NQC 07: Best and worst
Smartest gimmick of the week, from Danny Jones’s blog:
I’m not quite sure who is responsible for this (either the Hoppers or Canaan Records), but they are making fans and friends for life: they have a small fleet of golf carts transporting patrons to and from Freedom Hall and the exhibit hall. Sure, it’s shameless promotion for their latest recording and single (”Waiting For My Ride”), but it’s a stroke of genius and both, especially the Hoppers, will reap rewards because of it.
Contender for “announcement you least want to hear if you eat at the exhibit hall vending area,” also from Danny, written yesterday:
Not long after the opening of the exhibit hall doors, an announcement blared throughout the building’s PA system…”No one will be allowed in the exhibit hall between 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Tuesday as the maintenance staff will be spraying for flies.”
Read that again.
Spraying for flies.
OK, I give. I realize that the Kentucky Fair & Expo Center hosts several events each year that feature horses and other livestock. I also realize that most of the loading dock doors for this year’s NQC face some of the horse barns that are on the facility’s grounds.
But spraying for flies? During an event?
Icka. Guess I better bring some OFF … and my own snacks.Email this Post
