I wouldn't miss it for the world:) What a sweetheart. I should post a picture of her. She has a look that can melt your heart.

Yeah, I'll be driving down the new truck. Still no graphics or lettering, but now Keith is on contract and should be done with reconstructed logos soon. Got to say a few things about the PWNA.

Never joined, being a woodie, not a pressure washer. But, today has been an eye opener. Due to weather, decided early this AM to go to Baltimore tomorrow for the PWNA roundtable.

Called the tele. number before 8:00 AM this morning and left a message. Was a bit concerned as a last minute registrant and did not want to drive for 3 hrs. and get shut out. I had 3 return phone calls from the PWNA, one from Everett, and two from Heather from the main Quakertown, Pa. office. And an email, letting me know that last minute registrants will be accepted.

I'll see. But encouraged. Maybe this woodie has found a home.

I got a phone call today from a company in California that has a nation wide contract. One guy I know already got a ton of work from this company and he's a PWNA member. The nice part of this story was that this company from California looked for companies to handle this work by going on the PWNA website. They already got one guy in the tri-state area to handle about $25,000 worth of work. This guy recommended me to handle a certain part of this contract and another PWNA Past Executive member Jim Grady(Also past IWCA President) recommended me also.

The moral of the story is that all of this came thru because of my PWNA membership. IF you see Everett you can pass this story to him. Just another reason to become a member. Large companies nationwide do look thru this organizations at times for contractors. This is one of the many reasons I would highly recommend that you and others become PWNA members.

The PWNA org. for better or worse they at least are getting some name recognition and they've been in existence 16 yrs to get that. This is something to consider if you join this organization.

I am going to post this in its own thread also.

Okay...more time to post about this...it was a great meeting.

We all toured the DeWalt / Black & Decker facility. What an amazing place! The workshop had not only every tool you can think of, but examples of things you can do with the tools. There were also examples in the facility of projects under construction, with each area labeled so you could see the example of it. The detail in the Black and Decker University workshop area was amazing, and if you ever get the chance, it is well worth the trip!

Presentations were by:

Paychex - payroll services

Flood - wood care discussion

Sidewinder - about surface cleaners and their construction

Prosoco - building restoration and common problems in masonry to look out for

Hot lunch was also served.

There was free time to network.

The Maryland Chapter meeting for PWNA was the last part of the day, and new officers stepped up.

There were lots of give aways and no one went home empty handed.

There was a Rig contest with a grand prize and two runners up.

I'll post pics in a little while...

The attached video is Tom Vogel demonstrating how tough the sidewinder is as he jumps up and down on it.
