A short note to our 7th Annual Captains of the Deal Cruisers:
Our sincere thanks to each and every one of you for helping to make the 7th Ever Captains of the Deal Cruise an absolute blast! We realize the time, money and efforts that went into getting to and from Fort Lauderdale and we greatly appreciate your faith in us to host another fun, successful event.
Our group of 223 cruisers controlled 5177 properties, 2150 notes, and 96 options, so we were a bunch of Players, for sure! And we are so grateful to have so many Jack Miller folks on board again this year. ‘Miller Time’ was a reunion filled with laughter and tears!
We made new friends, shared some war stories, danced the nights away and ate and ate and ate together. It made us smile to see everyone enjoying themselves. We had a challenge finding a good, quiet spot for Lido every night, but Pete held court and no one outlasted him. The man is a monster! We knew there had to be some funny stories and serious deal-structuring going on in those circles!
And ah…..the Conference. Great information from Dyches, Pete, Bill and Dorsie, with terrific questions and input from everyone in the room. The Ted Talks from David Tilney, Mary Hart, John Hyre, Ann & Mark Lackey and Prentiss Yates were informative and interesting – thank you all so much! Your brilliant brains amaze us and we appreciate your giving, sharing hearts. The 8pm Town Hall segments were full of laughter and great information, and Friday night’s Exchanger Event will go down as the craziest, most fun event ever!
The 5:30pm dinners had 26 tables filled with our chatty, noisy group, and the conversations were fun and free-flowing. Everyone got a chance to sit where (and with whom) they wanted – which really confused the waitstaff, but we all enjoyed immensely!
We had such a good time and we hope you did, too. All of us – Dyches, Debbie, Bill, Kim, Pete, & Dorsie – appreciate you so much. A special thanks to Paula Lathem, Tonya Milligan and Debbie Boddiford for helping us during check-in. You ladies rock! Thank you all for being a part of something so special and for making this a fabulous trip. Y’all are an amazing group of sharing and caring people and we thoroughly enjoyed your company!
