Attendees: So far I have about 15 collectors that are planning to attend (via RSVP). I have about five non-collectors that will be attending as well. This event is open to the public. Bring your fans, friends, and stories!

MeltFest: The City of Rockford will be hosting 6th annual MeltFest the same day as Fan Flock. There will be MeltFest Beer & Spirits Tasting in Owly Oop (the restaurant on the 2nd floor of the facility) starting at 4 p.m.

Weather: As of today, about 90% of the snow has melted, which is fantastic news because we had about 20 inches more than normal! The weather is looking fair and clear for the Rockford area. The forecast for Fan Flock is 60° and partly cloudy, with only a 20% chance of rain. Hopefully the regional weather will cooperate as we will have many collectors traveling from long distances!

Rumor has it that there will a couple collectors that are coming into a load of GE brass bells and Emersons 646s. Approximately 30-40 fans that will be for sale. Decent shape fans but dusty, but that never stops any of us! Fans are mostly complete. Brass blades and cages will be very reasonably priced, too. 

Bring cash and your checkbooks!!!

FAN FLOCK FOOD UPDATE
The restaurant, Owly Oop, was supposed to be open during Fan Flock. However, the volleyball tournament was cancelled and Owly Oop will not be open until 3 p.m. So, we are moving to Plan B. I am working with the chef of Owly Oop to have a small catered luncheon.  

PLAN B:
  • 9 a.m. - Coffee and pastries will be provided
  • Noon - A light catered lunch will be provided. The menu will be as follows:
    • Fruit platter 
    • Veggie platter
    • Italian style salad
    • Barbecue Chicken Skewers
    • Cookies
    • Soda will be provided. There are also water bottle filling stations on site. 
If you have any special dietary needs, please plan accordingly. Your cooperation and patience is appreciated as this was an foreseen circumstance.
