This weekend, Bill will be traveling California for signing events. It looks like he will cover the north and south ends of the state. Are you Wacko enough to take the tour with Bill?

Modesto CA 95350-4309

Saturday, Bill moves down to the vicinity of LA –

Sunday, May 5
2 PM to 4 PM

Come and visit with Bill. Remember that this year there will be one special version of the event piece (the Mark Twain Memorial Lighthouse) given away to a person at each of the signing events. You have to be present to win, and you have to buy an LE or event piece from that store to qualify for the drawing. This is a great opportunity for California collectors to event hop with Bill! Even if you can’t make all of them, perhaps you can get to more than one.

Anyone going to be able to make these events? Sign in, and don’t forget to leave a report after the event.

I'm thinking of attending the Modesto event Friday but not because I want to buy the Mark Twain piece...I'll be going to get my Coquille River LE and the bases of my lenses signed...I hope Bill brings that neat gold pen and that it works on the plastic bases of the newest lenses.

Rock,

Bill always carries the gold pen. It does add a nice, "rich" look to the signature. Have fun at the event.

MODESTO:

Arrived right at 3pm, had Bill all to myself for 10 minutes, he signed my Coquille River LE in black pen, the bases to my 3 lenses with that neat gold pin (which makes them look even nicer), and spent some time explaining to me that the bottom of my Coquille was covered in a type of flocking and not felt like the later models; I gave some grief to his rep about the proliferation of open edition giftware and how I felt it was diminishing the value and enjoyment of the LE's, bought the Mark Twain piece (which is much nicer than the pics), and split...I have no idea who won the gold piece...I doubt I was even entered into the contest...

Rock,

You didn't get any inside info from Bill in those 10 minutes?
