Intergroom 2011 Day 1 Starts

Morning has broken and you can feel the energy in the air! It’s like Christmas Time in April for New Jersey Groomers – only it’s called INTERGROOM!
What a morning it’s been already; breakfast by 7:00 am at the hotel, then a hot shower and then a flurry of activity as I decide what to wear out of my suitcase. Today is going to be a long day. The tradeshow opens at 11:00 am and then runs until 8:00 pm. I needed to find something that was professional but comfortable. The problem is, I am notorious for never packing until the last minute and never knowing what I really want to take. Over the years, I’ve just not gotten any better at it, but luckily today I found I had packed exactly what I was looking for.
I had an early start today because while the tradeshow opens at 11:00 am, the first classroom sessions start at 9:30 am, and I have brought my oldest son, AJ with me so that he can attend some of the seminars. Over the last few months AJ has been riding along with me and has awakened an itch he is interested in exploring; the wonderful world of grooming!
AJ’s all settled into his first seminar and I had a quick dance around the tradeshow hall as last minute preparations were completed. Things are already beginning to liven up and the contest ring floor is already covered in clippings from the Terrier class.
I’m excited to get started and have the opportunity to share my passion of cat grooming with all interested visitors to the NCGIA booth!
