    Yea
    You’re not getting much turn out
    For outdoor demos
    Not to mention the northern guys are in the middle of snow season which is unpredictable.

    Of course for us Alaskans 82 degrees was friggin brutal.
    Especially when half the people think AK means Arkansas, ugh... really?
    Low patience for that at 82

    Move it to South Florida. I would like a tax deductible trip to South Florida in January. Make it two weeks long. I'll stay two weeks and deduct it from my income. But I do not do snow.

    Kentucky is central to most companies/attendees.
    The location is massive
    And even at the size this disgusting gluttonry of demos by people who will never buy most of the stuff, it still didn’t consume all the space, there’s room for it to continue to grow!

    Despite the idiotic idea of charging $8 to park and creating the states larhest traffic jam for two days straight, I can’t thibk of a better place for that expo.
