Steve......this is really sensational. You obviously realize that you
> have the opportunity to bring all the dealers in the southeast together
> as one big group. DON'T HESITATE TO USE THIS ABILITY !!
> ....The bigger & better this gets, ONE THING CRYS OUT..DEALERS NEED A
> FORUM IN WHICH TO COMMUNICATE....You (and we as dealers) need a spot in
> "The Sporting Goods Industry Online" to offer goods for sale, at a
> discount, that we can't move .Also to put out requests for items that we
> are looking for. For Example: This summer I sold 70 pairs of Converse
> basketball shoes that I could not move for $15 a pair--My cost was
> $47...I made 30 phone calls to do this. I have things like this come up
> all the time and I know I'm not the only one.
> I have 5 or 6 overstocked items right now that I would like to move, but
> I don't have time to sit down and make 30 phone calls. This page should

> THE OTHER PAGES COMBINED. Anyway, see what kind of feedback you get at
> the Southeast Show.
> Hope I've been some help.....Good Luck at the show and if you have time
> when you get back, let me know about the "Dealers Forum".
