Yours and Jacks involvement with the Cooperstown volunteering cleaning project, these Albany Seminars that are done up with such class.. And whats starting to happen. The magazine stories are being written now... But there is another one that I'm holding back on that has occurred to me... It's all sweet.. Of course I'll throw those idea's at you down the road.

Cya at the Albany Seminar..and we'll be signing up soon. Just closing now the vacuum set-up.. Life is golden.

K Kath and I paid up for the 2nd Albany Seminar. If it's anything like the first one it's going to be another huge success. Learning, networking, and hanging with people in my industry and at one of the best events in the country once again.

There's nothing like the positive experience you get from one of Jack and Matts Albany Seminars.

The Granddaughter of Babe Ruth- Linda Ruth Tosetti and her husband Andy would have loved to be at this show especially considering that Matt Johnson and Jack Kramer spear headed the give back free cleaning to American pastime which was the baseball Hall of fame stadium in Cooperstpwn NY.. Which many historians consider this the birthplace of Baseball.

I didn't miss the first Albany event and I don't plan on missing this one or the next one..or the one after that.. just to valuable of a show to miss with two legends themselves in this industry running the show. Learn from the legends Matt Johnson and Jack Kramer. These two can do it all.

On a 1-5 Powerwash wand rating.. There's is a 5+. There is no higher rating than that in the Powerwash wand rating system.

You want to learn, network to make contacts, See Friends and make more friends who you can relate with since we all are in the same business.. And take back your experiences here and make alot more money when you get back home..makes this worth it triple over. The networking and friends you make..are priceless. Make this a must attend on your calendar this year so you won't be left behind------John Tornabene Clean County Powerwashing - Serving Long Island - NY - NJ - PA - CT

John,

Thanks for the kind words, now I will need to try to live up to the expectations you set.

Lol... Jack your a natural at it...

I read what I wrote above and I'm probably overly pumped because of my recent retirement from Job #1 but there's another reason why I'm pumped about the Albany Seminar... The last Industry event I went to was back in 2009 with a "Convention that was" which kicked butt and the MC was excellent.. The one and only Jack Kramer.

Ditto John. Thanks Jack.

Matt, thank you as well. I rec'd the 100$ check today. Quite honestly I think its the first time I have won anything online or at a round table.

Hopefully I can continue this and bring back that skid. Sure could use it as we are busy even into the freezing weather.

Rob,

Matt should have told you that by winning the $100.00 you are not eligible to win the skid. Sorry for the bad news but there is a simple solution, if you mail me a check for $100.00 I will make sure you are in the skid drawing.

Just kidding, congratulations on your win.

Be On The Lookout for new information on the website!

- In the next three weeks we will be posting the door prizes for the event (Jack Kramer sez there is more than $11,000 bucks worth of giveaways so far and he continues to compile the list)

- You will also be seeing the Event "Want Ads" Section on the event website. Looking to buy or a used or new piece of equipment, submit your request using the online form. We will post it in the event want ads. Looking to car pool or split a room, send us the info and we will post it for you.

- You may see a few of the sponsor show specials popping up on the event website. I hear there are some great deals on the horizon. Remember..... this event has some manufacturer's there as sponsors, but different from other events and even the 2006 Northeast Pressure Washing Seminar, we have several of the best contractor distributors that will be at the event for you to meet and greet. There will be booths set up by the distributors with product displays and there will be people there to answer all of your equipment needs. Take the opportunity to talk with them and discuss your business needs.

- Contractors that are registered for the event may receive pre-show notifications of specials that only they have access to. You will be sent a questionairre that is optional to complete. This will allow you to ask questions ahead of the event for the "Expert Panels" so we can try to get all of the questions answered.

The goal of the event is simple - Produce an event for the contractor that helps them to "Continue to Prosper is this Challenging Economy". How are we all going to accomplish this? Provide a schedule of speakers that will provide knowledge for the contractor to generate more sales and customers, provide a venue that allows contractors to network with their fellow contractors to share information that helps complete projects quicker, better and cheaper, and have the industries leading distributors there to offer professional grade equipment at competitive pricing,

We look forward to seeing all of you in Albany!
