Bringing pressure Washin toys for all the girls and boys, what do you want mike?

Please have Santa register the trailer for me so that the New York State Police do not take it from me on my way home.

John,

The link below will take you to the hotel information:

Hotel

We have negotiated a rate of $85.00 per night. There are several other benefits for staying at the hotel like free breakfast and $1.00 off drinks at the bar.

Thanks for registering for the event and we look forward to seeing you in Albany.

Matt and Jack have negotiated a $1.00 discount at the bar for our breakfast. If that isn't Christmas arriving early I don't what is!?! Hah. Santa speaking in Albany, however, would just barely outdo last year's presentation.

This event should not be missed by anyone who plans on taking our industry seriously.

Jake

PS John T. Your bucket of stain is in the mail

You Know Mike, your aiming too low for your wish. Wish for something BIG like a cell phone from THIS century. You would be surprised that phones today actually have touch tone, call waiting, call forwarding, a speaker, a mute button, voicemail AND.......................wait for it....................internet access. I know its hard to believe and you are probably thinking it is the year 2050 but it's true. These phones exist. So aim HIGH my friend and wish for one of these amazing phones!!!

Mike, i sent your request to Santa, recieved this back from him.

"Dear Matt and Jack, I recieved your request for Mr. Pontillos request at the event. we ran the required background check on santas naughty and nice list. Well, we have us a pickle. He is not on either list. Per policy, we can not grant his request as not appearing on the nice list caps his gift amount value to $100. Would he take a new cell phone instead? Best Regards, Santa "

Sorry dude, I tried.

I heard that Mike's cell phone had a metal antenna which snapped off but he says he customized his phone where the wire Hanger sticking out of it with tin foil wrap on the end of it works pretty good. Mike did say he can't wait for cassette radio's to come out....

Why don't you have an antique phone contest at the ALBANY EVENT? Mike would surely win that by at least 25 yrs if not longer..lol

You just need a Lifeproof case, Mike. Or stop falling in swimming pools while you're washing.

Thad,

Sometimes you just have to jump into a pool on purpose to get a job done correctly. I do advise emptying pockets beforehand!

Thad,

Matt said that they were going to pass around a hat for donations at the seminar so that I can get a new phone. I hope everyone comes so that I can get a top of the line phone ..... It's tough being a part timer in this business.

Hope to see everyone there!

Ron,

That would work well if cleaning the pool itself. In this case, we were cleaning the inside edge of the ipe' pool deck. Plus, going for a swim in the summer is fun!

Will you gentleman be providing Certificates of completion for attendees taking Courses? I ask because we have some folks inquiring about attending from the ***** that want to count this towards credit hours for certifications. If your giving the certificate will it include the hours of training?

I have also notice Certification so I would assume those will get certificates. Clarification will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for a response in advance

There are certificates of attendance issued to attendees.

Our power washing and wood restoration class is presented from an objective based curriculum that was written in 2006 and is updated annually.

Objective based curriculums are the framework behind professional education. The class sessions are designed to insure the students are presented information to meet the objective of that topic. Exams are given testing the students comprehension and understanding of the course objectives. The final exam test the entire course content objectives for understanding. Students who pass our exam are given certificates, certifying successful completion of the powerwashing and wood restoration class and its objectives.

Look forward to seeing everyone in Albany.
