So, guys, we went to a speakeasy after the present to rejoice and have a grimy martini and it was fabulous. And it was a bit secret door. We needed to put a code in it was on the Statlar Lodge. It was a lot enjoyable.

James Ellsworth: And probably the most memorable half I felt, was that to get in you needed to know some esoteric historical past. And to know that the code to get in was the 12 months the world First World Warfare began. And the truth that the Titanic was a part of the North Star liners.

Karen Edwards: Okay, I’ve to say {that a} spotlight of the day for me was being on the Patrick Carr Present podcast. I had no concept who this man was.

And he listens to the Weekly Mix with Heidi and I, each week and mentioned we give him the within info on what's occurring within the trade. And I couldn't imagine that folks really watch the Weekly Mix. I do know they do.

Tim Ellsworth: I had an individual come up within the sales space right now. And it was the most effective expertise I've ever witnessed. I handed them these new bumper stickers we now have which can be all in Spanish and he nearly dropped on the bottom. He was so excited and so pleased to have this occur that somebody appreciated that side and acknowledged the Spanish-speaking individuals within the trade. And anyway he's taking that again to Louisiana. Yeah, he was from Louisiana. And yeah, he was nice. Yeah, that was my that was my spotlight of the of the commerce present.

And he was type of saying he didn't see lots of the sphere employees who’re those who’re really putting in roofs. And I see so many individuals on the roof at these reveals. And instantly what popped into my head was, SRS Distribution. They’ve a Para Latinos lounge, that they had a Para Latinos pleased hour. On Tuesday that they had a mariachi band, they are embracing this. And that is the place our trade goes. And I used to be tremendous excited to see that. 

James Ellsworth: Karen I couldn't agree with you extra. 

Lauren White: James and I once more, wandered across the present ground. We obtained 9,393 steps in right now, we didn't fairly hit 10,000 nevertheless. Nevertheless it was so good. As a result of it was a quieter day, day three is often quieter, obtained to have extra calmer conversations with individuals as a result of not everybody was crowding to speak with them. And what was cool too once we had been recording, we had been having interviews within the cubicles to placed on social media and promote afterward and switch into articles. However what's cool too, is that folks from these firms had been filming us filming the interviews to placed on their social medias. So there have been simply cameras and telephones in every single place and it was surreal. Nevertheless it was nice and we had the chickens. The chickens made their debut on day three, examine the rooster out on TikTok, aka ChikTok, as a result of Chuck is making its debut and it's superb. And now James will get to share extra concerning the present ground.

James Ellsworth: I totally loved with the ability to speak with the oldsters on the ground and listen to from the individuals about what they had been seeing, listening to from everybody about what was vital to them. Additionally seeing the brand new issues we had Equipter give us a full demonstration of their rig up and down left and proper ahead and again. It was fairly a scene. To not point out, we had a number of demonstrations from Franklin Worldwide's Titebond product, Tropical Roofing Merchandise, Chem Hyperlink. However we had nice conversations. RESISTO talked with us about their merchandise.

Lauren White: Vicwest was additionally nice. We obtained to see their steel shingles and steel siding that seem like wooden paneling and wooden shingles. They even have slate and so they're introducing clay nevertheless it's all made out of steel and it appears to be like so sensible. James has extra as a result of he was very enthusiastic about this.

James Ellsworth: Properly talking of slate jogs my memory of the Slate Roofing Contractors Affiliation who had a man on the ground crafting a slate roof, crafting the shingles on the ground with a drill and a hammer. After which on the finish of the day only for enjoyable made a hat and I adore it and it was fantastic. And he additionally made a bit ornament that mentioned "Find it irresistible." It was nice. And Lauren obtained to sit down down with a fella who was in Russia simply earlier than the invasion.

Lauren White: Sure, I did. Him and the gentleman who was making the slate hat, went to Russia to be taught onion dome steel roofing and so they had been the primary individuals from the states to go over there and be taught that method. And the household who hosted them, remains to be protected fortunately, they're nonetheless involved. However that was a really attention-grabbing dialog. So keep tuned for that one.

Karen Edwards: Properly, we introduced the chickens out. It's the final day of the commerce present. We introduced the chickens out and they’re a lot enjoyable. They’re a lot enjoyable. It simply it brings you even nearer to your neighbors. And need to commend Will Riley from Centerpoint Join on his beef jerky, this sizzling and spicy jerky. All of us had some. It was superb. 

Tim Ellsworth: The flying chickens are all the time enjoyable on the third day since you deliver them out about two or three hours earlier than the present closes. And it's only a type of enjoyable time. The present is slower all the time on the final day. It's a enjoyable time to get to know your neighbors a bit bit higher. And it lightens the temper and all people has a smile on their face once you fly a rooster 30 toes or 40 toes to your neighbor's sales space and it hits them within the head or wherever. And so they go, 'What the heck occurred?' 

Lauren White: I’ve to say another factor, that is my third IRE and so they hold getting larger. And I'd say that is most likely the most effective attendance simply when it comes to individuals attending and cubicles, it was an enormous ground. Everybody we talked as to whether it's within the soundstage, within the sales space or in their very own buyer cubicles, everybody was thrilled with the end result, very proud of who they noticed and the way many individuals had been there. And I imply we're exhausted. Heidi is already in mattress.

Karen Edwards: Half our workforce is in mattress.

James Ellsworth: Sure. However we had a good time we have nearly no extra swag left. And we're able to go residence tomorrow or go exploring Dallas tomorrow.

Karen Edwards: I’m on a flight tomorrow morning. Driving in Hank the tank to get there. I've been right here every week and it's good to go residence to household and pets and normalcy. As a result of it's loopy. Whenever you're on the IRE. You don't even know what's occurring on the planet. You don't know what's occurring in what you are promoting. You reside on this world when you're right here. Linked however disconnected as Lauren says it. Nevertheless it's exhausting. It's tiring. We had a great time and but we nonetheless get stuff finished. So, signing off. Sleep nicely.
