My irks of the week... TWO pain in the tail complaints about NNL East.
Some clown sent me a very irate email that we ruined his life because NNL East is the same day as Carslile this year. He is going to tell all his friends never to come to our show again! Oh goodie. He also said that NNL East would FAIL because more people want to go to Carslile than a model car show!
We moved the show back a week this year since we otherwise would collide with Easter. Many people travel long distances and travel home on Sunday. Never mind that our normal annual date collides with the Englishtown show, which is much closer. Such is the need to take a date that the hall has available. Either that or no show at all.
I got a nasty phone call from someone upset that the Parsippany Holiday Inn doesn't offer a discount to NNL East attendees. Well we moved the show north FIVE FRIGGIN YEARS AGO. We have a host hotel near our new show site that we nearly fill. Everyone who stays there is helping defray the costs of our being able to offer a host hotel, and insures we can do so in the future.
The old hotel, under the old manager, continued to offer our discount without our participation. This year the new manager called me and wanted me to sign a contract. Um, no. So excuse me that I wouldn't guarantee them 25 rooms on my personal credit card that has no benefit to me or NNL East, just so you can stay there working against us!
I feel much better now!
