"Maybe try Roy Hall?"
I tried twice but with no response either way. Same thing with VPI and Basis and a couple of others. I even suggested, in an email, that they could perhaps have a rep or one of their dealers attend if not too far away. Unfortunately, with no response it was difficult to negotiate any further. :)
I imagine they have their own good reasons not to attend or respond back to someone that is trying to help promote their product line. I find it difficult to understand when a manufacturer has an opportunity to have an audience with several hundred people highly interested in their product that they don't have some interest to try and have a presence at some level. I know these shows have expenses for them and it takes manpower but a live audience to see, feel, and hear your products just seems to good to pass up to me. I guess I don't quite get it. Perhaps we are not large enough and I do understand that, but the courtesy of no response at all....hmmmmm Oh well.
All the more reason that I applaud those who have been so generous in many ways in supporting ours and others events. I specifically refer to:
These are the people that help get small events to the next level and without them we would be nowhere. Thank you gentlemen.
"Hows (Who's) idea was that:) I think he should bring one...."
Ummm, I have no idea but he should probably be tar and feathered.
Actually, I would love to bring mine but it is a Micro Seiki with the suction pump. A little complex and with too much involved to tear down and set up while trying to also make sure everything else is going smoothly for the event. If I weren't the organizer I would be happy to bring it.
