    Getting ready to book my trip again this year to the GIE Expo. Anyone already booked their hotel?
    Had a great time the last 2 years and look forward to another one this year. If you haven't been, you are missing out. It is a ton of fun and there are even prizes and give-aways.

    I finished up my reservations for the 2010 GIE Expo this morning. I decided to stay at the Seelbach Hilton this time. It's a definite splurge, but it's right in the middle of everything and a shuttle stop to the Expo.
    Hope to catch up with some of you this time!
    Oh yeah, bes sure to fill out any drawing cards you see. I'll tell you more about that soon.

    Now I can let the cat out of the bag! I was the winner of the drawing by Everride in October at the GIE expo. I won a Wasp walk-behind of my choice. We needed a 36 more than a 48 or 52 so I went with the small unit. I went to the factory today to get a tour, and to receive my new mower. I was very impressed with every phase of the operation. I was treated royally, and am amazed to have won something at all. I never win anything!! LOL!! Here are some pics I want to share....
