    I just go for the free re-usable shopping bags and freebies given out and enter all the contests.

    If you want to do that to save a couple bucks you have bigger problems in life.

    I go almost every year in the last 20... being a germaphobe to begin with, I never ever those contests for the sole reason that it requires touching their grimey tablets. This year I'll have to be extra vigilant in not touching things and I do not too touch myself or my phone, etc. Until I wash.
    Oh man, tell me about it. I remember one year (but every year really), they had a GTR on the floor and people were free to sit in it. All I can see in my mind is all the greasy handprints from people who had just finished eating at the food kiosk nearby.

    Not to mention all these parents that let their kids just sit in it like a playzone while others are genuinely interested in the vehicle.

    Also, I wasn't anticipating that anyone would do that for the savings but just more so due to our social issues nowadays.

    Kids are why we can't have nice car shows.

    Ended up getting tickets to the Auto Show for the Wednesday night for a Genesis Owners Event. Going to give personal tours of the GV80.

    Awesome!!! How'd you get the invite for the Owners Event? You must be on their list because of your G70?

    I assume so. I just received an email invite to the show. Possibly because I bought it from Calgary Genesis and they reached out to that group.

    Was able to get two tickets.

    Figures, just about the time I start getting interested in German product they all withdraw from the show. I really shouldn't be buying a new vehicle anyway but it will be a game day decision as to whether or not I attend.

    Oh shit this starts tomorrow... I'm thinking of wearing disposable gloves getting in and out of cars lol is that weird? I'll probably just be super careful not to touch my face at all until I come up to a washroom and can wash my hands... it will be tough not to touch my phone though.

    Ask dealers if you have any contacts. Say you are looking to buy this year and want to go.

    The (potential) virus will just be on your gloves instead of your hands, so the risk is about the same if you touch your face. I wouldn't bother unless you change gloves every time you touch something. Just keep your hands away from your face and when you walk near a washroom, pop in for a hand wash. What they really should do is make you use hand sanitizer before entering the grounds like a lot of buffets do, then at least there is a reasonable line of defense. Basically the exact same thing people should be doing every year IMO.

    A guy was wearing latex gloves at my gym last night Probably ripped on the first machine he used.

    Reconsidering going if I am honest. was going to go before the Roughnecks game but with that being cancelled not sure i would make a special trip down. Seems like it might be too risky given the current events.

    I haven’t missed show once since I was a toddler and even I’m a little apprehensive to go.

    Was pretty busy for a Wednesday last night. Some people in latex gloves, but mostly business as usual from what I could see.

    Was supposed to go tonight but the wife doesn’t want to deal with the unwashed at the show. Going to stay home safe and sound.

    I think I've probably gone for at like 20 years in a row and I am going to skip. Everyone putting their dirty fingers all over and getting all up in your business around every car.
