It’s crunch time Breakthru’ites!

In less than 50 days the largest and most recognized convention in North America dedicated to the band Queen will begin.

Don’t sit on the fence any longer and get registered NOW! This is your opportunity to rub elbows with those closet to Queen so don’t miss this opportunity.

Don’t miss out on the brilliant tribute band Celebrating Queen. They are planning a full out assault of your musical senses and will definitely rock you!

For the first time at a North American Convention Peter ‘Phoebe’ Freestone will attend and do a presentation and question and answer session. Peter as you may know was Freddie’s assistant, oh the stories he will tell us! Peter has attended the UK convention many times as well as other gatherings. If you never could get over to the other side of the pond to witness and meet Peter then this is your chance to ask him all those questions you have been dying to ask. And that only happens at Breakthru July 16-18th 2010 in Detroit.

The ever graceful and fun Jacky Smith will be in Detroit. Holder of the keys to the Queendom world! Ok maybe not all of it, but who does everyone call when they need something or have a question? Jacky of course. This is your chance to meet her, ask her questions and so on.

Get yourself ready for rare videos, brutal trivia, all things “Flash” costume contest, charity raffle and auction, evening buffet, games, contests and fun.

So come join Queen fans from Europe, the UK, all points North and South of the US, and points East and West of Canada at Breakthru The Official North American Queen Convention July 16-18th 2010 Detroit Michigan.

Detroit?  Did anyone in Queen look at the demographic before choosing this city?

It is within driving distance for most people in the eastern half of the US.  The one time I recall that the convention was held in Dallas Texas, the attendance was about 1/3 of what it was the previous year in Cleveland.


Roger: I like it. If you don't. Sod you!

Grandkid!!! Are you trying to get punched!! :) I'll have you know the eldest CHILD just turned 12!! Anthony will be 7 in July. Can you believe it?  I sure can't!

Anyway, Detroit is too far, Cleveland I might have sucked it up and gone but D-town.....blah.

Are you flying to Detroit? If you lay over in Cincy you better let me know. I'm sure flying out of ATL you won't have a layover but just in case.


Meep!!!

Well, Detroit was great, the committee was great, Jacky and Phoebe were outstanding, the participants were for the most part grand and friendly as always.......the hotel and staff.........no comment.  I'll let Paul and others comment if they want.

Had a great time seeing old friends that we hadn't seen in a couple of years, meeting some newbies, and discussing some topics indepth with those who chose to share.  Kathy (thanks for sharing all the Brian stories), Dave T, , Ed, Jennifer, Gina, Brian, hula Karen....et al....the new found and lost long bonds.

Illiena and Danny...yes, we will come up to Montreal for a RedWings-Canadiens game when scheduled.

Stacey, Janet, Wendy, Ricky, Nora,....sexy Paul in the pool upon my arrival, Ray, Julie, Jim, Dave Y and Colleen Michelle....Nan and Jacky... thanks as always.

Phoebe was FAB, and what a gentleman.  Provided more personal info than one could expect.

btw...his favorite Freddie song is 'How Can I Go On'.  One of my top 5 is the Freddie solo collection version.

Allen:  Once again, Susan says thanks for the HRC pin.

Really hope it's in Chicago or Atlanta or Philly or Memphis or Nashville or New York for the 10th anniversary.  New formats might help a tad as well.

From your 2010 Trivia Contest qualifying round high point champion (who gave up his spot in the finals for an enthusiastic unqualifying participant....who ended up being very ungrateful without one 'thank you' afterwards)

I came as a defending champion.  I left as one.
