    I don't know, 20 vendors is pretty small. Guess I'll give them a call and see who registered as a vendor and then decide, but if its a dead day and the wife wants to go for a drive, I might go.

    I might go. What's bugs me, is why do we have to pay to get into these things?? I'm going to look at equipment I may be buying, don't the vendors want me there? I relate this to having to pay $20 to enter the door of your local dealer to look at equipment... dealers wouldn't even think of doing that.

    Just something that bothers me.

    I need to go get another cup of coffee.

    Im not sure if ill check it out or not. Ill put money on it that the money they charge to get in is going to the connecticut grounds keepers association. Like you say, most vendors will have ya come for free and hand out all sorts of goodies just to get you to look at their machines. When is the next ganos open house in colchester? that is always a pretty good small little show.
