    No, most of them live on the lake on the other side of the county. Maybe Scott does?

    Ray, How does this show compare to the turfgrass show in Charlotte next week ? I haven't been to a show yet but I have some down time now to do a little traveling. Thanks.

    Can't honestly answer the questionon comparing, wasn't very active last year. I do know the CGMA show will get you a total of 5 credits for your NC pesticide license if you need it alson with lunch for $25, not bad.
