    Plowsite / Taconics 2 annual bbq for plowers and manufacturers

    Well, it's time to think about snow again, and what a better place than the <b> Taconics 2 annual bbq for Plowers and Manufacturers </b>. Last year was a great turnout for the first year. for those who didn't go, we had Curtis snowplow, boss plows, sno-way, hiniker, ice-o-way spreader, snowman snowplows, a bobcat with a snowblower, ledex snow pusher, magic salt, trailers, urethane edges, ford commercial truck dealer, snowplow parts, truck accesories,etc. It was a blast, got to meet a lot of the plowsite members, such as plowking35, diceman, john dimartino, BRL, chuck smith, his brother andy, john parker,miketek, etc. we plan to have this the first or second week of october. john parker will be hosting it at his shop again in poughkeepsie, ny.

    Mark you calenders now, John P will set the final date.

    Hope to see you there,



    Bryan

    I assume you'll be giving out free samples of Magic salt again this year? I encourage anyone who hasn't used it, to get a sample. Trying it out is what convinced me!

    If you are planning the 2nd week in October, that may be very do-able for me. My wife and new son Jack will be touring somewhere then, burning up the old diesel, to make room for some new stuff.:D

    John,

    You posted this on last year's thread from the BBQ. I think it might be helpful to add it to this thread as well.


    "The barbecue will be at my shop at 186 Cottage Street in Poughkeepsie, New York. We are about 1.5 hours north of NYC right along the Hudson river. Anyone interested in helping organizing our event call me at 845-485-4200. Any vendors interested in showing their equipment please contact me for details."

    I spoke with Jp via email, and we will be doing 2 urethane edge install demostrations, one in the am and one after lunch. We may even try one on the lot, and bump a curb or two. So if you are interested in how they install and how they work on gravel and curbs, be sure to attend.

    this will be on a weekend i would assume? cause if it is, i will organize the people of much fat and arrange for a group of whale men to come up, eat, and learn. BEWARE THE BEACHED WHALE MEN! i think i may only bring one. however i can pack away a nice chunk of food as well.

    Last time I checked a calendar October 13th was on a weekend!


    Geeeeezzzzzzzzzz how hard is it to check a calendar before opening mouth and inserting foot!!!!

    Then again if lawnboy calls his friends whale men, I guess he may not have much in the smarts department !!!! LOL
