Thought I would give a shout out to Scott W. and Interlink San Diego for putting on such a great class.
Best class I have taken in some time ( OK....1st. class I have taken in YEARS );)
But I have been around, and in 35 years, I have had my share of....Put the tape in the machine, and shut the lights out, and I'll be back in 40 min. kinda class ( that's where I learned to snore ).

When Scott say's " hands on " he means it....We took road trips...Met Dave Nichols @ his place of work.." Rug Renew "....This guy lives and breaths rugs " from around the world "....Got energy to burn ( I was sweating just watching him )...

Then on to " golden rugs gallery "....Jason the son of the owner ( family owned since 1968 )...Took his time to show us all kinds,types...and rugs worth more than that summer home you wish you had.
Met Miss Cynthia Kosciuczyk...If she can't answer a question about rugs, well...I'm now sure who could...Vast knowledge in her and the people we all got to meet, and pick the info we need.

Special shout out to " the cobra " Doug Heiferman for his willingness to give of his time so that others may learn the right way of doing business.

The staff of Interlink San Diego were wonderful...and this midwest guy felt right at home.

I would 5 star the class, the instructors right out of the ball park.

Greatfully Yours " Big Papa "

Thanks for the kind words Big Papa. Everyone seemed to get a lot out of the class.

I was planning the San Diego class to be my last one. But, a few folks are urging me to do one or two more in 2019. Birmingham and Nashville are possible locations, but nothing for sure.

Maybe you didn’t see my response: “PHOENIX”
Lol, seriously I’d love to take a class and meet you in person. Have a great day my friend.

Say it isn't so Scott. I still want my wife to attend a rug class of yours and Doug's.

Phoenix!! Agree!

I agree with Big Papa, Class was the best educational experience of its type I have ever attended. Everyone you meet treats you with dignity and respect. I kinda felt like you found a team of people rooting for you, and want you to succeed. Many times when there is a group of guys egos get in the way. Not here, the instructors Scott Warrington and Doug Heifernan keep it on subject but fun at the same time. For myself it took a long time to save up the funds to head out of state. I was very hesitant to go because for us every dollar counts. It was worth every penny. In a sense it wasn’t just about cleaning “rugs” it was more about becoming a professional in the field.

It also gave me a different impression of interlink I didn’t have before. I thought of them as a big company, and I was a little guy. Meeting the San Diego Manager, and all their staff, they felt more like old friends. Never felt like it was all about making money and selling. Weird it felt like a team behind you there to help you grow. I thought class would be like a Commercial always trying to sell, sell, sell. That wasn’t the case at all!!

Granted I didn’t leave a rug expert by any means. But I have the guides, notes, and now industry contacts I feel confident I can tackle jobs I couldn’t of dreamed of before.

It was so educational and encouraging I signed up for another class come dec.
Looking forward to meeting Big Papa again in Dec and hopefully more members.

We have done the west coast. Need give the east coast guys a chance. I don't think Phoenix will happen.

Johnny - You can come to Nashville or Florida. Two will fit on the motorcycle or just a plane ticket for your wife.

No black Fridays. We have not been able to do this the last 3 years. But, we do have some great sales items in the latest mailer.
