW name, but I won't really take credit for it as it is somebody who had already very recently said yes to being in the game but they just had not signed the release form yet. D-Von Dudley was out but I did not talk to him as he is going to be in Waterloo next month so it is probably best to wait and have guys like Jerry Brisco, Mike, Chad, etc talk to him at that time IMO.
I gave Kerry Morton copies of his card when he was sitting at a table with Ricky today. I also gave Arez copies of his card and he told me I did a really good job on the moves on the back of his card (it was a challenging card to do as much of his Strange Style offense is very unique.) Arez then helped me get at least 1 more signing at today's Fan Fest.
I went back to the hotel to rest (I could not sleep on the red eye flight and I have been up for 32 1/2 hours) but I will go back for Night 1 of the Crockett Cup in about an hour (my hotel is only about 5 minutes away.)
I wish I could have met husky77 today, but he had to work at the last minute. Perhaps I will see guiltyparty there tonight?
Looking forward to Night 1 of the Crockett Cup tonight, tomorrow afternoon's Fan Fest, and then Night 2 of the Crockett Cup tomorrow night.

That's cool about all the signings! And super cool that the wrestlers dig their cards and help with other signings! Sounds like a fun, but exhausting trip! Get some much deserved rest and enjoy the show! I'm looking forward to the results of this tournament! I'm a big Wrecking Ball fan, so hoping the Fixers do well.
