Best Boy (4/23)



  1. Outstanding news but last time I looked at the history books Neil Armstrong was first man on the moon and not Buzz Aldrin... And Neil didn't ever attend a Showmasters event...
  2. It was an awesome show... Really enjoyed the variety of Bond Girl guests... Had a wonderful chat with Marguerite Le Wars during Saturdays dinner. Once again, thanks for putting on a brilliant show... and for your outstanding customer service!!
  3. That's made my mind up.. I won't be attending. If Samantha Bond and Tony Brooks were attending on the Saturday I'd make it but I'm not driving down from Scotland on Sunday for 2 hours of show... . I much prefer the show when its at the Radisson
  4. Excellent guest... More Bond Girls though please
  5. The show was great... All the guests I met were very friendly/accomodating. Only negative I'd say is that a map/diagram showing where various aspects of the show were to be found would have been helpful. I had to ask a handful of people where the lectures/photoshoots were as it wasn't widely known. Some of the crew said "sorry, I don't know"... I also heard an Italian guy asking the same... he was trying to find his way to one of the astronaut lectures. Also, the lectures were much shorter than at previous shows... Rich Graham's was only 20 minutes or so on the Saturday... The lectures used to be 45-60 minutes long if I recall correctly.
  6. Dammitt..... He was one of the guests I was REALLY looking forward to meeting. Hope you can get him to attend another time!
  7. What planet are you on... not in "Autographica World"? Peoples commitments can and DO change. Sure it can be a massive blow but DEAL WITH IT. Should Dave and co sue Buzz Aldrin? How will that help to have him confirm for a future show? How about if you had booked/paid to attend a show in Phoenix, Arizona once Jim McDivitt & Frank Borman had been announced.... and when you were on holiday in USA found out that the 2 main reasons for you attending the show had cancelled. Cost of two airline tickets/hotels about £3000.... The show was still AWESOME and had a great time... not meeting Borman & McDivitt (though with thanks to Dave and his crew met McDivitt at the 2008 Autographica). Get off the guy's case.
  8. Neil was the first to walk on the moon but I don't think its fair to say he's "the man who started it all". The first man in space was Yuri Gagarin, first American Alan Shepard... first American to orbit was John Glenn.... There were 13 American's in space before Armstrong (not including X-15 pilots flying above 50 miles altitude).
  9. She's still listed on the 'pre-order' page, and that page has been updated too. I think its just an error . The new 'headline' picture is an unusual choice.... That's a relief... missed both Honor and Lana Wood at their previous appearances at the show (wasn't collecting Bond girl autographs then) and would be gutted to miss her this time. I don't know about being unusual.... The Space guests usually draw the longest lines... Plus they're very recent announcements.
  10. Honor Blackman is no longer listed on the Autographica website... I hope its just an omission and that she is still coming?
  11. Fantastic news... and Norm Thagard too... You're spoiling us Dave... Would also like to meet Rusty Schweickart again if thats possible
  12. I met Tom at the first ASF show at KSC in 2008.... He's a wonderful guy and a great addition.... Same goes for Bill Oefelein.. Looking forward to meeting him Dave!
  13. That's quite a hike Dave... I know its not your doing but at the 2004 show at Coventry I could get 3 signatures for that price and still have a fiver left for a drink at the bar. It has to be said though that the £65 is in line with the $100 fee for Scott's signature at the ASF show in November in Florida. At the ASF show in Florida in 2008 the price was $50 per word (base fee was $350) though at the start of the show the fee was $30 per word. I'd guestimate it will be around £30-£35 per word.....
