The seminar is a basic class. The floppy was designed to give help and build interest in the things a computer can do.

Many of our Timber Industry people simply know nothing about computers, or are scared to use them other then very basic stuff.

I don't know if I have winzip.

How would I be able to find out? Is there a place to download it from?

Rav,

Send me your snail mail address, and I will send you the actual materials I put together for the class, including the Floppy.

You can get an unregistered functional version of winzip from www.winzip.com.

Well, I have been told by everyone involved that the computer class went extremely well. There was also alot of interest at our display for the Timber Buyers Network.

But to top off the convention, last night at the main banquet and meeting. The director of The Michigan Association of Timbermen, Peter Grieves, told us during his opening speech, that there was a new presence in the Michigan Timber Industry, and a new player in our future. He then proceeded to introduce me, I would say, to over 500 attending members. It was totally unexpected, and I about fell on the floor when he asked me to stand. After that he went on about what I had been doing for MAT, Mfra and here, but I was so stunned I don't remember much of what he said!

As Timberbeast would say DAGNABIT where is a tape recorder when you need it. Congrats, it's nice to be recognized in front of your peers for all of your hard work.

Something tells me that your going to get alot more members from MI. in the near future, just think of all the knowledge that can be shared.  :)

Great job Jeff
