    Some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints

    I am sure with Federated pulling out it was a big blow.
    Hamilton maybe the only one left. There were rumors of the Hamilton show people trying to get a Toronto show off the ground.
    Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut, that held its ground.

    The new Toronto show was pulled due to lack of major vendor support.

    I received notice that the Woodstock woodshow has been purchased by the Woodstock Ag Society. I got an entry form for the woodworking competition that will be held during the wood show this year, Sept 28 - 30th.

    So, it looks like Woodstock is still hanging in.

    Bad news about Kitchener though. I really enjoyed wandering through that one every year.

    Yes Woodstock is still going and at least this year they are sending out registrations
    maybe they can keep it going , I think it is getting tougher every year because of internet sales
    myself I have to see something working to see if it going to work for me
    but I have what I need and if the younger generation isn't buying yet it may be tough
    Some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints

    I heard it is no longer going because the husband died. Too bad. It was one of the better ones. As for Woodstock, the website is still the same for months. I know they are always slow to get the website up but a fellow I know said he emailed them with a question well over a month ago and never even got an aswer yet. The vendor list is a real hodgepodge.

    Bill was *not* Kathy's husband, just a very dear friend and business partner.

    Just an FYI.
