Default Florida Flywheelers Show

We attended the show Friday and Saturday for the first time. That orginization did a great job of putting together the show. I have also attended Portland once, this was far better. The folks running the show were quite friendly and laid back, not the control freaks that I have run into at other events. There were a good mix of tractors, engines, flea market, and food vendors. You had to walk a lot or drive your quad/ golf cart to see everything since the show was very large and they don't segregate display/vendor areas. I would have like to have seen more tractor movement and activities but it may have been difficult with the number of people and small vehicles there. All in all though they did a great job!

Hello Bill,

Thanks for the compliments. Everyone that volunteers to help run the show tries real hard to make it a enjoyable show but some times it can get a little difficult when your dealing with 25,000 to 30,000 people with in a four day period but we do the best we can. Have fun and we hope to see you next show season.

John
