    Is this just compensation for the size of the booth.....

    Yes, CB would appreciate it if in the future Apollo would spend an extra $10k-$20k on their booth so we can have a more luxurious space for the annual CB meet up (preferably with leather recliners). ;)

    I agree with gafftaper on this one. If Apollo is going to offer to sponsor a CB meetup, they should think of that first when planning their booth. We have certain needs and expectations and if they cannot support our rider requests... maybe we should find a new venue!


    All joking aside, it is truly gracious of them to 'host' us!

    I will bring this up to Crystal and Charlotte, being sure to emphasize that last bit!

    Joking aside, Joel has wanted to do blow up furniture for as long as I can remember. It just never happens for some reason.

    A friend of mine had a blow up Snap-On chair. We called it the rodeo chair because it had a habit of rolling over backwards as soon as you leaned back into it.

    Now you've done it!

    Joel asked me to go along and keep the crowd from becoming unruly. Well, maybe just excessively unruly... :D

    Hurray! Last minute change means I'll be there this year. I have a meeting at 1 on Saturday, but I'll make sure that I pop in.

    This 2 hour time difference is driving me nuts - looked clear but now I see I'm somewhere else at 2:30 CDT.

    I'm working an event (not part of LDI) at one of the strip hotels and it has been very funny seeing a bunch of random production guys just staying at the hotel walking through our event, commenting on stuff, haha. Maybe I can recruit some for load-out! I will stop by exhibit hall tomorrow.

    Ha! I flew out of C2 on Monday at McCarran! I have to say, I like how many power strips they've added under the seats in the waiting areas!
