Hi everyone.

 

We would just like to thank all of the operators who stopped by our booth at Cinegear and also the Stabilizer Expo at Film Tools on Sunday. 

 

A big thank you to John Perry and Andrew Ansnick for helping out the entire weekend!!!  John, as busy as you are, to take the time out of your schedule to do this for us is beyond generous of you.  Huge thanks and hugs!  Andrew, thank you so much for doing everything you did (and are still doing this morning) and especially for sticking by us on the hardest load out ever on Saturday. Thanks to both of you for working so hard. Eric Fletcher, Marianne at Tranvideo and Pat at Inovativ Carts, we could not have pulled it off without you.  Thanks!!

 

To those of you who participated in our raffle for a PRO vest at the Stabilizer Expo, you guys are awesome!!  We raised $1325.00 for the Castaic animal shelter .  We will be meeting with them next week to give them their check.

 

Congratulations to Rich Davis who one the grand prize!!

 

Again, thank you to everyone.  We couldn't have done it without you!

 

Sincerely,

 

Michelle, Jack, Chad, Tommy and Chris

It should be us as a community thanking you guys! But no words can describe our thanks enough!
 
You produce some of the best equipment in the world, stand by it and stand by us... and now the animal shelter as well!
 
Better people, and a better company don't exist anywhere in the world! Thats why I amongst others do business with you guys, 
even though Im based on the other side of the planet.
 
Im prouder then ever to fly equipment from GPI Pro Systems!
So many thanks again Jack, Michelle, Chad, Tommy and Chris!

Michelle,
James has beaten me to it but I can only reiterate what he has said and thank you so much for the warmest of hospitality to the crazy Kiwi. You, Jack and Tom were just unbelievable.
Thank you and I will speak to you again very soon.

I adore what James wrote, but I couldn't help reading it in his voice, and now I'm giggling.

Wow, thank you for the nice post Jack. It was my pleasure to help out. I am a loyal customer. Loyal customers, they don’t just come back, they don’t simply recommend you, they insist that their friends do business with you. That comes easy for me with the products you are putting out. Here's to making our industry better, which is our common goal and that which gives me great pleasure and pride.

To My GPI Family,

 

You're very welcome!  Helping out at Cinegear was the least that I could do to begin to repay the years of support and warmth you all have shown me.  I hope you guys had a great time (despite the load out, which really wasn't that bad, just a lot of waiting around).

 

I'm so glad you were able to raise money for a great cause, and give away a ton of stuff in the process.  THANK YOU Jack, Michelle, Chad, Tommy & Chris for running a business the right way- giving back to the community, putting your customers first and treating everyone who walks through the door like guests in your own homes....plus it doesn't hurt that you continue to innovate and improve upon what is already the very best quality gear in our industry.  Ask any operator who chooses to do business with you guys and they will tell you the same thing.  I wish you all the very best the rest of this year has to offer and look forward to next year's event!

 

-Andrew

 

P.S.  You guys have earned a break so let's all go fishing.

If I had known how badass Pro was I wouldn't have keyed Jack's truck or stuffed a tampon in his air-horn!  

 

Seriously, being with them since '97 has been a pleasure, and it's nice to see that the torch passed to Jack and the gang has been handled VERY well.  

 

I will come up and foul your shop soon...maybe I'll bring some touch-up paint for the truck?  I'd offer to remove the tampon as well but it was shot out like a cannon ball when he blasted the horn at the Steadi-expo.  It struck Frank Rush in the head then bounced into Rich Davis' beer -- that loser got quite the raffle prize eh!!!  Good times :-)

GPI Gang, thanks for the hospitality and the giveaways as always making us feel at home . . . . .  Rich Davis is still buying drinks!

 

As for that horn on that beast of a vehicle you drive Jack, I think it would be just awesome to put that thing on my Smart Car., but I think blowing it just once would knock the damn thing over

 

Also big thanks to everyone that put together the stabalizer expo along with all the vendors that came out.  I heard Baldwin talking about doing the Expo next year in the jumbo's parking lot,  not really sure why because nothing ever happens there . . . . ?

Maybe you should update your photo in the Tiffen rig!  Ha!

doing nothing is becoming more popular everyday.  Hell...Seinfeld was a show about nothing and it lasted 9 seasons.  I think the airtank for Jack's bowel-loosening, tampon-launching horn is about the size of your car?
