Here's an update from Dealers' Room chair David Means letting them know that a Thursday set-up is no longer in the works. Note the statement towards the end that SoonerCon might "make the Central Plaza our home in perpetuity." We are all lamenting that this did not come to pass. Maybe not all are lamenting.
This is a version of the "Deadline Schedule" that supposedly guided the departments. If it was "X" months away from the Con, then x-y-z should have been completed by your department.
Happy New Year, see you soon I hope!
