Seems like the attendance is way up this year. With this being the last day, have you reached your 'saturation point'? It's usually an overwhelming show with waaaaaaaaaaay more dealers/newest tiles & styles/manufacturers/training/tools/networking opportunities to take in than you have time for. Running through the tool section is always fun! And who can forget to mention the random free shirts? Coverings really is a neat show that presents opportunities for just about anyone in the biz. This might sound like an advertisement to anyone reading this who hasn't attended before, but I'm saying it because it's totally worth going and it's a blast! I wish I could be there right now.

Any sightings of Trask and that Rogue child young man of his?

I have run into Trask and Rogue sever times in several places. Father is bringing up son in a proper manner as far as I can tell. I've seen Rogue at all the parties I've attended.

It was a great show !
Eventually you can’t help but bump into most of the best folks … I had one really long night that got a bit blurry … other than that we remained mostly well behaved

It was great seeing in you John. We go back a few years. It was a good show for Cody and I. We learned a few things. We were fortunate to have won a few awards for installation. Trask, i am happy to see Rogue and Cody get involved with the trade and the NTCA. They are our potential leaders of this wonderful trade. I know it has been awhile since i last visited the Forum. I will try to be more active. Take Care.

You may not know Joe Lima and Bill Parker (Rapid Recess, left) but I wanted to show the new mud ACT module. Lima (Lima Tile) and Mike Foster (Tile Trends, not shown) were part of the first group (4 total?) to take the test for this certification.

And, oh course, John and Cody Cox who won a CID award for an amazing tile installation for a children's healing center. Also shown is presenter Amber Fox, head of the 5 star program for the NTCA.4 minute youtube video showing work
