Re: IMS Chicago?

I hope to make it Sunday morning, but I am not sure. Have to work from 6 AM to 7 PM tomorrow on a project, and am on-call Sunday. So its a rather slim chance. Hope you make it over through the lake effect snow.

Re: IMS Chicago?

I would too, if I was not on-call this weekend for the third year in a row.

Re: IMS Chicago?

Just got back home from the weekend, WOW that place was crowded, And they need a way bigger space with bigger isles, was hoping for a deal or two but not really anything, but you will have that. Met some new people and a guy who lives basically right down the road from me who was booked in room right next to us at hotel. Small world. Countryside had a spot but it was to small, you couldn't get in it and I am sure they lost some sales of stuff because of it. The only Olympia and BMW stuff there and you could not get in to look at it because of the set up and crowd.

Yes, it did become very crowded as the day went on. We always attend on Sunday morning at 9:00 and hit the vendors first as they become the most congested.

I am just glad that Countryside was there at all. It was the first time BMW was represented in several years.
