    Jim K of Turf Magazine has graciously offered their booth as a meeting point for Lawnsite Members. We are thinking that a noon time gathering at the Turf Magazine booth might be a start for helping members put faces to screen names. I would suggest that each day at noon, members plan on gathering there. If dinner plans or other gathering plans are made, we could leave the details there for late arrivers. Thanks, Jim!

    This sounds like a fun time. Maybe this will be the year I make it down there, since I've never been to this event before. Thanks Jim for offering your booth for a meeting site for Lawnsite members. :)

    Eric and the rest of you ... do try to make EXPO in Louisville. It's a great show -- with indoor and outdoor exhibits. Great chance to try out gear and meet others in the industry. (Just be prepared for very warm, humid weather).

    I go every year and continue to look forward to it! And it would be great to meet up at TURF's booth. Guess I better order some extra chairs.

    I went last year for the first time. It is great. I plan to be back again this year. By that time of the year its great to have a long weekend. You don't even feel guilty because its still work related. :D

    Count me in guys!

    I'd love to be there, I'll just have to figure out how to juggle things so I can make it. I just registered, so I'll plan on seeing you all there.

    With all the rain we had last yr., we weren't able to make it. This year we're gonna try again. We went back in '99, & had a great time. If you've never been there, GO. Set aside time in schedulle NOW to GO! You won't regret it. Tons of exhibitors, inside & out. Just be sure to bring a hat for outside to keep cool; back in 99 it about 'fricaissied' our brains out! Got to demo about every mower under the sun, which enabled me to choose which one to buy the next year.
    Also loved the backhoes & excavaters-diggin to China at the fairgrounds! Great stuff, & lots of freebies too. Don't miss it.

    Also, Jim is open to suggestions of what would make this more fun and more effective. Put your thinking caps on and let us know!
