Winter Conference Wednesday!

Hey all, I’m hoping to see many of you this week in Grand Rapids at the Winter Conference and Annual Meeting. That sounds a bit formal, so how about I also hope to see you at Wednesday’s Poker Tournament and Pub Crawl!

Come in early and play Brewers Celebrity Poker. Starting at 4 pm, in GP Sports, we’ll have registration, poker, snacks and beer. Not a bad way to start. We’ll be playing a No Limit Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament with a $30 buy in. We’re even legal! You’ll certainly be eligible to win valuable prizes, especially the green paper ones, but we really want you to come and fight for the bragging rights. Sign up by 4 pm, we have a 50 person limit.

The Pub Crawl starts at 8 and is generously sponsored by Kent Beverage. There will be two vans shuttling us to the various beer bars of Grand Rapids. GP Sports in the Amway Grand is home base. Registrants get complimentary buttons that get you on the bus. Guests may buy a button for 2 bucks.

Thursday’s schedule is located uner “fest info” here

We’ve got killer speakers and a delicious dinner planned. All of the deadlines have long since passed, but if you’re not signed up and planning on coming you must email Shan IMMEDIATELY, or we won’t have a seat for you at dinner.

Hope to see y’all soon!

    Great, great conference. All early returns are positive. Except for those from my liver.

  • Here here! I’m glad y’all enjoyed it as much as I did. I’ve got a lot of ideas churning for next year already. I’m also posting a link to an article in the Grand Rapids Press. Thanks for checking out the Mash! Cheers.
