Had a great time on the cruise and met a lot of great members of the CLA. It was nice putting faces to JohnH and Bodman and many others. Talking to owners and manufactures was very interesting and I walked away with several ideas to help market and improve my store.
Thanks to the CLA and the sponsors for a great time.
You are missing out. The opportunities to network with other owners at this level are far and few, so anytime you can get to a conference, local meeting or the CLEAN show, make the time and take the trip.
I understand the CLA has a real good price on rooms in Vegas for the CLEAN show in June.......
Maybe we can schedule a get together for Forum users at the CLEAN show so everyone can get together and meet each other face to face.
I will be attending the clean show in Vegas. However since it is so close to home I will be commuting to and fro.
It would be a great idea for CLA to sponsor a meeting place after hours and also perhaps a general meeting for all members. It could be in one of the side rooms or they could rent a room from one of the hotels.
Hay why not a banquet or shrimp night. Its been done before in Vegas. I have attended several with other organizations. I would pay extra to attend!
I would welcome meeting each and [u]everyone[u] of you.

I think a mid-afternoon luncheon meeting would be fun. Maybe it could be in the restaurant at the Las Vegas Convention Center. It could be dutch treat since I think that restaurant is a buffet style affair. We would have to somehow reserve an area though.
Maybe some of you have a better idea? This was just off the top of my head.
