RK Shows Prepper Show
Gwinnett County Fairgrounds
Lawrenceville, Georgia
Aug 27 - Aug 28
Saturday 9-6 Sunday 9-4

2405 Sugarloaf Parkway
Lawrenceville, Georgia 30045

Tickets at the door are $12

Also, the Southeastern Preppers Network (SEPN) is having their meeting during this event nearby, details on their forum.
And, so we're not fully depending on links, here's the post on the SEPN forums:

Time: 1:00 PM
That should give you plenty of time to hit the show either in the morning or the afternoon as it runs from 9-6. Also, they hand stamp, so you could go, take a lunch break, and go back

Location: Green Tomato Home Cooking Buffet
256 Gwinnett Dr
Lawrenceville, GA 30046
(Almost at the intersection of Hwy 124 & Gwinnett Drive)

(770) 338-7577

It's 2.7 miles from the fairgrounds. Click here for Google Map directions from the show to the restaurant

All are welcome! Old-timers, visitors, interested parties. There won't be an agenda - just lunch with good friends and new friends and a good time to be had by all.

If you're driving in a ways and not familiar with the area, there is just about "one of everything" on the main drag out by the fairgrounds including an Academy Sports and a pretty decent Army/Navy store if you want to round out a full prepping day.
What are your thoughts on this one? I remember it wasn't cheap to table here, but the crowd was really into us. We could just meet up as a group, attend the show, and then go get a bite to eat nearby (similar to what the SEPN is planning). Tables are listed for $125, and I don't think they gave too much of a discount to us last year for being a non-profit, and not selling anything. This is also the weekend before Dragon Con, and that's something that you can't be burned out before even arriving. I don't know. I'd like to attend this event, but I might not necessarily want to table. But hey, if anybody else is enthusiastic about tabling, I'll support them.

I think as a charity organisation I paid $30 for our table last year. That is the day after I return from Wisconsin so I'm not sure if I'll be unpacked and ready by then. I'd like to go if I have the time though.

$30? Wow, I thought it was more, but I do remember you were handling it. So, maybe they would extend to us a similar deal this year, as $30 is much easier to swallow than $125. Their website shows an available table quantity still at 199, which I assume to mean nobody has really bought them out of tables yet, and plenty of space is still available. I'll run this by Mara, as there were some vendors selling objects she objected to, but she also got a pistol last year. We'll see.

I know the reason we weren't considering these shows this year is because Mara expressed concerns at our 2016 planning meeting last November or January. If it's still an issue, I am totally fine with not tabling here. Plenty of other events for us to work with.

If it is something we are interested in tabling at, I'm all for that too. Unless my schedule changes, I should have that weekend off. It is close to Dragoncon, but I'd be down to table as long as I actually have that weekend off.

Just want to make sure everyone is comfortable with whatever decision is made.

I'm out of town that weekend, so good luck with whatever you decide to do.
