A Quick Look...

What appears below is just a quick hand-held video tour of the EXPO hall from this past Saturday morning. I apologize beforehand for any shakiness or quick movements as I made a quick pass around the west side of the hall. I also apologize to the vendors not included who were on the main aisle on the east side of the hall. There were too many people to negotiate and I was needed elsewhere.

This isn’t intended to be any sort of professional promotional video of the EXPO. Just a quick look at the floor, some of the exhibitors and builders on hand for those that have perhaps never attended the EXPO.

One of the guys from American Tackle is working up a longer video with some interviews and related items, and which features “image stabilization” for those that may get a little seasick watching this one. In the meantime, here you go-

Thanks for sharing a glimpse of the 2020 ICRBExpo for those of us unable to attend. It appears to have been another good show. Viewing the video was fine after a beer and Dramamine LOL.
