Default Lawn Care Tele-Conference

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a Lawn Care Business tele-conference. I have this program I use on the farm that we could use. I'd be willing to take meeting mins. I gusee if we do it it should be set up something like this:

-Intro
  1. Name
  2. Location
  3. Business Name
  4. Username (GopherHaul Forum)


-Discussion 1
Topic: Going into the Spring Season (Peak Season)
  1. Business to-do
  2. Equip to-do
  3. Client/Customer to-do
  4. Other to-do

-Discussion 2
Topic: Current state of the industry
  1. Current benefits
  2. current problems
  3. Future

-Free Discussion
Remaining time is general talking

If we wanted this to work I'm sure we would have to set up a common time. I was thinking 6:00pm EST this Friday. Does this work for everyone before I set up up.

If you are interested.....

Steve, Please PM me so I can talk about making you an administrator for this call (if you would like to be one...)

That is great!

I had tried in the past to do this on some of the podcasts.

Why not experiment with it and see how it goes?

If you have to pay for long-distance calling I would reccomend either using a cell-phone, or try this: http://www.phonehog.com/registration_b.asp

Since everyone is all over the map and we all have internet access, why not use Skype as it's free to everyone

There's also BlogTV maybe we can name it GopherHaulTV and even though you don't have a webcam, everybody can participate to the chat and maybe Steve can be our host

I have mentioned this before but nobody is listening to me
