Over this past weekend, Dad and I had our very first authentic trade show here in Helena, MT with the Great Rockies Sports Show. First and foremost, I want to give a big shout out to all that made it down and visited our booth to talk some Jiggin’.
We have done some smaller trade shows in the past, but not the volume of this one. It was very fun to interact and receive feedback from all of our wonderful customers and hear stories from the water. To be completely honest, I almost felt overwhelmed by the positive response and warm embraces to Kit’s Tackle.
And, while on a sensitive note, it sure was nice to have dad beside me interacting and sharing stories with folks. There is a certain aspect of this whole thing that really hits home being a father and son team. As exciting as the three day show was for us, all good things must come to an end…or not.
We actually leave tomorrow for the Great Rockies Sports show in Billings this Friday through Sunday (11th-13th) to share stories and adventures with a whole new crowd of folks. We have a very attention-grabbing and exciting display worth taking a gander.
We are highlighting our “Yellow Perch” Glass Minnows and have them fooling people all day long in their thirty gallon fish tank. We have them set up and swimming like crazy to show their true realistic properties…and of course how effective they are!!!
We sure hope you can make it down to share a few stories or laughs with us. We will also be giving a jigging clinic all three days of the show which will be full of tips and some good ol’ stories from dad and I’s adventuresJ
With all the frustrations that come with trying to grow a small business, there sure are some pleasant surprises that make it so rewarding. All your kind words this past weekend, the friends we met and the excitement I saw in dads eyes working the booth with me was incredible!! So cheers to “Jiggin’ the Dream” and YOU Kit’s nation!!
Dad and I are looking very forward to seeing everybody this weekend in Billings!!
