Live in the Portland-Metro area, so Centralia is a bit of a drive... but we only have one show a year here in Vancouver so.... and the PDX one is kind of lame(can't buy handguns and lots of hippy shit).

Is it worth going to the centralia show?

I went once. I doubt I'll ever go back. I wasn't to terribly impressed with the selection there. There was some good stuff, but not worth the drive IMO

Try the links in the announcement at the top of this forum. There is also some show I think the 2nd Saturday of every month or so at some grange hall in the area. I forget the details but they are in that link.

Stokes, I think he said "here in Vancouver" so I'm guessing he's on the WA side.

But he also said Portland, and his state is listed as WA, so we're all guessing at this point.



Take it to EE or be banned.

Carlos, friend of mine is a member of the place that you are taking about I think.. SW Washington club is what they are.

Dad wants to make the trip up there to see Stokes tables so, I'm bumming a ride.

And yeah.. live in vancouver(well, actually Washougal, WA, but yeah), but we only have 1 or two shows a year this side of the river

Call us Portland, WA for a reason

YEP, 'ARMS COLLECTORS OF SW WASHINGTON' IS THE LEGAL AND PROPER NAME OF THE CLUB THAT HOLDS THE SHOWS AT THE BARBERTON GRANGE..............

AND NOW THAT I'M THROUGH GIVING THE PLACE A PLUG...CENTRAILIA IS USUALLY ABOUT HALF OF WHAT EXPO IS THESE DAYS...NOT BAD FOR A SMALL SHOW....USED TO BE ON PAR WITH LONGVIEW, BUT THE LAST COUPLE OF LONGVIEW SHOWS HAVE JUST BEEN PURE KRAP...NOT 'KRAP' TABLES OF BEANIE BABIES AND AIRLIMP, BUT JUST THE SHOW WAS LESS THAN THE SIZE OF BARBERTON...

SO TO CONCLUDE, CENTRAILIA IS A FUR PIECE TO DRIVE FOR THE SIZE OF THE SHOW FROM VANCOUVER, ORYGUN(I LIKE THAT...'VANCOUVER, ORYGUN', KINDA SINGS......) BUT PROBABLY WORTH IT ONCE IN A WHILE...STILL CAN'T HOLD A CANDLE TO PULYALLUP THOUGH...........
