    Who's planning to go to the Green Industry Expo in Charlotte November 4-6?
    If all goes as planned, I'll be there.

    I hadn't signed up to go to the educational stuff, seeing as how I already know everything. Do you know if I can change my mind (what mind?) when I get there? Or should I reconsider now?

    You are already past the "early bird" date for the seminars....it was the 15th of last month. You might be able to sign up when you get there, but not sure.I know you can on the internet. The early bird price was $320, after that I think it's around $380. That includes choosing between over 75 seminars, but you can only attend to like 8 different ones of the three days, a couple of speeches, tickets to both the outdoor and indoor expo (which is free anyway) and includes the lunch at the outdoor expo. I paid the extra $20 for the breakfast buffet roundtables through PLCAA. They have all these tables with a different subject posted on each table. Each table has its own moderator to get the discussions started while you eat breakfast. I really had a great time a couple years ago. If anyone is new to the business (less than 5 years) I strongly suggest getting the full meal deal. If you know it all, then come and teach some of us newbies.

    Two years ago when I went I attended mostly marketing seminars and roundtables. This year I will be attending mostly businees oriented seminars and such. Next year it might be pesticide or landscaping. Also, new this year, that have a lot of tracks on hydroseeding.

    Oh yeah, it also includes a perspective members night which includes free food and alcohol beverages. You have to drink fast though, it only last about an hour :drinkup:

    Four of us, that's it? Maybe we can get together for coffee or something.
