Bill I agree w/ what you said, I'm going to Laconia for 2019, the Cade has changed. After seeing the debacle "block Party" I've had enough..we enjoyed the show on Canada St & that was gone @ the best part of the week.. Time to move on..
didn't care for the block party, we miss all the bikes going up & down on Canada St, we went on friday nite, but, skipped saturday nite.. Next year I'll skip the whole block party thing, not worth it to me & my crew..
went to the Expo today, the location is good, the vendors where plenty, the site itself is like walking through a park, it's very nice & a big improvement from the previous lot.. Hopefully more & more vendors will show-up every year & keep the Cade going for many years to come.
WC I agree, been retired for 7 1/2 yrs where did the time go, I packed it in early, but I'm still doing some "side jobs" I keep trying to get out & they keep dragin back in !! lol lol Hopefully I'll see you up there, we're @ the Studio this yr, are you staying there also?
TY Ameri Helper for firming this up, glad to hear that the Expo has moved, also the lower rent should help the vendors return & also keep the Cade going, best of luck to all you guy's n gal's your doing a great job!!!! We look forward to the Cade every year.. See you guy's soon..
Looking@ the Expo Map I see that the Expo is in a "Grass Field"; I thought that the new location was paved?? Maybe I'm wrong?? doe's anyone know for sure if the lot is paved or a cow pasture?? Could be a MUD HOLE!!! ???
Ed, your correct; stay focused on June, HD w/ work itself out of the red. this thread has created some activity on this sleeping board, it's good to see the board "come alive" again!! AMEN!!!! like the "old days" where is WC?? out pickin blueberries???
HD is closing the Kansas City plant & moving the small bike line to York Pa. laying off 900 people..in case you don't watch the news.. 450 new jobs w/ be created in York; thus making all operations under 1 BIG roof..
Christian, this sounds like a great new plan for the Expo, glad to hear some great changes are being made. I agree the rent on the Beach Rd. lot is just driving vendors out of the Cade. W/the rent so sky high it is rediculous to pay that kind of $$$ for a parking lot. I hope & trust that we'll ...
I heard about that, what a shame, that kind of stuff never happens around LGV.. we stop in there from time to time for lunch it's such a cool place, hopefully Jim heals up & gets back to normal. I certainly hope the "perp" aka moron is still sitting in jail...
