The Road Show in Tennessee

The Road Show team returned after a week off to hit the streets of Tennessee with solutions from Chief, Da-Lite and Vaddio. Stops included Memphis and Nashville. Pics from the road!

Lobsters, and Parking and Goats… Oh My!

What a great kick off to a week in Eastern Canada for our Annual Road Show. Mike Snizinsky hosted myself and Rhen Taylor, Senior Product Manager Da-Lite, in Halifax for Monday and Tuesday of this week. Set up went well, but very warm. The humidity was a kind and gentle 94% on Sunday evening for our setup. This prompted Rhen to rework the Halifax city motto to Liberté, Égalité, Humidité.

We had visits from Backman Vidcomm, Basil AV, Graybar, 3D Datacom, Vistacare, and Think Imaging. Thanks for the great visits! Always fun to hear about the projects going on across the country.

We had a bit of time to head over to The Citadel, though it was closed. It was a great hill walk, and view of the city. Cruise ships coming into harbor and all of the new construction happening in downtown Halifax.

Rhen scored a Halifax Hattrick on this trip, having the local lobster for all three meals, this was quite a feat.

Our Road Show truck and trailer had some adventures this trip as well, we thought our first parking lot was quite a way from the hotel, until the parking authority called and asked us to move due to a private event being held in the lot. We found a Rona/Shopper’s Drug Mart about 10kms from the hotel, only took me 2.5 hours, where they were comfortable to stay for the afternoon, THANKS to them, even if they didn’t realize we visited.

And finally, our lunch/sometimes dinner spot was right beside the hotel. The staff were great, thank Anthony & Lindsay! The food was great, with many kinds of Mac N’ Cheese. Even their custom bar top had Da-Lite bowties embedded in it. The Rusty/Roasted/Stubborn Goat. (Mike’s short term memory isn’t what it used to be).

We started out bright and early this morning for Quebec City… should be a full day drive. Good-bye Halifax, we’ll miss your narrow roads (not really), and your lobster.
