Thumbs up It was great!

Well I am just dragging my butt out of bed. Felt good to get more then 1-2 hrs of sleep. The show was great as Ryan said. It looks like we had about 2500 people come threw the door this year. We had about a 45% increase in table booking over last year. I did talk to a lot of breeders to see what they thought and to some sales were down but with 25 more tables booked means more animals, so over all things were good.
I would like thank everyone that signed the cards for me and Bonnie. Damn near brought a tear to my eye. Along with all the sponsors.
In the first 15 min 126 people came threw. It was quite a line up. There were a few last minute cancellations but others needed more room. I will post a table count later when I figure it out. I have some pics posted on the other site for people to look at. Have to finish unpacking everything and MUST get a pot of coffee in me.

It was a good show. Sales definiteyl weren't as good as I wanted for me, but the show, the planning, and the building were great. Walter and Bonnie, once again did a great job.

Greg


Nice to meet you McPatch, no one else from the forum stopped by though. Maybe i'll meet more of you in Calgary

Didn't get a chance to have a good look at your terrariums, Greg - but from what I seen and heard they looked great. I'll make sure to stop at the TARAS show.

I have to thank everyone that helped out. I am sorry for Jaylyn. She was helping run the mane door and every time she was going to look around our little one (Stephanie) decided to act up. SO I am very sorry that Jaylyn had to stay and collect money from people all day. Hope you see what you might have missed at the TARAS show. It will be a big one.
WALTER

I was only there for about an hour or so, but what I was there for was a wonderful show And thanks Walter for the snow corn... I envy whoever ended up with the male... wish I'd taken them both now. Ahh, the price of being tired and rushed.
