    I'd say your early but early is good. We had alot of early bookings for Buffalo but when push came to shove, only a handfull went. My dad and I will be going to Kentucky, were going to make it an annual gettaway for us.

    I really liked the show. My dad and I both thought it was worth the trip. It's nice to talk to other people with the same interests as you. Tom and Snoway sure put on a good party, it was worth the drive just for the beer and wings.

    It worth going to, we joined SIMA last year and went to the show this year in buffalo for the first time, Between the networking with other pros, the classes, and not to mention the giant trade show with everything snow. It was fun. They offer so many classes at the shows too, they really help you get a better handle on whats going on in the industry and how to increase you productivity and so much more. Go its worth it and it gives you a chance to get a way for a few days,plus you can take the whole things as a business expense!
