tickets. The wonder wombat is disappointed not to get to roll in a
stack of entries :(.
Dean, Lisa, Jamie and Karen - congrats again.
I have emailed everyone off list.
And as to the show, here is my take if I was going, based on going a
few years ago.
The first days are best. There is too much to see it all well. Make
sure you walk the floor isle by isle methodically or you will miss
stuff. Then go back and 'see' what you want. Check out the talks
and lectures. And when I went us home roasters were basically the
low life and mostly put up with or at worst shunned. I rather hope
that has changed. My take was to go in with attitude, be strong with
my opinions, NOT capitulate because they were the 'professional', but
also don't take it too seriously. Enjoy it.
Oh, I will recommend two things. Make it by the Behmor booth to say
thanks and meet Joe. He is a GREAT guy. And if Versalabs is there
with their espresso machine, and are pulling shots, MAKE SURE YOU GET
ONE. I still remember my shot from there. Truly amazing.
OH, and of course, meet up with Tom and whoever of the SM gang is there.
And finally, try and 'team up'. In the same way the best part of
this list is talking back and forth with those you know, I enjoyed it
most doing that while there. It's a social event also.
