That get your attention? Thought it might...lol

At this year's AMPS International Show in Auburn Indiana, AMPS Chicagoland is again hosting the famous ( alright...maybe the infamous...) Chicagoland Shindig. We've hosted this event during the previous Auburn shows and also at the last show in Havre de Grace.

As with the prior couple of bashes we hosted in Auburn, this one will be held on Friday evening during the show, at the Auburn Quality Inn ( formerly the Auburn Inn ), in the breakfast room, lobby, screened porches, and probably the the parking lot too... starting at 8:30 pm and lasting until the beer runs out.

We're serving the best beer in the known universe....FREE BEER!

So come on over to the Quality Inn and have a few beers and snacks on AMPS Chicagoland and talk tanks!

See you in Auburn!

I did the Chicagoland cruise in 09 and it was a blast. Free beers helped. I already told the So Cal AMPS group we have to attend. They will learn the way of the force.
I also want to urge anyone still on the fence about comming to Auburn. GO! This looks like it is going to be another great show. I can not tell you how much fun these shows are. You have a great formula of Tanks, Models, Beer and Vendors ( Armor focused). And don't forget Judging is a great way to not only see some of the best armor models in the world up close. So all I can say is " CAll in Well" and get to Auburn next week.
See you in a week

....speaking of the highly coveted blue honorary AMPS Chicagoland shirt, rumour has it that we'll be awarding another one during the Shindig.

I wonder who the next victi....er, umm...honoree will be?
