Have you ever had a “Snowball Fight in Florida” much less in July!
Well that is exactly what we plan to do! Come ready with 3 main “Fair” things that are weighing on your mind! We will leave the rest up to your imagination! Once we have had our “snowball fight” we will drill down and talk about what YOU want to discuss!!!! In depth!
The second part of the program will be on “Being Prepared….”.
Do you ever lay awake at night worrying about the next crisis you will face at your Fair and how you will handle it? Our goal is to get “down and dirty” to help YOU be prepared!
*Program will start at 2 pm on Friday and conclude at 12 noon on Saturday.
- REGISTRATION: - REGISTER NOW!
Registration is only $50 per person which includes refreshments, Friday night dinner, and a great program!
