Act Fast to Save Paul-E-Palooza

paul gomezPaul-E-Palooza is an annual training event, celebrating the life of Paul Gomez, that brings together some of the finest trainers in the world for two days of lectures, training courses, and more. The proceeds from the event go to a trust that was set up to benefit the Paul’s children.

This is the third year of the event and enrollment is down which is hard to understand given the caliber of the trainers slated to attend and the cost of just $300 for the whole event. Unfortunately, the number of registered students is low enough that the organizers will have to consider cancelling the event if enrollment does not improve by Monday, July 20th. I would hate to see that happen to the event and even more so to the Paul Gomez children’s trust.

The event is taking on August 15th and 16th place in Garrettsville, OH. Garrettsville is easily accessible via I80 which makes it an easy destination to reach from all over the Mid-Atlantic and many of the Mid-Western states.
