OK, folks. The annual 52+Joker convention next year is going to be in Erlanger KY, where Cincinnati (Ohio) Airport known as "Cinci Northern Kentucky Airport" is located.
For those of you who are not familiar with the specifics, Erlanger is where the US Playing Cards Co is located, after they moved from the original location in Norwood, a suburb of Cincinnati.
The exact dates might not be correct, but I have 12 to 15 October penciled in, and I will update this as time goes on to get the exact dates correct, hotel, etc
Actually, unless it changes the hotel will be the Holiday Inn Airport Cincinnati, which of course is actually in Erlanger KY. Right now the group discount code is not available yet, but I will post it as soon as I get it.
Donna and I have already planned a week tour of the Mammoth Cave region of Kentucky, which is around 120 (150?) miles south west of Erlanger. We plan to drive up through Asheville NC and Knoxville TN to Cave City KY (nearest "city" to Mammoth Caves the Sunday before the convention, and moving to Erlanger on Wednesday, because (again, unless it changes, and I will say that's not likely because the host has already planned the facilities tour for Thursday, October 12, 2017). Staying at the Holiday Inn Cincinnati Airport until Sunday, the 15th and then driving back to Charleston by way of Knoxville and Asheville.
If you have not been to a 52+Joker convention, this is the one you want to make!
