Rules For Attending A Show


| January/February 2001

I was inspired to write these rules for attending a show after experiencing a little unpleasantness at several shows through the years, including our own.

They are not aimed at any particular person; they were done all in fun. I read them at our last club meeting and our members seemed to enjoy them. (I heard that October is National Sarcasm Month!)

How to attend an engine show (as a spectator, exhibitor or member)

1.  As a spectator, complain at the gate about the cost of admission even go on to list all the other activities that you could enjoy for a whole day at $3.00.

2.  Go to the show with a 'chip' on your shoulder; be determined not to like any part of it, even if you've just won the lottery!

3.  Don't be friendly, smile or look happy. Someone might tell you about their engines/toys and they might have more or better ones than you.
