Expo Update

Spent the day in Winston-Salem visiting the Benton Convention Center again. We have set out the floor plan and have included a casting lane this year.


I also spent some time touring the main hotels and have to say they are very elegantly appointed and well equipped with about every amenity you can imagine.  Great restaurants, pools, spas, workout rooms, valet parking, etc.


Much more to report, but I’ll save it for later this week when I have time to write a more detailed account of the many new and exciting things that will be a part of Expo 2013.

    There are still some saying that rods were stolen from the Expo event.

    No such thing has ever happened. This is just a rumor that has been repeated so often that a few have taken it for the truth. It’s not.

    One company shipped some rods back via UPS – they never arrived. But they were not stolen at nor from the Expo. They were boxed and on the dock after the Expo had closed, awaiting UPS pickup. What happens to a shipment after it leaves the Expo can’t be blamed on the Expo. Our record in that regard is clear – no custom rods have ever been stolen from the Expo.
