I am thinking about heading to Vegas in February for the Ala Mode seminar for using Total. I've been using it for years, but my partner has never used it and we think it might be worth while.

Besides do ya really need to good excuse to run to Vegas for a weekend?

The question is, have any of you attended one of these for Total and was it worth the time?

Thanks,

I haven't but a colleague in town has, three times and really thinks it is beneficial. He now uses the "worksheet" heavily.

I would like to attend one, but it is the middle of January and they only have a couple dates listed. Makes scheduling hard for anyone who has to plan in advance.

I have used Alamode for years and have never attended a seminar. If you have any knowldege of the program, a class is not really needed.

Tim,

Thanks for the feedback, but if you have never attended the class how do you know what you're missing or if it is needed?

We started using total in 93 or so and have used it ever since, but I would assume that there will be some new information or a new "ah ha".

And of course it's in Vegas Baby!!

Rob - when you get back, could you let us know what you thought of the time spent at the class? (and how your time at the tables turns out) It would be great to hear from someone who is taking it this year. Thanks

Judy and I were scheduled to attend one in Detroit last year but had to cancel due to work load etc. We will be going to one during the first 6 months of this year.

From what I hear, they are well worth the price of admission. I'm looking forward to finally getting enough info to get Pocket Total up and running.

I attended one in Denver about 6 years ago, loved it. Have been trying to go for the last couple of years but work load makes it prohibitive. Sent my assistant, she loved it! Unfortunately not approved for continuing education in Colorado at this time.
