From the Tmart Facebook page:

I can't thank you all enough for the kind words and show of support in me trying to bring back what I always said was the best wrestling weekend of the year.

I am going to try my best to make this a fun weekend for all next year. That's what I want it to be for you all. Fun!
Few quick things I can let out of the bag.

We all have to remember this event will be run by Tmart promotions and will be different.

1. Hotel is 100% confirmed. They told me the room blocks will be up sometime next week.
Room block will be from Wednesday August 14th until Sunday August 18th.

2. I have decided to go back to a Superticket again. A lot more details to come on that.

3rd. Before you all ask we will have a banquet type event on Friday night. It will not and can't be hall of heros any more.

4th. Yes we will have live Wrestling matches and Q & A taking place.

We will start to work on our website but once we get the group code from the hotel I will post.
Again thank you and I hope you all come out to support Tmart next year.

Very interesting.

I'm sure he had his reasons, but I always thought it was a shame that Greg Price stopped holding the fanfest event in Charlotte. It seems like the fan base is ready made and eager to keep some sort of event going.

I'll be keeping an eye on this one. The Charlotte shows are where this fella first earned his handle "16times" !

I loved Greg’s shows. So many great meets and memories over the years. I’ll be following too buT I can’t really i can’t really imagine what he can do that would entice me. I would love nothing better then to hit Charlotte for the weekend ...there just aren’t really any of the old school names left I haven’t met that I would care about.

I think the only thing NWA/Crockett related that could get me to make a trip down to Charlotte would be Ole Anderson with the rest of his Horsemen crew, but that doesn't seem likely. And even if they did book him, he'd be a high cancellation risk due to his health, so even he wouldn't be a slam dunk to get me there.

Actually AJLe, Ole would be the one most guaranteed not to cancel. He was a staple of the show under Price and would always hang in the lobby talking to fans and doing combos. Assuming he is booked under tmart, only way he wouldn't attend would be if he died.

I feel like it’s been 5 years since I was there and ole looked worse every year. 5 years later, could be in pretty rough shape physically.

Yeah ole was a staple of greg’s shows but that was also years ago and ole is in worse shape now. Plus who knows if he will even travel to this show since Greg is not involved. Ole also did cancel on Greg before for health issues.

I'd really need there to be a lot of wants who have never been in the Northeast or who haven't been here in nine or 10 years at least. I went to this event in 2013 and 2014 -- not the best years, but a fun event nonetheless. I wouldn't need anyone who was at those two shows either, obviously

Yes he lives outside of Atlanta. He won’t fly maybe that’s what you mean.

Charlotte is about 2 hours from where he lives. When me and my friend had dinner with him in 2013 (and that was a few minutes from his house) we drove to Charlotte the next day and it was just under 2 hours

Close enough to being local, which backs what I've said. He doesn't like traveling hence why over the years he was "exclusive" to Greg Price's shows.
