MOM VII Meeting

Gonna try something a little different this year for the Meeting Of the Minds meet this year. We are going to travel a bit out of our usual stomping grounds and go north to Troy Alabama.

Jim and Ellen Brenn bought a very nice turnaround Park last year and if you read the blogs you know they have been kickin’ butt and taking names to get rid of bad apples and turn the Park around. They have graciously agreed to co-host the event this year. The format will be similiar to years past.

Friday will tour their park, Friday network and eat etc., and Saturday have our meet. We will see some new faces, but the folks I have included to speak so far are.

  1. Jim and Ellen Brenn (co host and personal friends)

  2. Dave and Betty Jackson (Park Owners and personal friends)

  3. Fred Balke (Park owner and personal friend)

I am trying to get a finace person, A real estate Broker that specs in MHP’s, a single mother purchsasing SS units (maybe a little to much info? LOL)and a hard money lender here also. want to speak? Call me. i am giving a lot of the regulars a day off…I want them to come and just have fun. I went to MHM this SApring and it was soooooo nice to kick back and network.

Ellen sent me the following:

Holiday Inn will charge $76.99/room per night

Every 25 rooms booked will give us one free room.

They will give us a free meeting room.

Breakfast is served 6-9:30 daily

Dinner is served 5-9 daily

They will serve lunch on Saturday for us.

Their telephone number is (334) 566-1150

They want a signed contract, and will block off rooms. I estimated 100? They want a credit card to hold the rooms.

Holiday Inn Express is next door and they can handle overflow.

I blocked out 50 rooms today. If you only need a room for Friday night (or Thursday and Friday, etc.) the rate still applies. I f these sell out I will grab another 50 rooms. It is critical to get the rooms now. mention MOM meet and discount applies.

These are cheap rooms…the same room here in FL is 109. There will be some free rooms and I have private investors that are happy to help with cost of food, gas, etc. please email me or call me if you need help getting to the meet…most of us have needed a hand at some point in our lives… there is no shame in that , there is shame in forgetting this fact.

These meets are for the newbie…they are also excellent vehicles for finding funding and networking with folks actually doing deals.

I host these to give back what has been so gladly given to me. The cost of the event is free. Pay for rooms anfd food is the cost of the event.

Greg, I’m all set to mark my calendar, but which Fri and Sat should I reserve?



MOM will be on November 2nd and 3rd! We are looking forward to having everyone here in Troy and showing off our property. Bring shoes to walk on our undeveloped property on Friday! Help us decide what we should ultimately do with our 21 undeveloped acres…all ideas greatfully accepted!

Also, the Troy airport is next door for those of you with your own airplanes…closest commercial airport is Montgomery, which is about 45 miles north of us.
