Several of us are floating the idea of resurrecting the late- great East Coast Prop Party toward the end of July, possibly the weekend of July 27th.

Right now, the thought is to hold it at the Best Western Hotel in Towamencin, Pennsylvania, which is conveniently located off of the Pennsylvania Turnpike just outside of Philadelphia.

Previous ECPP attendees know the hotel as the place where we stayed and partied before the actual party, which was held at a nearby fireman's hall. But since the hotel has a bar and restaurant on premises, as well as several large banquet rooms, we figured why not just have the party there?

The ECPP has always been a fun event, with a decent turn-out. But previous parties tended to be somewhat insular and clique-ish.

What we're proposing for this event is an open invitation with no strings attached, and all past history and drama left outside the door.

There's a general feeling in the air -- a desire to get back to the grass roots of the hobby. Let's run with the feeling and get something going.

Whattya say?

Here are some pictures from parties past:

Great idea, John! My whereabouts that weekend are unknown at the moment (whether I'm in NY or FL by then will depend on the outcome of a job interview that I have on the 15th), but if I'm around I'll be there.

As I have said before, I will do whatever I can to be there.

Thanks for doing this!

How far is it from Philly? I have some friends there? I told my girlfriend about it and she said she would head off to Atlantic City to gamble while we are geeking out if she goes. It is also her kids b'day a couple days later. I should be able to make it down though. As long as I get my truck fixed and I don't get arrested by the cops for carrying toy guns. I will just have to make sure they are not peeking out of my luggage.Razz. Hopefully I will have the Vidphon Done by then. Good to give myself a deadline on it so I stop slacking on it.

As long as it doesn't land on the same day as my wife's birthday party I'll be there.
