masters weekend

Posted: May 22, 2009 in work

For the second year in a row, I get the pleasure of spending my Memorial Day weekend at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, GA running an apparel booth at the Nautiques Masters Water Ski & Wakeboarding tournament.  It’s a pretty simple and enjoyable event in comparison with many of our other Threds events….except…this weekend is going to be the coldest, rainiest weekend in many years for the Masters event.  60’s all day with storms and showers everyday. 

Just like today.  Cool with showers.  Not too good for an outdoor event on a lakeside beach.  We brought about 500 t-shirts and 40 sweatshirts/jackets – and today we sold more sweatshirts than t-shirts.  Demand is high and inventory is LOW. 

Here’s a picture of the inside of our 10′ x 10′ booth.  Very cramped.  We only have room to put out about 1/2 of the stuff we brought.

And here’s a picture of a custom designed Lambourgini from the makers of Mona Vie – apparantly a very popular and profitable energy gel that’s a big hit in the wakeboarding scene.  Mona Vie also brought along a customized F-350 truck, their own tour bus, and there was an overhead fly-by from the private Mona Vie jet.  All this from drinkable energy gel??
