Guys,

I couldn't dodge the the "man" any longer. Being in the Mobile Home, RV industry is not the best of fields to be in right now. Today was my day to take the hit. I'm not looking for any sympathy because my situation is no different than millions of others in the same boat but I did want to get the word out that my e-mail address and 800 number will no longer be any good to contact me since that was my office information.

When you get let go they bring you cardboard boxes and watch you as you pack so all the current and previous Fest information along with flyers is gone. I never really thought about a back up plan and I should have known better but it means starting over. It will take me some time to get my head back on straight and to see if I can even keep Fest going. If you need to contact me you can still send messages here and my home number is still 269-699-7573.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Mark:)

I'm sorry to hear of this situation Mark. The only thing to do is to keep the chin up, and stay positive. You strike me as a guy who can rebound pretty well. Let us know if you need anything.

Mark - We all understand, as it has hit industry after industry across the country. It's ok to get some sympathy, but don't wallow in it. While I have a job right now, I've been unemployed before, and your faith, your family and your friends will help see you through. Thanks for sharing this with your friends on this board - there are many. We understand that you have had a sudden, major change of priorities, and only ask that you check in from time to time to let us know how you are doing, and how we can help.

Mike

I feel your pain Brother!!!
Happened to me not long ago after a sixteen year run with the same company. Only difference was I had to supply my own boxes!

Your family and freinds will be athe greatest source for help, and I've always found that these things have a way of turning out for the better in the end.
Good luck, and if there is anything I can do, please LMK!

Sorry to hear Mark. I hope that a new and better job appears for you in the near future. As far as Fest goes I am sure with the caliber of guys you have helping you out that the show will go on.

I'll second what Nick said.
Seems the axe is falling all throughout the country. I work for a nonprofit health organization, but we're no different from any other business in this economy. The axe has been slicing and dicing throughout the organization for the past several months. My department hasn't been hit yet.......
Keep a good thought and the best of luck to you.
