    Sean, Chuck & whoever else,
    Any thought of doing a Lawnsite.com conference or something like that? I'm sure the sponsors would be willing to participate and probably many other manufacturers that aren't sponsors would love to market their goods to the guys in the business. Plus it'd be cool to meet some of the people that frequent the site.

    Maybe bobbygedd could have a stand up comedy routine one night for entertainment.

    You guys probably already have looked into this but since this is my first year in the biz thought it'd be something worth attending if it happened.

    I don't think he meant LS has one every year, he meant a convention of pros at the EXPO in Louisville. Everyone could all meet at the South Wing, and head out to Bardstown Road for some festivities...LOL

    I know of the Expo in Louisville, but the timing isn't very good. Isn't it in October or something like that? Something in Jan. or Feb. would be a bit easier to make.

    Ever have one of those cabers come back down on your head? I have to admit that the highland games look like fun, but you best be in shape or you might get killed.

    I also post on a ski forum. Every year we (the members) step up and organise a "summit". People vote on where they want to go and then usually some locals step up to the plate and help get things organised. We get the industry to sponsor and we do a fund raiser as part of the summit to raise money for a worthy cause. I was just thinking the other day that it would be cool to do something like that here.
