CGOAMN at the 2012 Minneapolis Boat Show?
« on: November 28, 2011, 07:45:05 PM »
Greetings friends,

I'm happy to tell you about a 1st time opportunity for our club.  I have been offered space in Lobby B of the minneapolis Convention center during the January 19-21st annual boat show.

At this point I need to get back to the event planner to let her know if we would like to take her up on the offer of space.   I haven't done any research as to where Lobby B is, but maybe someone could dig up a facility map.

I'm thinking that 3-4 boats and some high quality Public Relations material would be perfect.

Is anyone interested???  Are there cantidates for the show that would be willing to bring their boats to Minneapolis in January?  There are many fine cantidates for the show, so please let me know asap if you might be interested.  If we decide that we want to be involved, we would need to make a strong presence at the show with our members as well.  It would be ideal if we could have at least 2 members present at all times throughout.

THOUGHTS???  It's up to you!  (As a side note, this might be a good "foot in the door" for bigger things.  Please think BIG picture for the welfare of the club rather than just about this one event alone.)

This is very cool!  I would make the trip back up to see the boat show, specially if you are going to have a booth there.  I would gladly donate my time to man the booth let alone make up any stickers or pamphlets to hand out.  Another shirt maybe?  There are so many great boats in the club, would love to volunteer a few but that is hardly my place.

I'll man the booth for a day or two.
Don't think my CV would be a good choose to display though ...

I also would help in participation of manning to booth.

Thinking of boats I know most people have them winterized and put away.

But here is a few that could qualify as show examples

Jason Smith cv16ss
Dave P v153 Ya i know Dave its way down south
Scott E cvx20 jet we would have to get the interior back in
Kips cvx18
Shaun P cv16ss
Steve A cv16
Mike B cv27

I would not mind showing either one my boat. But it's all going to depend on how much snow we will have and if I can get to the garage to get them out. Last year would not have worked but so far this year is dry.

I can do man the booth for a day or two.

Do you know if they will have a spot their to wash off the boats after dragging them down there?

I too would be willing to man the booth, but the question is can we make a committment for two to three boats now not knowing the weather conditions at the time of the boat show mid to late January of 2012?

Jeff's CVX 18 is another top candidate for the show.

My boat is just south of Northfield in a pole barn and I have no idea if other boats are in front of it. Best if I did not commit my boat.

Toni and I would be happy to man the booth and as an added bonus my son could do the shirts as that is his business, he would supply all the shirts and upfront money and share the profits with the club. Tom

Jeffs boat is in the Glastron cave along with mine. Maybe i'll just have to try and keep the yard plowed.

Jason's and Jeff's boats, both in pristine condition, are worthy show pieces. It would have been nice to have a Glastron with a classic outboard motor on it too.

I told Tim (still fishin) that Jeff and I would come over and buff, polish and shine his CVX18 if he put it in the show ...
He liked the idea until I told him we could let people ... and kids sit in his boat for photo shoots ...
Guess I shouldn't have told him that part ... LOL

Pretty sure theres a place by venders enterance with water/hoses to wash boats, trailers.

I know from talking with Scott from Tanners S&C that it's a huge deal for dealers with boats & yacht, displays, etc, etc ...
I think we would need more then a few guys to get every thing done with two or three boats.

I can help out as well. I can help clean, prep, man the booth what ever to help. I have both my boats in Osceola they were the last into the shed but not sure if it gets plowed so there is access to them in the winter. Let me know and I can find out. I would have some work to do on mine as well to be showroom condition. Just New carpet and a little more buffing. O and my trailer really needs to be sand blasted and painted. All could be done would just need to know soon.
I think this has become an addiction.

Ok...  So we have a good response for people to be in attendance at the show...  I would like to move forward, but I feel like we need to be able to commit a few boats.  The Silver Fox would have been there, but that's not very possible now...  :(

Is anyone willing to try to get a commitment from 3-4 boat owners in the club?   I think that we would have to send some e-mails and make some phone calls.  Sure would love to have a CV-27 there!!!

I want to get back to the event planner ASAP, but It would be a pretty boring booth is it was just a bunch of guys standing around!  :)

Anyone interested in drumming up the boats?

I'll gladly help man a booth, clean boats or whatever, we can put my boat in but I don't think that a V-184 is a good eye catcher.

Shawn we got 2 snow blowers now we can get your CV-16 out of there if we need to.  It might hamper brewing for a while though.

I will commit to to getting my CV16SS to the show one way or another and plan on being at the show for at least one full day and maybe another evening.

Would be really nice to get a jet at the show. Tom V, if you can get the CV19SS at the show we could even throw a for sale sign on it.

Outstanding Brian! Very cool. Way to go for signing up Jason, your boat deserves to be there anyway.

What 3 or 4 boats would be most appropriate? Hmm. Reckon ya could sit here all day and argue over that.

I'd say blind side 'em with CVs & CVXs ...?

I'm in.  Would gladly bring my (newly transformed) '77 CVX20 jet down there.  Just have to put the insides back together - Jim & I are scheming on that.  Would gladly work the booth too.

Will be a shame to not see Dave P's boat there, I wasn't around 40 yrs ago but I have to imagine his boat looks the same as the day he got it.
