Bob Hastings played the role of Lt. Carpenter on McHale's Navy. One of my favorites is the episode where he takes command and starts bossing everyone around. I think it was called "Carpenter Takes Command" or "Carpenter in Charge." Anyway, Hastings will be making one of his VERY RARE public appearances for fans. He will meet and greet fans, pose for photographs and sign autographs. If I read it correctly, he is doing this for charity.
If you are a fan of McHale's Navy, this is a rare opportunity. I am a frequent attendee every year and I even have a glossy photo with most of the stars signing so I am looking forward to this. And this year I am psyched! The Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention, Clarion Hotel, Aberdeen Hotel, August 27 - 29, 2009
