I called the manager today but he wasn't in. I was hoping to find out who the contract is through and get a leg up on the process. We have a number in mind for a year round contract and won't stray too far from that number. I've never dealt with a management company before but I've heard mixed reviews.

Wish I could remember the name of this company I entered a bid with. The people that did the summertime maintenance did TERRIBLE....weeds everywhere, shrubs out of control, ruts from mowing with oversized machine for the area. I just laughed. Glad we didn't get it. Oh ya, and we had to contact the on-site manager ahead of time, if there was a rain delay we had a separate form we had to fill out saying the reason and when we would be re-scheduling etc. Hope Lowes is a lot easier. We DO handle a VIP Auto parts and that place is awesome to deal with!

Looking into going to the show. I'd like to go but things rarely work out the way I want them to.

Ya, this time of year my life consists of snow removal (when we have any), ice fishing, and planning for the next season. With some football and beer and stoking the woodstove. =D

As long as no snow is in the forecast I'd love to go. Any interested in getting a group and carpool down, it could be fun.
