    The yearly payment doesn't look as bad at least hehe. Or maybe a few years of buying gold and staying home instead of that might be better who knows? I can make a mistake just as good as the next guy!
    I can see where an out of stater with a limited vacation could use it but still hi dolla! Better be some serious grams for that price tag geez.
    I do have to say of my buddies that are in clubs, they are tight lipped about it and I've never gotten the secrets from them. They tell me what they get but never locations or the secret hand shake, passwords, real names.....I do have to admit they take it serious. They like their clubs and that's cool, not for me so much.

    I have taken people out quite a few times around here when they come through but mostly to my septarian nodule and petrified wood spots. One guy gave my wife a beautiful lake superior agate necklace he made and people are always very thankful for it, saves them months or YEARS of prospecting for it. It's always a fun time when someone sees gold for the first time in the pan and they really have funny reactions. That's something that glues its picture in your brain.

If they do, great! If they don't I'll just do what I was doing when this idea occurred to me....go prospecting! But, I should make a reasonable effort to get the idea to the public, otherwise I'm not involved, I'm simply existing, and that's a poor way to go through life IMHO.

    yea well I have a feeling you wouldn't spend twice as much going to trade shows as you have a chance to make.. More than one time around

    Vendors doing the shows correctly will make most of their money long after the show is over

    There's no limit on the potential profit, so you can't quantify that. I've done trade shows many times...mostly for a service business, and never made the cost of the show, at the show. It's all about introducing a product, or service.

    The only reason I joined was I was planning on having a booth at their shows, and felt I should be a member to do that. To me, it wasn't worth it for the other "benefits".

    so, my point stands if it doesn't "quantify" in the long run the" vendor" isn't gonna keep doing it.

    Its an actual thing

    All trade shows are lessening, conference centers, venues, closing etc. In every product catagory in our country.

    Even fair grounds are struggling.. for their shows and the yearly showcase fairs attendance is down across the board for these types of events its sad.
