hey guys... hate to drudge up an old thread, but it sure is on topic!
Listen, I'm (probably) going to the Dells event (June 10 to 12) and I'm tagging on a few days at the end of it to do some installs in NC too. I'm going to be driving down to Seattle and flying from there. I probably can't do anything on the way in, but on the way back I can leave a day to do installs if anyone's interested. Likely the 16th but I'm not exactly sure on that yet.
If interested, I'll do the same thing for you guys that I'm doing for NC. That is this (warning: math ahead): Everyone at the Dells counts toward the discount tree structure
. Everyone at NC (minus two) also counts, thereby lowering the price everyone pays!. Everyone at seattle (again, minus two) will also count! So just get three or more people and EVERYONE pays a lower price in WA, NC and WI!!
Right now we have 8 people signed up for the Dells and 4 people signed up for NC. That means 8 + 4 (-2) = 10 people count toward the The Dells discount structure
, which means everyone (in WI and NC) pay only $470 installed. You guys can hop on board. If one or two join in, then the structure doesn't change, but if say 4 Seattle-ites are committed, then that would work out to: 8 + 4 (-2) + 4 (-2) = 12 total participants, bringing the cost down to $460 each INSTALLED!
Let's dream a bit. Let's say everyone does a good job of spreading the word and getting as many people interested as possible, I see this as feasible: 12 at the Dells, 6 at NC (4 count toward the discount) and 6 at WA (again, 4 count) then that gets us to the maximum discounted price of only $380 each installed!!
We'll only get to that if people spread the word well, and time is running out.
I should also note that the whole thing is only a "go" if the Dells folks get at least 10. I'm sure they will. NC has a minimum of 5 (but I'll probably do 4). There's no minimum for WA since I have to go there anyway there's really no extra travel costs. If only 1 or 2 are intersted then I don't even have to stay the night.
I'm also open to making stops in any town along the I-5 North of Seattle.
