Re: locked down threads...

Sorry but there's no axe to grind or hidden agenda. Just wanted to see the topic remain 'open'. As a result there have been many supporting comments for the show and constructive posts that followed. Bang on me if you like but there's usually a method to my madness and it's kind of worked. :D

Re: locked down threads...

One thing I will point out, Rick, is that car shows and consumer electronics shows have a much more broad based appeal to the general public. The Fred Hall Show has always been a great event, but even they, in current economic times have had a harder go of it. The ISE in the North just keeps losing ...

Pionts well made, Rick. There are shows that are thriving today and well supported as well. I've always loved the Bass-a-thon as well and developed a sincere appreciation for it. Up here the trend for the ISE isn't quite the same though.

Re: Trailer tire tread

Your tires might look great on one side but the blow out will happen where it's wearing, not where it's not. So, if you have any part of the tire that's below 2/32, it needs to be replaced. It's not like the wear will shift to where there is tread over time.

Is it just me, likely so, or does this rig just not sound very 'sporting'? Sure sounds like something a commercial fisherman might use and I've got no problem with that but to use something like this in a tournament just seems like you'd just be eliminating any and all skill.
