For the second consecutive year, we had a booth at the prestigious American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) Convention Trade Show. This year's event was held far away from our rough Canadian winter, in beautiful Anaheim, California, USA.
Our spot on the floor of the Anaheim Convention Center was great, and so was the feedback from our visitors. We heard a lot of "your bats are awesome" and "we like the new branding."
To entertain our guests, we send our COO Martin Frigon, our new Dealer Development rep, long-time baseball sales agent Blair Quinn, and our experienced bat maker and former profesionnal player Goefrey Tomlinson.
For Tomlinson, it was his first experience at a trade show with us. It doesn't mean he wasn't comfortable in that position. Raised in Texas, he played almost his whole baseball career in the US so he knew a LOT of people in the attendance. It was great to count on his deep technical knowledge.
It was great to see partners from all over the world. Among them, Justin Smith, who owns a baseball facility in Perth, Australia, travelled all around the globe to be part of the convention.
We also met some Canadian fellows. Among them our friends from the Source for Sports banner baseball committee, Jean-François Daoust (Marc Sports in Gatineau, Qué.), John Carmichael (Western Cycle, Regina, Sask.), and Chris Nomeland (Al Anderson's (Saskatoon, Sask.) were pleased to see some of our new products that we can't wait to share with you. We are very excited that our products will be available in many Source for Sports stores all across Canada.
