I get the fact that every dollar counts... but park farther away and walk.  It would be for free

That $30 you stole wasn't compliments of the Oncenter.  It was stolen from the show promoter, who takes the time and effort to produce the show and bring it to Syracuse.  Either way I believe that karma will prevent any fish from being caught on those jigs you bought with that $30.  Funny how things work out sometimes....steal $30, and you'll pay $3000 in retribution, give $30 and you receive $3000 in rewards.  That's my experience anyways......

They should change the name to the " The Thorne Brothers Show "There were a lot of vendors there with displays  but nothing for sale, they said Thorne Brothers were selling their products,including Jason mitchell and Northland ,If they are going to do that they should add a few more check out registers, the line at Thorne brothers was impossible.It would of also been nice if they had some food vendors.I thought there were some good prices if you did your homework,I purchased a Himminbird 55  for $50.00 less then advertised with a $ 50.00 mail in rebate,$100.00 saving.I also got a magnum sled for $125.00 , regular price was $169.00.Next year they could leave out the PU trucks,pots and pans and bathroom vendors , I think when they can't fill the hall they drag these guys in.
I thought the hard side aluminum shanty's were sweet

I agree with more registers at Thorne Bros...good deals there but not worth waiting in line for $10 worth of jigs...

The best part was that all the retailers were offering there stuff at 50% off the last 3hours Sunday so that they wouldn't have to load the trucks......I got power augers, a flipover and a flasher for under $500 total  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

That is the case sometimes to get a deal at the end of the show.  I just didn't want to chance not getting the exact items I wanted though.  I'm sure there were some deals to be had at the end.

We parked a few blocks away for free. We got there Friday at 4:15. No one there yet. I had an extra ticket I gave to the first lucky guy who came through the door. Merry Christmas. ;D I believe in karma too.

I finally got there for the last couple of hours on Sunday.  For the record, the vendors seemed very willing to haggle on Sunday just before closing.  Although there would be no guarantee they have what you're looking for at that point.  I thought it was very well done, and the vendors I spoke with seemed to feel it was worth their time and effort to be there.  Picked up a nice pair of bibs at a much better price than I have seen elsewhere.  Only thing on my wishlist would be to have a Heritage stand with the full array of products at or below retail.  Definitely no complaints though, many thanks to the folks who worked so hard to put this event on for us!

   I really enjoyed the show. :) First time there.  Met a few fellow Ice shanty members,that I had not met before. I got several things there that I would not be able to buy in my area also.  Would have to order them or go an hour or better to get them. Enjoyed seminars but they could have them in a separate room but I'm sure that would cost more.   Parking and admission was not out of line for cost.  Go to a football game or hockey, or baseball game :o ouch!   Of course, I love anything about ice fishing! ;D ;)

Is it just me, or was the show better LAST year? Not as many booths (although Thorne Brothers and FISH 307 were bigger  with more product), no Christian Brothers Brandy give-a-ways, and two booths I always like to shop weren't there. Also, I didn't see the Iceshanty.com booth. Was there one? Disappointed for the 6 hour round trip, and expenses, price of gas being what it is. Got a few little bargains, but not up to last years quality of a show. I'm retired and every penny counts. Oh well, maybe next year will be better.

First time to the show for me. Thought it was pretty decent. Went Saturday only to return again sunday  ???.
Got a killer  :o deal on a new Otter from Kruger's, a bunch of Maki's, buckshot's and a new set of mittens for wifey. The only disappointment was 1) the line at Thorne Bros (that program needs repair for next year) and 2) not meeting any of you guys at the IS booth. I walked by several times saturday and the booth had been abondoned   ::)....well maybe not abondoned as much as left for a "minute" while shooting the s**t   :-\.
also would have been cool  if I could have joined the IS militia at the show.
Look forward to a bigger and better show next year and meeting some of you guys on the ice.

Who were the winners of the big raffles going on? Such as the big giveaway trip and the jiffy auger.

It was nice to see so many people at the show.  We enjoyed meeting everyone and look forward to an even bigger show next year. So a great thank You to all those that attended and to those that were unable to we sure hope  you can attend next year.   Affinity Events is doing an outstanding job.

The Thorne Bros line moved pretty fast, I went through 3 times.  Kept seeing more deals.  Finally figured out the Clam Expedition Hut, and I can get it up easy.   The hut, you know what I mean.   ;D ;D ;D

Sorry I missed you guy's RD, And RG. I heard you guys were the one's that manned the "Shanty" booth. Had I known ahead of time, I would have manned it on Sunday, since I was there most of the day regardless. Great deals went down on sunday also....plenty of haggling running rampant. I was one of those haggler's also! Got a bunch of jigs, and a great deal on an Arctic Armor suit! I'm stoked.

I didn't man the booth this year. I'm retired!

It was right next to Fish 307's "jig bar", so I was around for a while.

Thanks to Bean and RD for their time and efforts.

I was there all three days and met some of the IS crew which was a treat getting to talk about stuff. I didn't know there'd be a shortage of crew to man the booth or I'd have volunteered some time myself. It was a good show and worth my trip out there.

I was hoping to see Shane there too but missed due to unscheduled cramping problems from the new Chemo Program they got me on.

I'm already looking forward to next year. I did get the IDI Immersion suits I was looking for though, and while not quite the bargain I was hoping for I now have peace in mind for the folks who won't sink if they go through like my grandson, wife, myself, and friends.

i was just wondering if anyone else filled out a raffle for the oasis travel package at the show at the entrance.  If so, how many of you won?  I got a call saying i won a vacation package for 4.  just wondering if its a scam
