The 2nd West Coast Fan Fiesta is on! After negotiating with the church, we are on for 8:30 to 3:30 on October 21st. The location is the Belmont Heights United Methodist Church at 317 Termino Ave, Long Beach CA, which is just south of Los Angeles. So far, I plan to be there at 8ish to set up so anyone who wants to be there early, you are more than welcome to. I am renting 6' banquet tables for $20 each (I will have 15-20 available, first come first serve) to help cover costs, not for my fan fund! Please bring fans for sale/show, it should be fun. Lunch and morning coffee will be provided. For those who attended my meet 3 years ago, this will be very similar and in the same location. Anybody can park for free in the adjacent lot. There is a ramp to help bring fans down to the room. I will be calling all CA members and possibly West Coast members as well on Saturday. I'm looking forward to it and to seeing some new and old faces. If you need to contact me please call at 562.225.2891 and leave a message. You can also pm me. Here's a link to the address for those who are curious: https://www.google.com/maps/place/317+Termino+Ave,+Long+Beach,+CA+90814/@33.7686109,-118.1466811,3a,75y,306.94h,91.45t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1suGVJoNy3BTAUz4WNSJ_xzA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!4m5!3m4!1s0x80dd31b1f8971ac1:0xf010c5a47dc233c9!8m2!3d33.7686944!4d-118.1469239

So far I have 10 people who have committed to coming, many with fans in tow. 5 people are on the maybe list, and many more have yet to return my call. Good start.

List is updated above. A former member contacted me saying that he planned on bringing several BMY fans as well as 3 stars and brass bell oscillators, perhaps a Kim Frank restored raffle fan for sale and other restored fans for display. If you need a GE, this may be the time to get one.
