Last year was the largest sale we've ever had in March. This year I think the quality at the top is better. We have a significant group of horses at the top end of this sale. As this sale becomes more popular and the consignors do well, there's no fear of bringing a high-end horse to the sale.
Oregon offers some of the most accessible, high quality lodgings in the West, each with its own distinct service and attention to detail. It's gratifying to receive this recognition, especially when it's from travelers themselves.
Seems like more and more of the technical side, quality, and sound of music is of higher importance in the music business... and less of the essence, meaning, and intent inside the music is recognized and appreciated.
The EFI four-stroke segment is still the benchmark of the outboard industry in terms of quality and satisfaction. From top to bottom, there are some outstanding engines being produced in this segment. However, the brands in the DI two-stroke segment have made some substantial improvements in 2005 and they are clearly producing some of the best engines in the industry. We also see a change in that carbureted four-strokes no longer outperform EFI two-stroke outboards as a result of EFI two-strokes improving and carbureted four-stroke engines declining. The gap between the two four-stroke technologies is now the widest we have seen.
Bermuda is coming back into its own because of location, quality, and sophistication. We're primarily an incentive destination, and insurance and financial groups are the ones doing upscale incentives.
