NBBQA Convention in Austin
 
I had registered for the trade show today. Make the drive up from SA this morning and get there at 10:30. The trade show was scheduled from 8 to 3. All the exhibitors had already shut down. I was not a happy camper.

They did give me a free membership in the NBBQA but I was pretty disappointed. Kind of an FU to the backyard enthusiasts.

Iwas looking for you during breaks. I'd be writing a polite but firm letter.

I did have a chat with Tom, I think that was his name. That is when he offered the free NBBQA membership or at least discounted because I don't know if that means they are still refunding my $35.

There were 4 people ahead of me that were walk-ins that were wanting to attend.

If you are going to invite the backyard enthusiast, then you need to have something on Saturday. And if you are going to advertise something, then you need to deliver.

If the trade show was that small room, I don't know if that was worth $35 anyway.
