Monthly Update:

It’s been a little hectic trying to get the October 1-3 Show organized this time around, but it looks like we are finally caught up and ready to get the party started.

We’ve had over 20 different Guests confirm, then have something come up so they couldn’t make the show over the last couple of months. We’ve had invited guests unable to attend because they are taking care of relatives, starting a film project in the next few weeks, or say they will be with us and just sort of “disappear” when we tried to book their flights or get things arranged. It’s been interesting to say the least. The guest list is a little smaller than usual this time around, but we’ve got a terrific group of first time guests that are all looking forward to meeting with fans and having a good time right along with everyone attending and you’ll find little bios for all of our attending guests posted on the web site.

We also just posted the entire Weekend Schedule of Films and Events. There are a couple of regular events that are either taking a show off this time around, or moved time slots, so take note of them when you are looking over the schedule. But we once again scheduled roughly 60 hours worth of stuff into the three day weekend so there is still more to do and see than any one person can possibly do in three days. That’s why it’s always a good idea to plot out your weekend early so you don’t miss anything you might like to see.

You’ll find a link at the top of the Films and Events page of the show’s web site that will take you to a printable Weekend Schedule.

PASSES: If you purchased an Advance Pass to the April 2020 Show, then that pass is now good until you use it. We have a list of everyone that purchased passes for the April 2020 Show, so to make it as easy as possible on everyone, all you need to do is show up and have an I.D. to pick up a pass or passes to a future show. We will just remove people from that master list as they use their passes.
Otherwise, you still have a little time to order a 3-Day Pass in advance and save a few bucks over at-the-door prices on Friday, October 1st.

BOOKING A HOTEL ROOM: Booking a room for the October 1-3 Show is going to be a little different this time around as you won’t be able to do it on line. The hotel is changing names. When? Why, on October 1st, naturally. So the Holiday Inn can’t take reservations after September 30th since they won’t be a Holiday Inn on October 1st.
To make a room reservation this time around, you are going to need to call the hotel directly and have Heather Leyden take your room reservation. You can call her Monday through Friday 8am-5pm at 440-783-3010. Or, you can email her with a convenient time to call you back and she will get back to you. hleyden@histrongsville.com

With the way things are going, there is also a good chance there will be rooms available the weekend of the show. You can always check at registration when you arrive. Online room reservations will be back for the April 8-10, 2022 CW Show, so this is just a little one time inconvenience due to the hotel changing names.

And Lastly, we would like to ask everyone to…


Regardless of your vaccine status, feel free to wear a face covering or mask if you feel safer wearing one.
It’s also a good idea to have a mask handy in case the Vendor and Guest Room or the Screening Rooms get crowded.
Please Do Not gather or congregate with friends in the Vendor and Guest Room, and keep the isle ways clear so we don’t get jam-up’s.
Please don’t crowd around the guests tables. They are here all weekend.
Practice general social distance guidelines, like not crowding up on people if standing in a line for guests, walking down a crowded hallway, etc. Be courteous. We’re all in this together.

Normally, at the end of the last update before show time, I’m plugging the next show. Well, with as hectic as things were getting this show organized and having so many guests come and go over the last couple of months, we do not have any guests or reunions lined up for the April 8-10, 2022 Show. But we plan on having the show, so just be patient and we will see what we can get together in the next couple of months.

OK, that’s it for me this time around.

See you in a few weeks,
