MOMVIII will be held this year in Athens, GA. The date will be November 7th and 8th and we have a very cool format this year. We are going to tour TWO parks and this will be a great time for all. The price is…FREE.
We will be viewing John and Daph’s Park Madison Woods and David Protiva and partner’s Park Las Casitas MHC. The tentative schedule is as follows:
Friday 9 AM we depart from the hotel on a chartered bus (or two) and will first tour Madison Woods, grab a quick lunch, and then we will tour Las Casitas. After returning to the hotel, we will have John and Daph have a short answer and question session about some of the things we saw at their MHC that day. This can include financing, bringing in homes, landscaping (you are welcome Rolf), anything at all. David and his business partner will do the same with their new community. There will be a fully stocked bar there where drinks can be purchased by any and all and a full time bartender (not me).
Saturday there will be a typical MOM format with the following Speakers:
Alexander (My hero) L/H packages/ IT Guy, 17 years old (any questions?)
Rolf Jacobs (Park Owner) and landscaper
Rick Ewens Park Owner, mod on MHU
Jamie and Paul Richardson Park Owners ( father and daughter and very cool)
- Clayton bank rep (Rusty)
There are still three slots available, Daph and David will fill these by September 1. I won’t be presenting this year (nothing but booooooring stuff from Florida this year) LOL.
I ask Tony and Scott, Steve Case and family, Fred Balke, Ryan, Lonnie and Joanne, Lin, Jim and Ellen and ALL the regulars to please make the trip…this is gonna be a GREAT MOM.
Some of you may recall I discussed a Sunday optional meet for some and I have dropped this idea. There was tremendous response for it, but the negatives outweighed the positives for me and after much soul searching (and I mean real soul searching) I will leave this for another time and another place. There were some truly dreadful e-mails I got and make no mistake I like a scrap, but to offend ANYONE is really not my nature. I like to help and teach…two of my strong points (I hope). There are folks on this and CRE that feel strongly enough about his, that after the year I’ve had, I’m out of strength to fight the good fight.
I realized that if even ONE person did not attend MOM because of a spiritual context of a portion of it the entire intent of having this segment would be greatly diminished. I am sure I will receive some heat for this retraction as well. I
