Default Upcoming Chicago Drum Show 2018

Hey ya'll! I am excited to be able to say that I am going to be able to make it to the Chicago Drum Show this year. I've been wanting to go for several years and the stars finally aligned for me.

Any of you veterans have any tips on maximizing my show experience?
I sent in an email hoping to maybe get into the master class taught by Carter McLean.

Also, are any of you manning a booth? I'd like to make sure I stop by and meet for a bit.
If I come across something that I just can't live without, how do I get it home? Will people box a set up and ship (for a fee, of course)?

Thanks!

Will do Mike! Allen lives near me and we've worked a trade in the past. I'm pretty sure I bought a kit from Bub once too! I'll definitely come by
