Hey SIMA guys...

My partner and I are going to join SIMA. We got the membership info in the mail and after looking it over (and hearing you guys sing their praises) we feel joining is worth it. <p>However, we are busy full-time (24-7 just about) during the green season with our lawn service. So we can't attend any seminars offered down in the states. For those of you who have attended before, do they provide you with written materials that accompany the verbal presentations. Minutes of the meetings if you will. Having paid the same dues as everyone else (actually a hell of a lot more when the CDN exchange rate is factored in) we'd like to get the same info. <p>Perhaps we might get someone who is in attendance to fill us in additionally on what was discussed. Maybe even videotape some of it for us?<p>I know we can also ask the SIMA organizers about it but I thought I'd ask you guys first.<p>Thanks.<p>----------<br>Dave in S.Ontario<br>www.cutntrim.com

Don't forget i don't have to worry about lawns. I like to take my vacation in the summer, its less stressfull than in the winter. There are also too many darn out-a-state people in maine in the summer ( sorry guys). My vacation only last 3-5 days max, everyone needs some kind of vacation, or you will go nuts. Oh yea July 9 i will be at the Winston Cup race in New Hampshire, so i guess i am really luck this year.<p>Geoff

Hey Dave,<br>Last year they had a written format for all the speakers, however this year they are having 3 concurant speakers at any one time, the best bet is to call Tammy direct at SIMA and ask her.<br>Dino<p>----------<br> Professional Ice and Snow Management <br>Products:Services:Equipment www.sima.org
