Hey Don,

Looking forward to it myself. I had a lot of fun and a great class last year.
My lighting/digital class at The Texas School is the only week long class I'll be teaching during the year.
If any OurPPA members are at the school, be sure to find me and say "Hey".

We are SO excited to be coming back...(Ok, the threats involving cattle, skunks and the boot to the butt were pretty intimidating too!)
Seriously, TEXAS SCHOOL is amazing. We had the most incredible group of people as students last year.
I don't think I ever laughed so hard and who knew that line dancing was so fun!!
Don't worry...We are still going to make every effort to cause trouble! (The Duct tape has been ordered!)
Looking forward to the mayhem,
Sam

There is an "official " time clock on the web site, so you can see when the clock hits midnight.

Good luck

Best wishes and hope you guys have a great time!

Don, why does it take three weeks to get the class lineups; I can't wait that long!!!
:D

we will try to get them out sooner, but we have to run 800 credit cards, assign the classes, call when people miss type the number, answer 100 plus emails a day...... all while trying to run my own studio. Since Texas School does not have any employees, it just takes volunteers longer.

I promise I will try to hurry

see ya'll soon at Imaging

:D

Don't bother Don with questions right now he is assigning all those people to all those classes, and updating their computer records, and checking credit card transactions, and coordinating the schedules, and...., and.... :D :eek: :D Seriously though, it is a tremendous amount of work and the phone rings constantly with people asking questions or for confirmation of their class. It just takes time to get it all processed.

EDIT: We must have been typing at the same time!!

I am the "Wrangler" for Janine Killian and Karen Peters. Karen is Larry Peters wife and Janine is his daughter. At IUSA I saw that our class is already full. So there will be two sold out Peters/Killian classes this year.
