FLASH! Finally, some good news for GIjOE fans in the “Windy City!” After a lengthy period of inactivity, CGCC club member Kevin Bolger has just revealed that their club is in fact, NOT “kaput” as many had thought, and that it is planning to host another GIjOE/Action Figure Toy show this September. Here’s what Kevin had to say recently over on the Trenches Forum:
“To paraphrase Mark Twain, the rumors of the demise of the Chicago GIjOE Club are greatly exaggerated. Unfortunately, life has interfered with the hobby for many of us, but we still get together a couple of times a year. Please don’t base our “demise” on fewer Trenches posts or not always hosting an annual show.
We’re entering our 13th (?) year as a club and we’ve seen folks come into the hobby and go out of the hobby, but the “lifers” like me are still here. In fact, for those of you in the Chicago area (or who don’t mind making a little trip), please join us on Saturday March 10th from 10am – noon at the Schaumburg Township District Library (Schaumburg & Roselle Roads). We’ll be meeting on the 2nd floor in the Rasmussen North Room.
And YES! We are planning on hosting a show this September, usual location in Algonquin, Illinois at the high school. Date and details will soon follow after our March meeting. Regards, Chicago Joe (aka Kevin Bolger)”
