The 2010 Alaska State Fair is almost a memory, albeit a wet one. Two more days and it is over.
Alaskans are a hardy breed, I can tell you that. They come to the fair no matter how cold and wet it is. They wait patiently in line for performances where they will have to sit in wet cold chairs with rain pouring (although the hosts were wiping the chairs with a shamwow last night, which was cool)
They are wet through and through yet they walk through the grounds like there is nothing to it. You don't hear any complaining either, they are more likely to say "Its Alaska, It Rains, It's Cold, It gets dark, get over it." Try that in California.
Having our booth here gives us an opportunity to visit with past customers which is great. Some go back over 20 years. It also gives us an opportunity to speak with new customers who will be building in the next 20 years.
Come see us at the Fair, we'll be there until closing on Monday, then it's back to the real world.
