Any news yet on when the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation's Astronaut Autograph & Memorabilia Show at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida will be this year? I'd like to get my travel arrangements set to go again this year.

ASF did a great job last year adding several new shuttle era astronauts to their show. A great bunch have been added this year, but will we see any new faces?

Any chance of talking Bob Crippen, Rick Hauck or Brewster Shaw who are on the ASF board into attending? Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

I agree with Brad. I had a great time at the ASF show last year. I got to meet 9 astronauts I have never met before. I would love to attend this year but only if there are new astronauts. Bringing new astronauts in will keep the show fresh and will keep attendance rising.

I can't wait to see the details for this event.

Space Jeopardy hosted by astronaut Dick Gordon for Platinum Plus & Platinum Guests

I wonder if we'll get to play.

Stafford's base fee was $275 in 2009. Had he signed since then, and what was the cost? (Trying to figure out how much OT I'll have to work.... )

I believe General Stafford was at the (some of) nightly events last year however he did not do a signing.

He was cheaper than that at Spacefest in 2011. Don't remember how much cheaper, but I remember people being happy about the lower fee.

Seems like Stafford was $175 at Spacefest but maybe someone has a better memory than I.

Wow great news about Tom Stafford! Seeing as I've never met him, this practically obligates me to go to the show. Please keep getting great guests ASF!

Just saw that Buzz Aldrin was added to the show. Great news. Now if they could just convince Schmitt, Glenn, Mattingly and the Apollo 8 crew. Keep 'em coming ASF!

Just booked my travel arrangements. Really looking forward to it as I went last year and it was great.

I'm only getting a few autographs so if anyone can't go and wants something signed I could get a few things. I did it last year for free for some people who had bought stuff off me and they all seemed happy. It's a big headache so I'm not doing it for free but if anyone wants to pay me $30 on top of the signing fee plus shipping I'll do it. I'll do the shuttle guys I haven't met yet (Cleave, Mullane, a few others) for $20 extra. And by me doing this, I mean maybe 5 or 10 items tops. If anyone's interested send me an email.

Just noticed that they posted signing fees for some of the astronauts. Cernan is $300 again. Most are about the same as last year. Mitchell and Gordon went up $10. McCandless is only $50 which seems cheap though at this point anything under $100 seems cheap.

To answer the question above, I don't recall Stafford having any restrictions last time he signed.

By the way, besides all the Apollo guys, Bob Crippen and Joe Engle would be great guests ASF!

Is there any likelyhood that there will be any Flight Directors/Controllers again this year? Glynn Lunney was a hit last year. Do John Aaron, Jack Garman or Steve Bales do these sort of events?

I know Cernan at ASF has no completion fee. Stafford I don't know about though.

Gerry Griffin and Glynn Lunney were seriously two of the nicest guys you'll ever meet last year at the show.

Are any of the ASF staff members on here so they could answer the Flight Director/Controllers question?

Agree about Glynn Lunney, he took time to explain to me his thoughts on Armstrong being the perfect choice, what the Russians were like when he went over there with the ASTP and he spoke about the 'Angry Alligator' on Gemini 9A. He even drew me a diagram to help explain about the different air pressures in ASTP.

Really hope he is there again.

Me too. As a Platinum Plus holder I gotta say that I'm slightly "disappointed" (not really the right word, but I was hoping for even more great guests) with the line-up so far. I would love to meet more of the MCC guys and some of the more recent shuttle astronauts (Eileen Collins, Jerry Ross, Chris Ferguson, Bill Shepherd, Ken Bowersox etc).
