We've arranged for Hard Surface Specialist David Braden to lead a "pub crawl" in down town St Pete where we'll enjoy a few adult beverages as well tour the town nerding out over all the various flooring situations we encounter.
In case you can't make the Crawl or have a few too many, we'll be taking photos of what we encounter and delve deeper into what we found and the fixes in the class room on Saturday afternoon.

No better way to prepare yourself for the reduction of carpeting in your future.
We'll be using some very EXCITING new technology and tools at the Ronald McDonald Houses as well as the event Hotel where you'll get the really get your "hands on"..

3:30- Dave Gill
Guaranteed to be the best motivation speech you'll hear all year, and then some. DO NOT MISS



Start packing your bathing suit folks AND bring your wives AND KIDS this year as there are LOADS of great non carpet cleaning dork activities for them to do in the area.

The schedule is a bit tentative right now but stay tuned for the final list of the festivities.

I have been wanting to take the marketing class from Jon Don, perhaps I will have to attend? I will think about it. Is there going to be an extra charge for the class on top of the registration fee?

We're looking forward to hosting Mikefest this year! Spending a day of cleaning at Ronald McDonald houses will be great, and Bill Yeadon's marketing class will be a winner too. We'll make you welcome at Excellent Supply. Mike has planned to have everyone at our place on Saturday. Our showroom is small, but we'll pack in. And since it's Saturday, our neighbors won't mind us taking over the parking lot with truckmounts. We'll have a day of hands-on and hanging out. We're very happy to host MF. MikeFest is ALWAYS great, and this year's event is gonna be a lot of fun! St Pete's a cool town. Loads of great restaurants & craft beer. So come on down, you'll love it. See you in February. :)

What is the primary location going to be for the events? Is it going to be 1 place or spread out? I am wondering to see where the local hotels are in relation to the event, I am a cheap baster and don't want to rent a car if I don't have to.

There will be 3 locations.

(1) Downtown St Pete is where the Ronald McDonald houses are. It's also where all the cool restaurants and craft beer are located.

(2) & (3) Excellent Supply and JonDon are located on the far north end of St. Petersburg.

A vehicle will be necessary. Or maybe you can carpool.
