Day 1 @ CJU – HobbyTron Doesn’t Fly


I’m at Commission Junction University (CJU) right across the street from the beach in Santa Barbara, California. RMAMA (Rocky Mountain Association of Affiliate Marketers) hosted a swanky dinner. Troy from Hobbytron recounted how he was prohibited from giving away helicopters to affiliates. Hobbytron is famous for handing out remote control helicopters. They fly them in the lobby of the hotel. Today it was networking on the lawn and Troy and Dan Ben arrived with two boxes of goodies. A CJU employee asked them to remove the boxes immediately. No toys were given out. Long time affiliates who have got toys for years will have to go look for other souvenirs for their kids.

And, just because I am an affiliate of Hobbytron, I’m going to post a picture to remind me of the drive down. A helicopter mounted with a video camera was filming a brigade of Scions going down the Santa Monica freeway.
