    This could go on and on LOL. Bottom line it's just once a year for most. I myself don't have time to go all these shows. I wish I could just don't have the time. I have a regular commpany to run and the Haunt stuff is just fun for me. Either way I think everyone puts 100% into making the show they best they can for everyone. Shane and it's making the best of it!

    This was our second year attending, we enjoyed the show so much more this year than last, and we really enjoyed last years show.

    As a pretty good home haunt, I like most people on Thursday & Friday talked with numerous vendors about their products and what they do and dont do, this year I made notes about what I want to buy and what I dont need (right now). I bought some cash-n-carry, but mostly ordered even the small items (TSA doesnt really care even a 4oz makeup bottle needs to be checked) the show floor is fantastic and to be honest my only real complaint and the one I heard from numerous people was that the floor show needs to be open longer, till 6:00 or 7:00?

    The seminars; regardless of the level you are at this is a small comunitty and people talk, last year I was warned that the seminars are hit or miss not much in between, well I went to one last year about getting into the haunt industry it was a good seminar very informative and this year it was free. Also last year I went to another seminar with my wife and it was so bad I felt like I wasted an hour of my life and trade show floor time. The two seminars we attended this year were very good, but we were very selective in choosing to do any.

    IHH; good to see how vendors showcase their material in a different setting, the actors this year were new (to me at least) and I really want to walk through it to see if I missed a product rather than have someone jump out, people then focus on the person not the product, imho.

    The after hours activities; many parties and events to go to or not go to? Whatever each person wants to do is up to them, I can say if the show was open longer I would be at the show. I go to the show for the oportunitty to talk with numerous vendors, learn about their products and make informed buying decisions, this year I learned so much more than last year. The after hours events we went to were fun and a great experience we met and talked with home haunters to international haunters and numerous business owners, much more about networking after hours for us this year.

    Just a small timers take ;-)

    Thankfully it snowed this weekend and not the weekend of the show. This is totally odd its normally around 70 degrees by now!

    This is the coldest March ever.

    It's global warming? Got in a conversation today with a tree huger and the said that it was cold because of global warming. I had to tell him that the worlds temp (this is average temp for the world) has been down for the last three years. Heis only reply was its because of Obama. I want to know where you get what he is on. How's that global warming down in St. Louis Larry.

    Actually a result of global warming does equal more snow storms in certain regions, much more moisture in the air.

    DW I was talking about the temps. Average temp for the whole world is Down over the last 3 years and the temps for march have been on average for the US down 15 degrees. Stop using Al Gore math and look at the facts and experts that are not getting paid to come up with conclusions to suport he polices of groups that benifit in research grants. If we want to stop CO2 emissions then we need to stop beating up on ourself and go after China who produces more CO2p gases a month than the US per year. I learned how to read in grade school and don't believe any thing untill I check the facts for my self. Just like the goverment keeps talking about we need more taxes to pay the deficit down but the US will take in more funds in taxes than ever in history this year even if we don't raise the taxes. WHY? Stop spending so much. Also if it were not for the temps we would be talking about rain not snow.

    So you check the facts yourself before believing? So you did the research to confirm global warning and Al Gore and the many scientists who do study the facts have reported are all wrong, based on your personal research? Are the increase in tornados in the south and hurricanes out east just a coincidence? It's not a democrat or republic issue about global warming its obvious the climate is more turbulent these days.

    I am not a republican, I am a person who deals with places outside the US and right now the talk in Europe is another mini ice age in the next 100 years. National Geographic will be doing a series of shows this summer on it. The biggest issue is that the world getting warmer is not half as bad as it getting colder. If we lose a 3 degree average in the US we would be unable to produce enough food to support ourselves, we can over come heat but not cold with technology. There have been 5 studies covering this out of Europe over the last 4 years and it has the governments over there very concerned. If you would like I can send you links to the studies and my synopsis of the NG broadcast media package we are currently working on for them. This is not crack pot political stuff, it is good hard research done without influence from companies or university personal gains. You may have heard that there is a big movement in the Green Peace group about going away from and distancing themselves from the global warming stance. The Media in the US does not cover a lot of things that you can read in Europe. If we really wanted to do some good for the environment then we should start with the worst abusers like Mexico, South America, India and China. I was just like alot of Americans a 20 years ago before I got a different view from traveling abroad. I was not trying to be critical, but our press here in the US seems to have their own agenda now days.

    Just a side note there is a reason that Al Gores own party won't stand with him on this subject. If you fact check his research most of the global warming experts won't side with Gore. He is just media grabbing. This is not what this tread was here for so that will be last I post on this subject.
