Head East

Calling all Easterners! This year's Club Industry East show has a new location, trying out the sunny locale that so many retirees and sunworshippers have flocked to — Florida. And it's not just any city in Florida — it's Orlando, home of Mickey Mouse and other family friendly activities. And the show is in June, the perfect time for a little family vacation. Imagine that!

If you want more details about the show, see our pre-show report on page 42 of this issue, or go to the show's Web site at
