►    I think I am finished ordering grills for the season, because we have more than enough to last us.  So don’t assume something is coming in just because we are out.

►    A customer bought two chairs for $209.99 each, one minute apart, to use the Reward$ coupon twice.  NO, it says right on it use this just once.  That doesn’t mean once per minute, it’s just once!

►    I just put out an other Season Wrap-up Poll to the people who have not yet submitted the previous one.  This one has an earlier-deadline:  August 14.  I want to be able to react more quickly to them; particularly for those who are leaving soon.

Remember if you want some or all to anonymous, make a copy of the blank and turn it in without your name.

►   We now have two Accu-Mats in stock; Pool Table Measuring Guide.  They are for rent on the Rental and Sample Loan page.  And, like fabric swatch books, they can be taken for 72 hours for free as long as you still fill out a Rental Agreement  and take a refundable deposit.

►     Wow.  I am already getting some great ideas on improvements for next year.  Please keep getting me these Seasonal Wrap-Up forms.  Than you very much.

►     From Patrick: for all employees going to college or returning to school, please let me know the date you are leaving and what you would like your last day to be.  If you are returning to high school please let me know what your availability will be.
