Just curious who's going to Surf Expo in Orlando? Maybe we can all get together at the industry party. They are usually a wild time. If I can still get in that is...

Tom Bugg

I'll be there roaming the show for Ten-80. Come by the booth and see if I'm there, if not, it means I'm off bugging some shop owners about carrying Ten-80. Hear that shop owners! You better come by and see me!
Ok, sorry for the mass sponsor plug, but they were cool enough to get me in the show.
Unfortunately I'll probably only be able to be there Saturday, since I have to drive there, 10hrs.

Should we set up some dinner or drinks so everybody can meet. Or maybe we can meet at OWC. Any other ideas?

I think there should be some kind of "1st Timer Orientation", or something! Sounds like there are quite a few who have never been there before...
We are coming in on Thursday afternoon (would have come earlier if we had known that there was more "stuff" than just the show!) and leaving Monday morning at 11:00.
Would love to meet up with anyone who wants to!

Yep. Mako, booth #2837, stop by and holla!

FYI, there's a Hyperlite demo day(s) at OWC 9/15-9/16. You can ride behind the cable or boat, but have to book your spot. I'll be at o-dub 9/16 in the PM. Schedule of events here

This will be our third time, you will all have a blast... ripr... I would love to but those guys at Mako are a bunch of fruit cakes.. Every time I get around the owner (can't remember his name) he is always staring at me with a weird look in his eyes I think he tried to cop a feel once.. I would keep an eye on him.

An OWC thing would be cool, or maybe drinks and a meal (that is if your paying..)

I was assuming that the AWA would be picking up the tab! :-)

If O-dub and the Convention Center are still standing after a Cat. 4 hurricane is done leveling our state - again.

david, some are guessing cat 5 before it hits land.
Old    tombugg            09-02-2004, 10:11 AM Reply   
Dave, we'll figure it out.. We should all get to gether though..

Brian is actually the biggest P.I.M.P. I know. (well aside from me that is.. Are you staying in the Mako house with us?? If the hurricane doesn't rip that place down, We will!! In fact we should have the industry party there,.. Yeah! That's it, I am going to promote a party for say a few hundred close friends at the Mako house (don't tell Brian) Who wants to tear down the Mako pad!!!! The first day Brian and I met (three or four years ago) I trashed his rental car. Perhaps I can close the relationship by trashing his rental house..

I'll be there! I'd hang out with you Tom but I still can't get the fish hook from that tazer out of my temple.
Old    mako            09-02-2004, 4:32 PM Reply   

This year- 4 feet of air with a 15-passenger transport van. If you do it three times you get to claim it as your trick :-) Its gotta be safer than riding a luggage cart down three flights of hotel stairs after a bottle of Goose!

I got supplemental insurance on the house so we are clear to burn it down. By the way, I found a guy who can hook you up with some pre-paid legal for the night of the industry fight, I mean party (my bad).

This year Ripr will be handling the in house stand up, Scotty will be the human smoke machine / white rapper, Timmy will be working the front door, and our friends from up north will be handling, well you know :-)

OK so I know that this is a long shot. But here goes so I'm from minnesota and me and a buddy are goin to be in florida the week of the expo on vacation. Is it at all possible that someone could get us in? Like I said I know that it's a long shot but it will probably be the only time I would ever get a chance to go. We have both been ridin for years and are really into the sport but happen to have jobs outside of the industry. It sounds like it's the place to see all things wake related. And I would be exstatic if I got a chance to go.

How is it with the hurricanes in Florida? I'm going to the surf expo but I hope the weather will be better.
Old    tombugg            09-06-2004, 9:34 AM Reply   
I am really sorry about the tazers, but that is how I roll. (everything in extreme)Which is why we nee to surpass last years closing the club down, and burn something down. That is where the Mako house comes in… Are you coming to Fl??

Bugg- We'll be there. I've never heard of the Mako house, but I've met Ripr and know of a few other trouble makers that will be that way.

Everyone is invited to stop by the Alliance booth #2451 and catch up with us.

See you there,

If you don't have a booth, how do you get it? Do you have to have a business in the "industry" in order to attend?

Old     (bbr)      Join Date: Apr 2002       09-06-2004, 6:07 PM Reply   
I'll see all you people there!! I'll be in the CWB booth. Should be lots of fun, my first Expo, but I hear its similar to ASR.
Old    mako            09-06-2004, 6:26 PM Reply   
Actually Tom is correct, he does take everything to the “extreme”. To give you an idea, here is a pic from his last AWA event in AZ (Tom I hope you don’t mind). At first I thought he looked ridiculous, but after a while his look grows on you. You have to give the guy props for having the courage to embrace his effeminate tendencies. He is certainly not ashamed to show off his pretty body.

Tom, Anyone can burn down a house. I say we take it up a notch and light some strippers on fire.

Dan, I have one word for you, “Be there”.


Bugg at AWA event

I'll be there if Orlando is still standing after Ivan rolls through. Anyone know if the airlines have been affected by the last two hurricanes. I'll be at the Mako house to see Tom Bugg and Brian lite strippers on fire!!

I love that pic. It makes you look so thin. I am trying to find the one of you in the blue mini skirt at ice skating camp last year. Is it cool with you if I post it? Oh, by the way, Chris is sending me with that black two piece she was wearing last time. She said you can keep it since you liked it so much. Timmy saw your pic. He wants to know if he can bunk with you???

T-48 hrs. Cant wait to see you bro. Are you sure you don’t want me to send that driver to pick you up at the airport?


PS: I know the payback is gonna be hell!!!
