• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

Hotels for Nationals 2009

I copy/pasted this info from the binder bulletin -

happy new year!!!
It is a new year and all the IH shows are in the planning stages with many dates already set.

This year the IH nationals will be September 11, 12 &13, 2009 in springfield, ohio. This year the show celebrates its 20th year. Before leaving last years nationals I worked with the hampton for 2009 and we were able to keep our 80 plus rooms. Thank you to all that came to the show, made the bbq run smoothly, had lots of fun or helped in anyway possible. I have often said that the crew of an IH show is worth so much more than words are able to express, I am truly thankful to have such wonderful friends. I am posting the hotel information so that those of you that are coming are able to reserve your rooms online, which is much faster this way. The only thing is as of today we are under 70 rooms available so if you plan on coming, book your room asap. I also encourage you to visit john's web site midnitestar productions -- welcome Which will have all the up to date information about the show on it. We will again have the bbq in the parking lot, more information will be forth coming. If you need more information I will put the my email at the bottom of the page. Wishing you all the best for the new year and hoping to see you at the shows.
