Schedule and Seminar Agenda

Note from Dave:

I CANNOT EXPRESS ENOUGH THAT IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE NEED AS MANY MEMBERS ATTENDING THESE SEMINARS AS POSSIBLE. THE PRESENTERS ARE THERE FOR YOU AND TO GIVE YOU VALUABLE AND UPDATED INFORMATION AND TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS. IT IS GETTING VERY DIFFICULT TO GET THE PRESENTERS TO COME AND PARTICIPATE WHEN NO ONE SHOWS UP FOR THEIR PRESENTATION. EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT THAT INTERESTED IN THE TOPIC THAT IS BEING PRESENTED, EVERY MEMBER SHOULD ATTEND THE SEMINAR OUT OF COURTESY AND RESPECT AND TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR THE PERSON WHO IS GIVING UP THIER TIME TO PRESENT THE INFORMATION TO YOU. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU MIGHT LEARN!

See you all on Tuesday, February 15th!  DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS EVENT!

Any COVID restrictions?

Updated: Our group doesn’t have any restrictions. I’ve also reached out to Lazydays and neither Lazydays nor the state of Florida have any vaccination requirements, mask requirements, or other restrictions related to COVID.
