    Don't know what you thought but, that was the worst CCH program I've ever attended. Besides poor location in the Convention Center, inadequate seating, 5 1/2 hour lunch breaks for visiting the exhibitors, tremendous lines for the lunch (I went to Steak & Shake) the content of the programs seemed to me to be repetitive and without substance. The last 1 1/2 hour on Friday was the only saving grace. I did enjoy the Ash trees in Carmel thing. Was it just me? Your thoughts?

    well, i their defence, this was the first year that they combinded the golf/ornamentals/turf all togeather. the 5.5hr lunch break was to get people into the 'equipment show' and feed their sponsers. so i think they were over taken by the turn out. the past years were just fine, but the show was alot smaller. i will say that i was alittle pissed of on the fact that the class's were over crouded, and the amount of CCH's offerd were not their! i do alot of aquatics work, so i sat in the 'invasive aquatic plants' class for almost 6hrs and worked thru my lunch their and got LOADS of great info, but not a single CCH! i feel that the workshops should be FREE, i went to one workshop, tought by zac and the guy from TG, good info, but not worth the $60 (i just went in and sat down, i didn't pay, never even questiond me). yes the EAB info was good. i did like ALL the speakers, they did keep it going, my major complaint their is, no time for questions afterwords. best of all, i got paid for 3 days, got some really good if not great info, free lunches, and meet a few people from around indy that i have talked too that, we might beable to help each other out in working to start up a maintenance program. so all and all, glad it's over, but did leave happy, and look forward to next year. jmo

    Well----Maybe it was just me. Maybe I expected too much. That baseball bat info was probable worth the price of the program.
