I can' say very much right now but yesterday I flew to Denver, Co for a meeting. Its not all 100% dialed in but looks very positive.
This change will enable me to help do some great things for Pool and hopefully have a positive effect. Seem like we have so much negativity in the pool world these days I am excited to looking forward in a positive way.
Sorry this post isn't very informative and means nothing to 99% of you butI just wantedto say something. I am sure if all goes well I will be be ack to explain more.

In all seriousness though I wish you the best. I bought the decider a few weeks ago, and enjoyed the heck out of it. Consider me a supporter going forward.

Thank you guys for your kind words an support. It means a lot to me. I started meetings today at 10am and left the meetings at 10.30pm so its been a long day but got a lot done and a little closer to the goals and being able to tell more. This is not a tease or anything like that I wanted to respond and thank you guy for your support. I will be begin meetings again in the morning and hope that I can tell more after that. This will be good for pool, I am not promising the 'Answer" or the thing that will save pool but it will be a great start and at least positive for a change. Thanks again to you.

I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 1,000.

No, I'm not asking you to guess what it is. I just felt you should know.

I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 1,000,000 - you get one guess at it, I will pay a dollar if you get it right.

Ok, the good news is that all went well today and I have a bunch of things to do and I will be VERY busy. The bad news is I have been asked to not say anything until the press release comes out on Monday at the latest.
I am afraid I may have built this up to be more than it is but I feel it will be a great opportunity to make a difference. There will be a constant stream of new info in the next couple of months that will explain my excitement and the positive things I am looking forward to.
Its been a great couple of days and head home tomorrow, I still have some things to do in the morning and have to be up early although I feel like celebrating tonight. Better wait til I get home :)

Thanks again for you guys well wishes and support.

Mark,

If you move to Denver and setup shop where big tables reside, please try to get it involved in Joe Tucker's American Rotation league. I have a room willing here in Colorado Springs and we have 6 people so far who are going to participate.

Thanks guys and gals and Bryan for putting up he link. I didn't realize it was up and started another thread and then came back to this. I hope I can make a difference. There is more to come on this that is good and positive, it will be released once we get a little closer.
