In spite of three solid weeks of deep freeze, there are some signs of spring here in Michigan: The Western Michigan Golf show is just over three weeks away. The show will be held in downtown Grand Rapids on Feb. 13 – 15 and will feature Rick Smith, as well as a couple of the contestants from The Big Break X Michigan.
I’ve not been to the Grand Rapids show, but have attended the one in Novi, Michigan several times. About half the booths in the show are travel related; most of the rest are occupied by retailers with last year’s items at deep discount. A few are small businessmen hawking their inventions, golf publications or custom equipment.
I never buy anything at these shows, but enjoy walking around and soaking in the golf atmosphere. After the last month, I’m desperate. I may just drive over to Grand Rapids in an attempt to maintain my sanity.
