I'm doing this on my own, just so you know. This has absolutely nothing to do with any organizations that you or I might be

familiar with. I just had this idea. While reading a lot of posts on the subject of seminars and

where they are held, I realized that you, the attendees, had no say in the matter! I also realize that I am reaching a very small

percentage of you, compared to the total number of both PCT guys and ADC guys in our field, but I need to start somewhere. Which

months suit you best? Nov. Dec. Jan. Feb. Mar. And where would you like to go? ( C,mon, we all want a seminar to be held in our

backyard, but other than that: ) "Vegas; we need the change of pace." "A Caribbean cruise; what the heck, it's deductible."

"Hawaii, I'll never get there any other way!" And the list goes on and on. Tell me what you think, either publicly or privately,

it doesn't matter. Since this is my post, no one will ever know and if anyone recommends the Islamic States for our next seminar,

I can finally take advantage of my Concealed Carry Permit!

Does that limit us to concealed carry friendly states, Wink?

I think Feb or March would be good. Stay away from Thanksgiving and Christmas, and give people a chance to recover their finances a month or two after. If done in Feb, how about a warmer state? Tennessee? Texas?

Good post Jeremy! This is what I'm looking for. Ideas. This is just an idea of mine and I need to get everyone's opinion.

You would have better luck getting the list of past attendees from seminars and asking them vs. asking on this.... Less than 10% of operators on this forum actually attend...

Bud25, You should have finished your sentence. ....less than 10% of the operators on this forum actually attend......every year. I've

been to twice as many as you and I'm not sure we've ever met. Do you know Dave K? How about Ron Scheller? Jim Bethell? Eric Arnold?

Paul Brooker, and a host of other people on here? I've probably talked at more seminars than you've attended and just because a lot

of the guys are new on here and probably can't afford trips to Florida right off the bat, doesn't mean they wouldn't love to come.

Thanks for your intelligent input; it was completely worthless.

Just maybe, they could be at the same place and time as Kansas' deer hunting opener, or right before the bass spawn in Florida. laugh

I just figure we miss all of the summer working. The only place that is like summer in the winter...is very south Florida. Naples...Miami...Keys. Otherwise, you are talking Caribbean to Hawaii.

Wife doesn't care about bass season. But, sun shine is a draw.

My season is April thru October. Fur trapping and Deer Hunting in November, trapping thru December, then Ice fishing in Jan. and Feb. Late Feb or second week of March are my most down time.

I think Jan. Feb. and it should be 2.5 days if you travel a long distance there is a lot more that goes on besides the class room. Two days you have people leaving early or staying over with the other unlucky ones because they couldn't fly out until the next day. The center of the eastern half of the U.S. has the largest pop. for driving distance. Las Vegas probably has the best flights and is a great place to hang out if you don't gamble.
The summer might be a good choice and have it near the Great Lakes. Great beaches without salt or sharks and you could take a deductible trip with the whole family all the way down to the third generation. You could add several days on to the beginning or the end. That might make it worth being gone during a pretty busy time because they are who we are working our off. When you get older you and your kids appreciate the most valuable thing you gave them..TIME. You have to figure out a way of working less. Don't give your time away topeople who don't love you. Makem pay for it and give it to who you want. Off subject sorry I'll think a little more and get back.

O.K. Paul, here we go.

Late Feb. in Las Vegas.
Easy/affordable (direct Allegiant Air) flights.
Good weather in that area then.

I love it! A positive response from the Mother Country. Brian, I certainly hope that you enjoy the trip. ( We also have a National

Motorcycle Museum ) And they are one of our customers, to boot! What I would be really interested in is the workshops. Any "hands-on"

type of work would be really be appreciated.

Bud25, Okay, maybe I blew a gasket and if I'm wrong, I apologize. However, today is day two of the WCT seminar and this is exactly

one of the two posts today. What does that tell you?
