This was the worst show that I have ever been. Only about a dozen or so vendors. three of them was Ronix, Hyperlite, and Liquid Force. The show was only a third of the size of last year. The worst part of the whole show was, get ready sit down and hold on, Moomba and Supra were not there. I was reaaly disappointed.

Tazz,

Sorry no Moomba or Supra Dealer. Island, our previous dealer, choose to exit the market. Great people, just not great success. Anyway, this happened in November and we are still trying to find the right match for the market. But it will be soon.

You'll be seeing that the rest of this year and probably next year too and this recession will seperate the well managed companies from those flying from the seat of their pants. I imagine the volume of sales doesn't warrent having much of a presence at these shows considering the costs and survival isn't about lookers but about buyers.

I understand. It just I am so proud of my Moomba. I would have loved to see them at the show. I did get to see them when the company was out here in Las Vegas over the summer. It was like I died and went to Moomba/Supra heaven. It really was a beautiful sight.

I've been getting MC emails for weeks. Not sure how they got my address. I'm sure they will be there. I can't believe SC wouldn't find a way to have a presence in Orlando.

HAHAHA I might just do that. The construction business came to a complete hault in Vegas. I need to let go of my employees at weeks end. I feel really bad that I need to do that. I guess that it comes with hte teritory with owning a business.
