    Louisville was great... On Saturday, the doors to Expo opened at 9:00 and I didn't get outside until 3:00. The equipment demos were outside and open until 5:00. There were more toys than you could shake a stick at. They had mowers from companies that I never heard of before. The trip was worth the gas and hotel money. I went back on Sunday and again on Monday. What a hoot. <p>I didn't get to meet anyone from this forum. I know I was too busy looking and trying to find a deal. I did bring home a new landscape trailer. Yippee!<br><p>----------<br>--Disneyland on the Potomac - ICQ [icq]31223414[/icq]<br>www.go-emerald.com

    i no when we have out annual lawn and garden show at our local expo center at the end the booths sold all there display equipment off pretty cheap so they didnt have to lug it out of there. Exmark lazers and other various equipment sell quite cheap. was it the same situation there?

    HI GUYS-<p>We had a good time there this year again! It seemed though that last year the presentations were more &quot;goal oriented&quot;. Not to say that they weren't any good, but not industry specific. <p>Evan- <br>Some of the vendors were selling the equipment on site and it was a decent deal. Exmark rep said that they take it back to the facory to use for demo's etc.... If that's the case then they must have a bunch of them sitting back there collecting dust....<p><br>Overall great show, beautiful weather. Going back next year too!!!<p>Mike<br>Greenkeepers
