« Part 20: Harvest Festival wrap up Part 21 of The Shows series Part 22: The Sports show - day 2 »

After having to skip the biggest show of the year 2 weeks ago, I knew I couldn’t wait too long to get back to business. This one is the annual Black Hills Sports Show and Outdoor Expo. I have never done this show before. But it normally draws a very large crowd and the weather is supposed to be beautiful. I am hoping that the combination gets me some exposure and more importantly gets some orders.

This is my temporary home through Sunday afternoon

Thank goodness I am not near the food court. That causes excessive snacking and weight gain. I was a very late entry, so I don’t know if this is a good location or not. For those who do shows, you know that is very important as well. The few pieces you see are the survivors from the fire. Not a lot, but it sure beats nothing.

I will keep you posted and thanks for reading.

Monte,

Looks like a good sample of your work. You have gotten orders for pieces from the last show you did. Best of the draw on this.

Hope the security is up as well!
