Well, unless another dealership takes ski boats to the Cleveland boat show, there may not be any ski boats to view at the show this year. My local dealer, Boat House Marine at TriLakes is not making the trip this year.

In lieu of going to the boat show, they are having an open-house at the dealership. I stopped by there the other day to pick up my prop. They have an X-10 which should be there already and a new X-Star that will be there in another week or so.

I grabbed the open house flier to post here.....but I can't find it at the moment. When I find it I will post it here so you can see the information.

The downside to this is they are not going to be at the show. However the upside is, if you go to the open house, there will be a lot more MC's to view. I think they will have between 6 or 8 boats to see for the open house. I'll get the list of what they are going to have on display and post it here.

I think this is great. After skipping the boat show for about 8-9 years, I was pretty disappointed by it last year.

It'd be really cool if James could invite a few accessory dealers, MC reps etc. to join the fun.

Actually, maybe we should set up an after hours or evening get together that Saturday the 19th with all the TT members that come to the area for the BHM open house. I will throw my house out as an option. We can hang in the basement and look at my MC posters I just got :rolleyes: or sit in the heated garage inside the PS205. That will be one Direct Drive boat that can be viewed that day. :D

I am all for a get-together, so just keep me posted on what works and where.
Another upside to not having to go to the Cleveland Boat Show is you do not have to pay to park, pay for admission and then trek across the frozen tundra of a parking lot!!!

See you all in January!

Our MC dealer in the greater Detroit area has been skipping the boat show in Detroit show for years. Action Water Sports hasn't attended one in several years and has instead been doing the open house program. I was told the expense of having a spot in the Detroit show has gotten out of control thanks to our Union Brothers and just wasn't worth the time, effort and expense to recoup the cost. They've been doing the smaller spring show in Novi which has really gotten to the point of challenging the size of the Detroit show.

Sad to say but the cost to drive to Detroit, pay for parking, pay to get in, then lunch or dinner in Detroit has gotten to the point where we don't go anymore. The spring Novi show is cheaper, has all the ski boats companies represented and best of all is not in Detroit.

My dad is retiring this year and mom is throwing a dinner on the 19th. I'll be there earlier though.

Works for me, at this point. Like I said before, always welcome to stop at Casa De Ballinger.

As for the board shorts, make sure their the red white and blue ones! :rolleyes:

Im in to meet up that Saturday as well. I think Double D is right, we should all try and do something into the evening as well... It would been fun to socialize with all the fellow MC'ers again.

Since Big Foot has been known to be sighted in West Branch State Park you may not have to make any decisions at all. BHM during the day then Big Foot hunting at night. And all within a few minutes drive from each other.

I often wondered if Big Foot was some kind of "mammal" barefooter .... Big feet, kind of an advantage right?

Still love the old Mitch Hedburg skit when he says "the problem with Bigfoot is that he is actually blurry"

Peace.

I will be missing the Big Foot event and the Buckeye Bashers' meet n greet at BHM on Saturday, but I will sneak up there Friday after work (since I work in Kent). I have been tagged as an alternate for the annual "boys weekend in Vegas" so, yours truly will be jetting off with 9 other guys to sin city for a few days of entertainment:0. I'll check out the boats at Boulder Boats on my way back from the "dam" tour while I'm out there.

To bad Z, I am also hitting the Vegas strip but mine starts on the 22nd to the 25th.

I attended the Boat House Marine open house and boat show yesterday and had a great time. James and Chris put together a great showroom and display.
I spent the afternoon hanging out with fellow TT members, looking at boats and talking about our prized possessions.
Most boat shows charge you to park, charge you to enter and charge you to eat; At BHM parking was free, entrance was free and pizza, cookies and drinks were aaaaaaaa FREE!


Thanks to James, Chris and the BHM staff for a great day.

Great time seeing everyone! Some sweet boats at BHM ... I know some other dealers are doing the same thing and I must admit the Open House idea is a good one. There was a great turnout and many boats to hang out around and in.

I congratulate Tri-Lakes for pulling it off, it looks like it was worth their time.

I have a 214DD ... but everytime I look at the 214V it grows on me a bit.

IF you have not seen a X25 / X30 / X10 or X-Star in person, your missing out. Sweet boats!

Peace to all it was great to see everyone, thanks for the Akron hospitality.

sorry to hijack your thread, but I feel the same way. We are seriously considering making the switch from the 214DD to the x14V. The storage is sooo much better than our DD.
