corey - any pre-pics of that PS214v w/the 6.2L and red flake? Sounds like a sweet rig.

We're ok with marked bills as long as you go to the bank to deposit them with us!

Sully, should be an awesome show! We're still waiting to confirm the list but sounds like Rusty Malinoski will be on hand.

Any slalom god appearances?

Just found out that Rusty will not be at the show, apparently he has a photo shoot with Fox Racing. Hyperlite is still sending someone but not sure who yet.

In the slalom department we're hoping for Chris Sullivan, but RADAR/RONIX is not sure who. Bumping the show back a week really messes up our normal routine (plus I will miss the Super Bowl). We do have the Connelly factory rep making appearances all week, that's set in stone.

Eric is a super nice guy, seems like he is at our boat show more than anyone (being from the midwest prolly helps).

This X-25 is in transit and will be getting a pretty cool wrap installed for the show!

Had a great time at the show today. Sorry no pics. Midwest Mastercraft had a great display and a busy pro shop.

The new XStar looked phenomenal as did the X10. Midwest Mastercraft had all nice stuff supported by kind, helpful and knowledgeable people.

I think Mastercraft is putting out awesome products and while the wife preferred the X10 our son and me thought the X14 would fit our family the best. That said, one could argue the 197 was the sexiest boat at the show. I do know I will always be shopping in the used market.

I don't know about overall quality but Bryant had some timeless looking products. Great lines clean looks.

This was cool...almost bought Radar Senate C and then wife said...I suppose you could get that ski or we could discuss getting Perfect Pass. Looks like I'll be skiing on my current Radar Theory for another year. Woo hoo!!

We're finally putting the store back together. Thanks to everyone that came out, overall the show was awesome. There are going to be a good amount of new (and some used) MasterCraft's hitting MN lakes and rivers this summer.

Fantastic display as always Corey........far superior to any of the competition. Midwest Mastercraft had the nicest display in the show, and staffed like no other as well.

Same goes with the MC quality. Bu was across the aisle and it was enlightening to be able to walk back and forth between the 197 and whatever bu calls their slalom boat. Only several thousand dollars separates these boats on the sticker, but a night and day different in the visible quality.

We noticed the same thing at The Toronto Boat Show. The other Manufacturers are trying but MasterCraft is still way ahead in all areas. There were always more people at the MasterCraft Booth than at the other want to be Booths.

Great efforts really pay off at these shows. Anyone who has ever done a show like this can really appreciate all the efforts Midwest Mastercraft, and from the sounds of it the Toronto Mastercraft dealer, put out. Here's to a job well done :toast:

By far Midwest MC had the best display out there. And man were they moving some merchandise too, congrats to them on the good show. Takes a lot of effort, it doesn't go unnoticed.
