    Hey Graham

    I can tell you that several exhibitors told me SCI was bad and DSC was very good.

    It seemed nice and busy on both Friday and Saturday when I was there.

    DSC official numbers will be published in about two weeks from the end of the convention. They will be far greater than the SCI numbers.

    I was there Saturday and Sunday. I thought it looked much more busy than last year. The exhibitors I spoke with echo what has been written - SCI was slow but Dallas was much busier.

    All my friends were very happy with the Dallas show - SCI not so much.

    Same sentiments I got from most of my friends that were there ..... great show for pretty much all of them ...... ! I am sure it will be bigger and better next year !

    Less people will be in Reno next year .......

    Going long on DSC.
