Our Annual California Round Table is almost booked !!!!

Recommended Posts

Just a reminder.

All that have committed to attending must have their money in one week from notice, unless other agreements were made ahead of time.

Though we thought about accepting credit cards, we simple do not want to pay the fees. Check will be fine.

I am taking my family and friends out sailing tomorrow, throw a BBQ for everybody. I love sailing, especially with friends and family.

Took a look at the 50+ foot sailing yacht. What a yacht !!!

This event is almost full. All contractors attending ( Here and everywhere ) are top notch.

We may have a couple of surprise visitors attending the R/T. I cannot say who at this time because details have to be worked out, but it looks good. You will be able to ask away any questions in his line of work while sailing to the and from the game.

I am sorry I cannot be more . ?

Please feel free to contact me at 510-612-0437 for more information.

That sounds awesome, Jim.

Thank you!

As long as it's not the same weekend as my window cleaning conference in New Orleans (August 21) I will definitely be there.

Thad,

If you are serious about going, you are welcome to attend.

However, if you are just trying to take a spot with no plans of going.....that someone else could benefit from PLEASE inform us. Space is very limited and it would not be a professional act if you are trying to prevent someone from going by reserving a spot that you have not intention of going to.

Please send your check to us ASAP, otherwise I will assume that this was your way to try to prevent good people from learning something from this R/T.

Jim I doubt he is serious

That maybe true about your friend Russ, but I cannot assume that. You see, he did not say it was a joke.

As you know, Thad wrote "I will definitely be there." . That sounds as serious as anything else he wrote before. Unless he jokes about everything he writes, then everyone should not take him seriously. I have to take him at his word and so far, he has not giving me the impression that his word is not good.

I take someones word or their hand shake very seriously. It shows who you are as a person and whether or not someone wants to do business with you.

Maybe thats one of the reasons why we have doubled our net income last year.

You see, this round-table, because we did not ask for any ad fees from any manufacture, The Crystal Cleaning Company LLC has absorbed all the costs with the exception of $275 dollars per person. We need the right off and figured this is a GREAT way to give back to our fellow contractors. It's like paying for part of their airfare or more. We are paying up to $675 per person that attends, in fact some may attend the Saturday event which will be even more $$$$ per person.

So you see, having a person lie, mislead or joke when money is involved or when trying to advise someone is just not me and has no place in doing business..

Again, Thad is a person who does not lie to my knowledge, and because of his integrity, I need to take him at his word.

Jim, I was responding to your original "invitation" post, not your edited one.

Remember it? The one that said I offer no useful content to TGS?

The one that said my last 40 posts were meaningless and that I'm just here for drama?

The one that offered to allow me to pay to come to your event to provide drama for the entertainment of the other contractors?

Yeah, that one. Not the cleaned up Pollyanna version that you rewrote to sound sincere after I responded to the post but the nasty, petty one that you originally posted. Hello, Mr. Sarcsasm. Meet Mr. Sarcasm. I'm not the only one who has noticed that you make snarky, provoking comments and then edit them after you get a response in a pathetic attempt to appear righteous and persecuted. It's not going to fly any more.

So, in a nutshell- no I am not attending your little cruise. I am not interested in ANYTHING that you may have to offer. I don't care how the 'other half' lives because I am just a poor dumb hick Southerner and I just ain't used to your (brother's) high-falutin' ways. I could not possibly care less about going for a ride on someone else's boat or meeting your brother's clients. I have my own boat and my own friends (and their boats) and they don't cost me a dime.

Is this a threat?

What sane person would regard that as a threat?

I'm giving you the option of either addressing your behavior or just letting bygones be bygones and leave it at that.
