    I am wondering who, if anyone, is planning on attending?
    Apparently, it is to be held on January 28. I am awaiting directions and an itinerary. Provided there is additional interest, I will post once I know.

    Gravely On Tour is a program wherein a local Ariens/Gravely dealer has a equipment demonstration and business marketing seminar.
    The seminar for the business marketing is going to be hosted by a Kevin Kehoe entitled "making your business more profitable".
    Additionally, Gravely has come out with a commercial 34" ztr, it is supposed to be at the product demonstration, and I want to see/operate it.
    Go to Gravely's web site, their On Tour lists other locales.

    How was the Gravely seminar? Iam in the Dallas area and do not have the time to make the Shreveport or Houston seminar. I was really interested on what they had to say on the business side. Did they give any good tips?

    The seminar was worth the trip for me.
    I now have enough information to simplify my accounts procedures to speed up and accurize estimating and receivables.
    Additionally, I wanted to see the Gravely Z34. I like it. Despite the narrow appearance, the machine is stable and highly manueverable. I like the 15hp Kawi motor as well.
    As a side benefit, Houston has a Bass Proshop that my wife and I stopped in at. Also very nice.
    Email Gravely or visit their website for more dates on their Gravely On Tour.
    If you want, PM me your telephone #'s and I can fill you in better.
