Good times at Summer OR 2011 on 08/09/2011 23:13:55 MDT Print View

I got a job back in March with the Outdoor Industry Association working in membership after working for Golite for awhile. The Outdoor Retailer shows are our 'super bowl' events so it was a busy time for me in the membership department, running around signing up new members and meeting existing members. I've been on these forums for years and being a gear junky it was like being in gear heaven!! I didn't get a chance to really look at gear or post during the week but, here are some pics of my adventure at OR and the people I met.

Thanks! I wish I could have done more reviews or gotten more pics for you guys but, I was so busy running around. Most of these shots were taken during Happy Hour, which seemed to start at 4 pm sharp at the show..

no OR 2011 coverage by BPL? on 08/12/2011 11:48:01 MDT Print View

Are we getting any info on the summer 2011 Outdoor Retailer show from BPL? I don't usually read the weekly emails from BPL so maybe they said it's coming up, but I'm used to seeing it show up real-time on the days of the show (which was over on the 7th). Anybody know? I see by your pictures that Will and Mike were there, so hopefully we will eventually see some info. I'm hoping that the hard financial times at BPL aren't preventing them doing any sort of coverage on this event.
