Tuesday we set up the open air demo up on Lake Jordanelle. Wedenesday we spent the day on the water. This gives the dealers opportunities to paddle our boats before they start talking about how many they are going to buy for you guys. The day at the lake was really nice until just before closing time and the wind came up. We had white caps on the lake. We could almost surf waves into the beach.
Salt Lake City is a big place and its an odd combination of urban and incredible beautiful sceneary. We are staying in a house we rented up on the side of the hills just above the town of Draper which is 20 minutes south of town. It gives us the chance to get away from the intense action downtown but we can head out and party if we need to.
The mostly consists of hanging out talking with folks about new products, and new programs but the really fun thing is the yearly reunion we have with people from the industry. Dan Gavere is across the hall working with Werner paddles, Rob Lesser is standing shooting the sh%& in our booth, Chris Spelius is trying to decide if the Stomper is the boat for him. Its a good time. This year the energy at the show is very high. People are starting to feel like there might be a the light at the end of the tunnel as far as the recession is concerned. And you all have asked them so much about our new boats that they are chomping at the bit to get them in their stores. The first question out of every dealers mouth is how long till we can the Stompers in house.
So I know you aren't that interested in all that lets get to the new products. Heres a video!
The show started yesterday and we will be talking the talk for a couple more days.
Here are a bunch of photos from setting up the booth and getting ready for the show.
