Thanks Charly for your compliment. The early marketing is a plus. We have over two dozen people registered for the event already. A lot of the contractors attending wern't at the last one. I will be surprised if we don't fill it up and have to close registration. Many are taking advantage of registering early and staying at the hotel room block to get extra chances at winning the skid in addition to securing their spot for the seminar. Jack and I are really excited and can't wait for March to get here!

I am glad to see that you guys are providing house washing and wood restoration classes again. Many people, especially new contractors, would benefit greatly by taking these classes. I know this because I speak from experience. I have taken these classes and it has not only increased my profits and business, it has increased my confidence and experience and I will now take on just about any project. The classes are extremely informative and come with technical support. By that I mean I was able to call either one of them if I was on a project that I was stumped on. Keep up the good work!!!

Matt when does early registration end for the Albany Seminar? Between me negotiating between some people on equipment to the very last moment, still talking to Linda Ruth Tosetti probably at least 5-10 hrs a week, doing things for the PWNA, supporting all over the net the *****, talking to the guys on my ending job every day about problems there going to run into in the future and how I still might be able to help, still chasing some money owed,,, and being completely excused from my job and not allowed to go to my work x-mas party that was supposed to have my retirement party wrapped in with it so my Union can be a bit more cost effective(they are giving me a $1000 restaurant gift certificate for my retiring present so that's good) and fighting the Shingles that were lingering around my eye and the meds were pretty much useless because of avoiding the docs.... Things have been crazy. The pains are rough but now with the heaviness I feel is distracting... But my eye nerve might have been spared and that is what I cared about the most... I lost track on when your early bird registration has to be in?

Sorry for the confusion even on this post.. The fatigue is terrible..

Hey John. Nice talking with you today. The answer to your question: Yes there is a cap on the number of people that can attend the pressure washing seminar; when it is full, the registration on the website will automatically close and we will make an announcement that the event is full.

Take care and Happy Holidays to everyone.
