We have a Harley motorcycle gathering this weekend in our local village and there's a ViaSat tent there.   I walked by it twice, and each time there were at least three people checking it out.  

I almost checked it out myself, with the idea of playing completely ignorant of satellite internet just to see what the guy said, but I decided not to.  It looked like a lot of people were interested, though.

Events can be tricky for a retailer. I know several who have tried them and they said they usually end up being a lightning rod for existing customers to vent....hard to sell when the prospective customers are hearing a lot of unhappy customer's feedback. 

In our beam's footprint, either VS1 or 2, you may as well hold up a tall copper rod in a lightning storm.

Nice! I know we have a few traveling events like that so a few fairs, NHRA races, etc.

Well, now this is downright interesting.  I see a ViaSat tent last weekend, and yesterday, for the first time ever outside of the internet, I saw a ViaSat ad.  Again, I've NEVER seen a ViaSat ad of any type, whether print or TV, outside of ads on the internet, and I see a TV commercial less than a week after seeing my first ViaSat tent.  

Oh, and I now know that it's VIE-uh-sat, not VEE-uh-sat.  I thought it was the latter.
