I got home from the show LATE Sunday Night, to find half of So Cal on fire, and many of my family friends being evacuated. The good news is that they have all been able to go back to their homes. I felt good knowing everyone was safe. Of course that can’t be said for so many people who are not able to go back to their houses or don’t even know if they have a house to go back to! The devastation and loss has left me speechless. How do you console someone who lost their house and now some people have lost their lives. It’s horrible. The good news is the weather will change, the fires will slow, and then the firefighters will be able to get in front of it all. There is, of course, hope.
In a day or two, I’ll be caught up a little at work, the heat will have decreased which will mean I can sleep well again, and once we get to that point, I will get some pics and info about what we did at the show.
For the moment, I’d just like to say we met so many great people. From famous national champion competitors to local modelers who just love the hobby, from great friends to hobby shop owners from all over the country who work every day to bring you the items you need when you’re pursuing this great hobby, we talked to a LOT of people about all of the products we showed.
They all clearly showed us what products were hot, what products they liked or didn’t, and shared with us their latest projects.
So, please let me get up some posts and fun stuff in the next day or two and then please, if you have any comments, questions, etc. send me some comments!
The Chicago Ihobbyexpo show this year was the best experience at this show we’ve had in a long time. A great event for me personally AND for Global/Airtronics!
To all of your modelers, enthusiasts, and hobby shops, thank you for coming to see us! We really enjoyed talking about the hobby with you!
