I thought I would post this here as not everyone is a member and can’t get to the members only section.
Dateline: Nov 27 2005
After having to wait for a whole week to get the second part of Bob And Helen's presentation I can say it was well worth the wait. We couldn't get two consecutive days in the same location so had to book the dates a week apart.
Last sunday CATS gave us 6 hours of electrical instruction and it was very interesting as there was alot of hands on training with all sorts of props to play with. CATS brought in a trailer load of panels meters and other electrical gear to go through and we all learned a great deal about what to look for when inspecting the electrical system in a home.
This week Bob brought a load of windoes to show us and, although I have been installing windows and doors for years, I was amazed at how little I know about what I was installing. A person can never know too much about this business and in my estimation when you stop learning it is definately time to hang up the tool belt and pack it in.
Although the turn out was not as good as expected I am sure no one who attended was disappointed as to the level of education provided.
Even the food was good.
So with that thought in mind I will leave you with this thought. If you have a chance to attend one of the CARAVAN seminars, do it, you won't be disappointed and you will learn, as I did, learning is an ongoing process. Besides it doesn't cost you anything and you will have a good time doing it. Bob and Helen both are very good at what they do a I highly recommend the CARAVAN to all members.
I will leave you for now and hope you all have a good week.

PS, Chris, please get spell checker up and running again. This looking in the dictionary stuff is too time consuming.
