Well what can I say but thank you all that came to the show either as a vendor or just someone who wanted to check it out. Bonnie and Myself do not need the credit, if it wasnít for everyone that helped out or set up a booth there would not have been a show.

I will have to agree with everyone that this was the best show ever and plans have already started for next year. With many new things to see, do and win. There were over 3500 people that went through the doors. It was on the news many times, the radio stations told me their phones would not stop ringing all day Saturday about the show.

I would love to see some pictures as well since I did not have the time to take my camera out of the bag. I really hope people had fun and if there is anything you would like to see different or improved on let me know. Mo and Greg you do not need to reply, lol. I should let every one know I did not feed these two because when ever I tried to say something at the show they reminded me of the two hecklers on the Muppets. They would have been fed sooner or later I just picked much later.

So now the challenge is on for next. I have to try and top this years show. All I can say is that is going to be a tough one.

I would also like to thank all the people that came from way out East.
Corey ( I hope you never had to pay for Danís meals while you were out here.)
Jon ( I love the hogs I got from you)
Jim ( Donít eat any more hotdogs )
Laura ( Hope the kids liked the toys)
Bruce ( It was a pleasure having to BS about spiders till 3am, Bonnie still wont let me put the bird eater I got from you in our bed room)
Norma ( I hope I got your name right. It was great meeting you and hope you get your banner done soon it is going to look great.)
Dominic ( It was great meeting you and hope to see you next year.)
The whole Manitoba crew. Sorry canít remember all the names glad nothing got out this year, lol. It was great meeting you all.

I hope to see everyone there again next year. I would love to do a 3-4 day show so I can chat with everyone a bit more and see all the stuff people are working with.

Sure Walt thank everyone form back east and don't mention the BC people. It's not that I need to be mentioned I would have been happy with just a burger, but nooooo.............even the homeless guy got a burger. Not to mention that I helped setting up on friday.
The least you could do is feed me, I drove 11 hours I worked 10hours and no food.......I had to drive around red deer for 55 minutes to find food I was so hungry. So the moral of the story is when you go to the red deer show bring a lunch even if they promise to feed you.

I would like to extend a big thank-you to all the fine people I met at the show. As my first experience as a vendor, I was happy with the crowd turn-out, the questions and the sales. Both Laura and I managed to sell out all that we came to sell and we both took back a few pairs of MO's Boas.

Walter, Ryan and Sheila for your hospitality and efforts in getting me out to the show. But not forgetting the others, Mark Isbell, Katt and Vanan, Ken, Mo, Annette, Kyle, MaryV., Tim and many more.

And of course to Brandon, for making the effort to intercept the freight coming back. Thanks bud

The plane trip out was all worth it. Hope to see you folks next year!!!

Thanks again

DAMN MO!!!!, You got me, ok, LMAO. I will buy the steak and crab next time I am out. Yes you did help me with 90% of the set up on Friday. I know it is an 11hr drive but I know you did it a lot better then that, lol.
I will maybe try and make it up to you next time, we will see. As for bringing your own lunch you are fine unless you bug the crap out of me while I am trying to talk at the show or something like that. See Jeff Mcfadden and some others were smart and bugged me on Sunday instead. lol.
Yes I would like to thank all the people from BC, Manitoba, Sask and Alberta. I cant list all the names. So once again thank you all for attending the show.
