    Instead of the same old trade show, why not create a big competition where many different skills are tested and it is organized in a competitive way.... I'm sure there are quite a few people on this site who think they can mow, trim, edge, prune, build, etc... faster and better than others.... I know this has probably been done on smaller scales elsewhere, but I think it would be interesting and a lot of fun for someone to hoist the trophy or gold medal for "Fastest Load Time of 5 cubic yards of mulch with a Skid Steer into a Dump Truck".... Could even make it a charity thing where a depressed area in need of a cosmetic face-lift gets a freebie from the competitiors....

    C'mon, who wouldn't rather have te LawnSite user title "Fastest Trimmer" versus "LawnSite Fanatic"?

    Sounds like an idea in the making
    but faster does not always mean better as you well know
