It appears that Matt and Jack are going to outdo the meeting in 2009. That was one terrific event.

This is a "can't miss" to mark on the new calendar. And a great way to kick off the 2012 season.

I have 3 houses and possibly 2 more to do, 4 major deck restoration all over 4 k to start off next year. These were to be done this year. I quit doing wood quotes and was getting quite a few request in the last few weeks.

I understand Brian, Gotta make $$$ if it is there to be made, We are about two weeks behind you for the season, I hope you can make it up. I could get you out for a round of golf, but we would need to play "winter rules", you know... a mulligan per hole and free lift out of a snowbank if buried.

We have some great speakers lined up and It looks like there will be some pretty decent sales offered at the event by vendors for machines, parts and accessories. Bob from Pressure Tek will be here and he always has fun to chat with. Got to get me one of those bandits!

Sounds like a good one to go to but it is the start of busy season. Also the start of golf season??

Brian,

Come on. 2 days in late March/early April is not going to kill the game for the remainder of the season. The course will be too wet, the rough will be a shag pit, and you will be cursing your swing. Friggin' golf. It makes a bad coke habit appear logical.

Happy Holidays,

Jake
