Kamloops and Closing out Canada

The Canada Road Show is wrapping up this week and season out west with stops in Calgary, Kamloops and Richmond. We’ll get some wrapping up thoughts from the team soon on this year’s quest. For now, some pretty pictures from the road.

Sympathy Pains in Saskatoon

The Canada Road Show truck had it’s own altercation this week when minivan bumped into it. Everyone’s OK, but between this and Goldie going down at the end of last week, it’s been a bad week to be a Road Show truck.

However, it’s been a great week for AV in Saskatoon, with plenty of people stopping by to check out Chief and Da-Lite solutions. Thanks to all who came to share feedback and learn about the latest AV products.

More Minnesota, and Goldie Troubles

The Road Show team finished out last week in Minnesota and headed to Illinois on the way to Missouri. However, Goldie Haulin, the Road Show Truck, decided she didn’t want to leave Illinois.

She got a bad case of diesel particle matter filter issues and got towed to a shop in Springfield on Saturday.

Road Show specialist, Tyrel, picked up a temporary rental truck and moved all the equipment to it on Sunday. This week, the team will be in St. Louis. Once Goldie is fixed, Tyrel will switch back next weekend.

“Lots of moving parts and lots of driving.  Just the way we like it,” said Tyrel.

In the meantime, some pics from the rest of the week in Minnesota, and a few of Goldie getting some attention.

Fridley, Minnesota, the place you wanna go ta

The AV Road Show pulled into Fridley, a northern suburb of Minneapolis, to roll out new solutions for over a dozen electrical and technology providers. Being electrical, they were particularly interested in the in-wall and above ceiling storage solutions on hand.

Minnesota Day 1 Part 1

The nice thing about the Road Show being near Milestone HQ is the opportunity for new people to get a chance to see how the show runs, and lots of pics.

Mostly the pics.

Thunder Bay and Winnipeg Week

The Canada Road Show was just over the lakes from the U.S. Road Show this week with stops in Thunder Bay and Winnipeg. The snow is starting to roll in as well, sad face. Good thing Goldie’s little sister is up for any road conditions.

Look for the Road Show next week in Saskatchewan. Wave if you see Goldie jr.!

Michigan and Wisconsin Weeks

The Road Show crew was crazy busy the past two weeks to send in many pics, so we waited for a bunch to pile up to post. They headed up Michigan and Wisconsin with about three stops a day.

Michigan included: Ann Arbor, Wixom, Brighton, Farmington Hills, Southfield, Troy, Saginaw, Byron Center, Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo.

Wisconsin included: Germantown, Brookfield, Milwaukee, Appleton and Green Bay.

Next week, the show is in Minnesota, with a stop at Milestone Headquarters mid week.
