Last year I did 14 A or AA shows and this year I haven't gone to my THIRD one yet and for some reason the whole affair feels more financially painful. I planned on showing a lot less this year. Last year I was about as point hoor as I can get (although to be a proper point hoor in this zone you need to knock on 20 shows' doors) and this year, that was NOT the plan. But damn, I thought for sure I'd be at more shows before the show year was more than half over!
It makes me wonder if/when the show managers will feel the pinch? My friend was at Conyers yesterday and said it was packed. Is that maybe more southerners who might have done KY or the NE (Lake Placid/Vermont) staying closer to home or just the same old same old?
