Greetings colleagues and friends,


There's still time!...


$94 room rates are still available at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown,
877-640-7666. $125 pre-registration rate continues through this week. A
recent check of plane fares indicate that a number of cities are still
offering low fares to Indianapolis. 


Check out the final Business Leadership and Superior Training, networking
and entertaining agenda at www.blindmerchants.org

educational experience still has room for more participants. Encourage our
colleagues and friends to review the agenda. For questions, 866-543-6808.
Looking forward to seeing many of you for our Indianapolis BLAST 09.

3.                  Blast will wind down with an idyllic Saturday afternoon
of camaraderie, hospitality and a little education. Easley Winery and the
National Association of Blind Merchants will take you on a fascinating look
at wine making and tasting. You will also enjoy a luncheon. Buses depart
