Ron- GREAT photos! Mind submiting some for the 2006 calendar?

The show looks awesome and the Crazy Mouse looks pretty good too. I dont know if I would have chosen a pink track, but all in all it looks great.


The Giant Wheel looks great as usual- the Direct TV hub decoration is a good idea. Great way to generate some additional income.

Fantastic photos Ron, the fair and the show look great. I really enjoyed visiting the ISF last year, too bad I missed it this year. The new coaster is awesome looking. And looking at the concession trailer pics, the Dugout Grill was with us in Fowlerville, Michigan back in July (as an indy, of course) and I personally thought they had the neatest and nicest trailer there. The Soda Shoppe was in Ionia (great old fashioned soda's there, and the guys are really friendly), and I think the themeing is fantastic. From what I understand the same group that own's Spaghetti Eddie's (they were in Ionia, too, great lasagna) owns the Soda Shoppe. Thanks for sharing the pics Ron. Looks like it was a gorgeous day to visit the fair.

The Dugout Grill was also featured at IAAPA and Gibtown. Pretty nice concession trailer!

Spaghetti Eddie's trailor complex is in MN now. They have quite a set, I wonder if the Soda Shoppe will be there as well.

The midway looks really good IMO. Any chance of some night shots?

Nice pics Ron. Noticed that Tony's unit was not there. Interesting how NAME is going to mix and match units to round out the midways this year. A trip to either Memphis or Jackson is definetley in the cards this year.[8D]

I counted 47 rides on the midway.

I have no pics of the joints. The midway was very dead when I was there and that is not a good time to be taking pics of the joints.
