Jim,

    I totally understand, they wanted to make sure they got all their value from Da'Man!  I know that I'd be doing some traveling in the immediate future as part of my business.  There's a company in Georgia that I'll be visiting with, so we'll catch up eventually.  I'm actually surprised a local dealer called you in, as people in this area are very resistant to change.  I'll let you know when I'm heading down your way.

Thank you for the friend request.  Why were you in Elmira a few weeks ago?  Man, I would've loved to chat with you.  Maybe the next time you're in the area.

OK. No Sales Pitch, just the truth. What can I expect from the Dealer Internet Battle? How is the schedule laid out? I know enough to be able to discuss these topics, but not enough to turn them into profits for my dealership. I do NOT want to attend, if its going to be a sales pitch to attend all of the speakers individual events. That happens too often. Why do I NEED to attend this event?

My pleasure. You are someone I have heard much about and feel I can learn a lot from. Your knowledge and experience will make me able to offer the support our dealers deserve. :)
