A start-up's journey is riddled with sales pitches and poor information that can have detrimental effects on a business.

Ugh! I'm having an emotional tug of war between FOMO and my distain of flying domestically.
Although recently I'm starting to feel equally abused by TSA, ICE and underpaid domestic flight attendants.

Will we be learning to clean different stone, and Tile or combo? Will we have an opportunity learn about wood floor care, specifically more then just adding a coat of protection to still protected wood? will there be an Awesome raffle again?

I suggest you bring more then a Driver's license as ID to Arizona. They are known to set up check points deep into the state and you will need to prove your citizenship-- EVEN if you are white-- although less likely.
Any bleach spots in hotel or RMH that will need attention?

In going to class in July ans can bring the dye kit and will be ready to do some color repair!!!

Any other Dye Lotters going? We could have a team. @ShortyDownUnder
Cool. As of now Robert Atlas and I are on it. He's already registered for th Fest.

I posted on the Dye Lot to see which others may be going. This could be a little break out session/demo if your up for that.
Do I need to book directly with the hotel to get our group rate? Do I need a code or link? can I book online?
Do we get the primo rate even if we come in early? I plan to be there Monday evening.

Who plays on Monday Night Football? Where are the best sports bars? Any live bands in Old Town? Is there MB Racing at night? :shifty:
If we rent bikes by the week can we bring them back to the hotel? Can we bring them to the pool area? Hey, I'm asking now so I don't get in trouble later.

I'll have the link within 24 hours according the the contract I just signed and paid for.

The RZR rental guys says wait until august to reserve vehicles. They dont have as many as you'd think so stragglers will have to go elsewhere.
