November 2019

Dear Friends:

If it is November, it must mean time for the venerable BDNY trade show. This year it is Sunday, November 10 and Monday the 11th at New York’s Jacob Javits Convention Center. We’re in booth 4044; please come by and see our new offerings and meet the people you speak with on the phone. We’re excited to meet you!

Our newest catalog will be going to the printer shortly and mail January 6, 2020, so keep your eye out for it. We are keen to present lots of new products and innovations. We think you will be pleased, too. Unfortunately we are forced to pass on a small 4% increase, but will honor current pricing until February 1, 2020.

La Carrera Panamericana 2019 was nothing to write home about. Out of the starting gate the driveshaft broke. Goodbye Day One. Day Two the engine blew. Goodbye Day Two! But Days Three to Seven were “okay”, we rallied and scored and came back strong. At the end we were 14th (out of 75 starters) and 5th in Class. As Winston Churchill said to the British people in the depths of WWII, “Never give in, never, never – never …” And we didn’t. Losers never win and winners never quit.
