NTCA training

Well we have the great fellows of the NTCA coming to town next week for a night of fun and a little training. But today I was wondering after 25 yrs of searching out every seminar and school and Knowledgable tile people, and not to mention bustin my azz for $4.50 hr when i was a youngin carrying mud all day, I wondered how many more jobs am i going to loose to them snot nose, HD trained, my last job was a paper route, so called tilesetters. Starting to get a little agravated. Any way I wouldnt miss a free lunch with my buddies. John

Dog Paws,

I was thinking of going to that one in Cincy Tuesday night. Have you been before? Is it worth my drive from Indy?

Pat, I've been to NTCA seminars in the past that have always proved to be worth every minute of my time. The seminar Tuesday night is only going to be 3 hrs. So I'm guessing it's going to be quick to the point.
What caught my attention was that one of the topics is going to cover the installation of 20x20 porcelain tile. I'm interested to see their recommendations.
I wouldn't hesitate for a sec to take a shot down 74 and attend this class.
