Thanks for coming! We had a great time. Here are some quick notes.
(Click here to jump to Convention 2014 info)


Classes on Thursday & Friday were well received, with topics like Medeco M3 and several Kaba E-Plex offerings. Roger Penner taught an Electronic Safe Lock Spiking class that got great reviews.

We set up the two big door prizes: Smart TV & Sound System, with a Wii and played games & cranked up the music. Saturday at the trade show, Heather Lovell sold over $1000.00 in raffle tickets for the sound system, resulting in a donation of some $850.00 to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. Saturday night at the Pub Night, Richard Hart won the Smart TV. He told Us he couldn't wait for his grandson to come over and show him how to hook it up.


Richard Hart with ... hmmm Heather Lovell. Coincidence?

Saturday Night Pub Night at Billy Bob's turned out to be a lot more fun than it sounded like in the brochure. We had the place to ourselves for the first few hours and did some calf roping on the dance floor, guided by rodeo veteran Joe Butterfield and his son Curtis. Great drinks & snacks were sponsored by Medeco.
