    Looks like I'm going to miss it again this year.

    At least it's because I'm so busy I can't take the time off.

    I went to GIE last year. I couldn't make it to the demo day. But went to the show on saturday. It was alright. Alot of neat stuff, and alot of stuff I didn't really care about. It's kind of fun listening to the reps explane why their mower is so much better than the other guys mower. I also had lunch with the Hustler guys. Great group of guys. Plus I scored a free hat from Pj(mowerconsultant).

    I will be there on Friday. Yes we are all busy this time of year with leaves and other fall cleanup stuff. But if you can't take a day or two off then why are we working for ourself.

    I'll be there tomorrow, Saturday. I just like to see all the new products. Does anybody know about anymore in North Carolina this year? I went to one last year in Greensboro, not sure of the name of the expo. I do know about the turfgrass expo in Winston-Salem in January. Just thought there might be more.

    Can you post or PM me the web address for that show? I'm about an hour and a half away from there and I'm interested in going if it's on a weekend.
