Milwaukee Sport Show

While we didn’t exhibit at the Milwaukee Sport Show this year we did still get to visit it.  After a day at Canoecopia we traveled to Milwaukee to see some of our friends at the Show.  We used to do what they call the Sport Show Circuit each winter, 7-10 shows of a week to 10 days each.  The same business owners traveled from city to city almost like gypsies.  We’d say goodbye in Kansas City and see them again in Indianapolis.  We’d visit during the day, dine out at night and really get to know these people during the long days at the Sport Shows.  Of course as resort owners none of us have time to keep up with each other during the summer, so we would wait to see each other at the shows.  This was the first year we didn’t do any shows since we bought Voyageur in 1993.  It’s hard not to see these people and sad not to be able to spend time with them.  We were lucky to be able to see some of them at the show and will have to try and reconnect with the others we missed some other time.  Josh enjoyed himself at the dog show, lumberjack show, and fishing at the Trout Pond.
