    I attended a dealers open house last year. They had several units for sale that the distributor dropped off. I was not looking for anything at the time but it was good to demo some equipment.

    I like going to my dealers open house. They had theirs last thursday. I ate some bbq, ordered a walker and bought some edger blades. I like the sales, but what I really like is talking to the reps and seeing or hearing about new products.

    I think it's always good when everyone can get together like that. It's good for the dealer's business as well as the LCO. Communication...it is a must. You never know what might come out of a getting together at a open house. Plus it is fun. Food and equipment.....love it!

    Spent about $2,000.00 at my dealers open house last month. Took advantage of specials. Now all I have to is pay for it. :rolleyes:

    I got your invite in my mail box today for the open house. I plan to be there! Prices look very competitive. Will be picking up 4 toro 21"s and some whackers for sure! I have enjoyed ordering parts from y'all this last year and look forward to meeting y'all then!
