52+Joker convention in Erlanger KY October 2017

Unread postby Mike Ratledge » Wed Nov 30, 2016 2:01 pm  

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!

This will definitely be the convention to attend. USPCC has become much more involved with 52+joker over the last few years and I'm sure there will be a lot of goodies available. I'm excited about touring the facility and possibly see what is in the works for future decks.

There will be much more information and as we get it, we'll be sure to pass it on.

I'm thrilled to read about the Erlanger KY event in October. Yes, please confirm all details at their earliest confirmation so i may make plans. I've never attended a convention but have been collecting for about 2 years and have obtained 250+ beautiful decks. How does a convention itinerary go? Thank you, Tom Burianek

I'm hoping to. I missed last year and it looks like I may not be able to afford to go this year. I'm waiting till closer to September.

I booked a room and plan to be there, Jay. I put a rental car on the list, so all I need now is a plane ticket. That's a bit far to drive for me from Charleston SC. I suppose that I might still do so if we go back to our original plans which were to combine it with a revisit to Mammoth Caves - also in KY.

If anyone wants to split a room, let me know. I plan on booking a room by the end of July.

Also, I plan on driving so if anyone on, or near, my route wants a ride let me know. I'll be traveling from New orleans. Most likely route will be New Orleans - Birmingham - Nashville - Louisville - Cincinnati.

PM me if you're interested in either.

Early on, I had planned to be there. But with my daughter starting college (out of state), it's not in the finances for me now. Big bummer. If there's an exclusive tour deck, please take pity on me Jay and pick up an extra. :)
