Debi Wexler and John Pollard at Pricescope party.


I agree Texas Leaguer. One of the great things about the get together was that both the consumers and the professionals got to spend time together. I am not sure I have ever actually met James Allen before and I enjoyed meeting Jim and his wife. John and Debi both worked together at WhiteFlash before John worked for Infinity.

I hope that the consumers in the room noticed the degree of camaraderie that the professionals had with one another too. Many think we are all fierce competitors with one another, and we are, but we are also friends. That is a big part of what makes Pricescope function as well as it does.

Hi Everyone,

Thank you everyone for all the wonderful words. We are very happy that everyone has enjoyed the party. We had a wonderful time too. It is always a pleasure to meet with members for the first time, see others again, meet new potential members and the see our sponsors. It was amazing how everyone got together from all over the place and it was like they have been Best Friends forever. :)

I also wish to thank the sponsors for there wonderful door prizes.

I have just got back home from my travels and catching up things. I plan to post the pictures we took of the event.

For all those that got a door prize, It would be great if you can take a picture of you modeling the door prizes and post them for all to see.

Awwwww, I am having wonderful flashback memories!! I could write a novel about the evening. When I get that new computer for the house, I think I will do just that. :snore:

I am already Saving The Date for next year. :tongue:

I want to say again that it was such a pleasurable evening getting to meet and spend time with everyone. I wish the evening could have been longer because I did not get around to having conversations with all who were there. My fault I know because of the BLING :love:

A great big thank you to the PS staff, wonderful vendors and the door prizes.

I do have a request from PS that the date for next year be announced as early as possible to allow all who would like to attend time to make plans.

That is a great idea, bright ice - it is not out of the question for us to travel to Vegas from Australia, but having the dates early is a real necessity. Otherwise I get carried away dreaming up holidays to other places! I really MUST make it next year though, it looks/sounds like such a fun time! :bigsmile:

Perfect idea, bright ice!! I would love to attend as well and as our anniversary is at the end of the month, if I knew well in advance, I may be able to convince DH that an earlier anniversary trip might be sooooo much fun!!! (well, for me, anyway!!! tee hee!)

No, Enerchi, you go to LV as a late Mother's Day trip and go somewhere else for your anniversary in late June!!! ;))

Gosh, this makes me think I need to get some new spectacular bling before next June. :naughty: :bigsmile:
When in doubt....don't.

I have been checking out this thread and i hadn't made any comments so far because i was (and still am) green with envy :Up_to_something: :mrgreen: Oh, guys, i'm so jealous!!! Everybody seemed to be having a great time! Thank you so much guys for sharing the pictures and the feelings and the memories with us! I feel that i am a galaxy away from everybody here in Greece! I wish i could have been there! And it's so cool to see the faces behind the usernames! Skippy you are so so so cute! And Gypsy looks totally different than i thought! Hehe, for some reason i imagined her blonde with a very fair complexion!!!Hugs to everybody :wavey:

For those not aware it has been a long time tradition in the industry to make a deal with a handshake.

Here is an example of when you need to resolve an issue. I am under an NDA to say who won. :)

Wow that looks like so much fun! I guess I keep thinking I need a wad of cash to to justify flying to Las Vegas with all the casinos and -more importantly - gemstones to buy.
But the get togethers with other pricescopers and professionals look like a blast!

Just curious if any dates have been set? I love to plan *WAY* in advance (plus I have to factor in the 'convince DH we need to go to LV EARLY in June" to my planning time frame!)
