    Flats, I did vote, but recall having a problem trying to enter the number of people that would be attending with me.

    Not stirring up trouble- just offering up my two cents here.
    I do not know the whole backstory on the director leaving the Assn. either. I just hope it's not a knee jerk decision, "guilty until proven innocent" kind of decision, which sadly, has become the norm everywhere.
    My understanding of the Conference is that it was started in Vernon many years ago. So, basically, the show is returning to it's "roots" being in Vernon.
    I believe Maple Flats is correct with the Vernon show being planned and organized before the Assn. had anything on paper.
    I can not prove or disprove this, but I was told by another area sugar maker that the equipment dealers had committed to Vernon prior to the announcement of the Syracuse event.
    And now for the disclaimer- I have no connection to Vernon Downs Casino or the State Fairgrounds, and it doesn't matter to me where a "single" event might eventually land. I registered for the Vernon event because of the dealer commitment comment. No idea if that was the right or wrong decision. I'll let you guys know in January.
    I hope everyone enjoys whichever event they choose to attend and that the upcoming sugaring season is better than the last one!

    I'm with Maplewalnut - attendance on my selection will probably depend on courses, dealer attendance etc.
