Many of us who will be at the show have and will continue to respond to this post. I realize it's not a list, per say, but it's a start.

Beef, ShawnnyB and I will be out sometime Friday afternoon. I plan on stopping by the Marcum booth to check out the new LX5. On the surface, are there any noticeable differences?

The main difference is the additional 500 watts and the better interference and seperation detail. On the surface it is still the same looking LX-5 unit as before... Stop by say hi... I will be there all three days in the booth.. Then I will also be out on the High Power Challenges.. I will be on Red and Gull this winter for those events..

Any idea if there's going to be any deals on Arctic Armor or Ice Armour suits?

I'll be there on Friday afternoon sometime and am looking to pick up one of the 2 suits.

The Arctic Armor suits -no. Last year the Ice Armor was on sale as they didn't move much due to the Arctic Armor suit. The Ice Armor was reduced quite a bit the last day from what I noticed as I worked there that day right across from one of the booths.

We will be at the show. Free Gloves and RFO hats while supply lasts. We are also participating in the Poker Run sponsored by IDI Gear. We are the largest stocking dealer of Arctic Armor in the Upper Midwest and will have all sizes and all colors in stock at the show from XS- XXXL.

Stop by and talk with TO, Matt, Katy and myself. If you haven't met all of us, we are the South Central Forum Sponsors.

We will also have Strikemaster re-conditioned augers and Nils Augers at the booth. Recieve a free 4 1/2" Nils hand auger ($89 value) with every Nils purchased.

See you at the show.

PS: We have also updated our web site and now have on-line ordering.

    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.
