Century 21 Awards Banquet in Hot Springs Arkansas

I just returned from the Century 21 Awards banquet in Hot Springs, Arkansas. I think everyone that attended had a great time - especially my office, Century 21 Exclamation Realty! The energy was intense... The weekend consisted of... Friday night our office gathered in the lobby/bar at the Arlington for cocktails with Marcella and Jimmy Hagan (C21 Exclamation owners) and the 30 some agents that attended from our office. Then we headed to where our banquet was going to be held on Saturday to set up for our skit (Horse racing...) and practiced... Funny Stuff. Check out the photos from the practice run below.

After finishing that we danced the night away at the Arlington until the band finished then about 10 of us headed down the street to Capone's - a cool little bar just 100 yards from the Arlington.

FINALLY went to bed! Wake up call will be in just a few short hours! (OH NO!!!)

It's Saturday!!! Off to a special brunch for all of the Century 21 crew! Now for the SPIRIT COMPETITION... We got to go first! It was so great - real funny.... And a crowd pleaser for certain! Two other companies presented and then we listened to Paul Sweeney - the Regional Trainer for Century 21 Real Estate, LLC.

                          OFF TO THE HORSE RACES!!!!

Jerry and I won $.60 at the races - but had a great time... now time to get back for the BIG awards Banquet! Social time with all of the wonderful C21 Agents across Arkansas first (I got to meet a fellow ActiveRainer - Tinker! - she is such a sweetie!)...

Arkansas Awards Banquet - Century 21

Dinner TIME! - surf and turf style - only the best for C21 (we are "The GOLD Standard you know...)...

YEAH - Awards time... Century 21 Exclamation had 3 tables full and every time someone from our office got an award it was like the room went crazy - screaming, cheering - lots of excitement. We know how to have fun that's for sure!

After the awards Marcella and Jimmy had us up to their Parlor Suite for a celebration of their 40th wedding anniversary. What a great time had by all - Hot Springs thanks for having us!

Thank you ALSO to Marcella, Deborah & LaVeta for being such awesome leaders!!! YOU TOO Jimmie! I feel fortunate to work for such an awesome company and I just don't understand why some other agents in Northwest Arkansas haven't figured out that C21 Exclamation is the best company to work at!

CENTURY 21 EXCLAMATION is the absolute BEST!

Can I ask you what program you use to make the UTube slideshow? 

I am having trouble uploading my virtual tours to UTube or maybe I am just slow to catch on LOL

Thanks for sharing,

Thanks Marilyn - I used Adobe Premiere Elements 7 for this one - Windows has a free product that is pretty simple to use and uploads easily to YouTube - sometimes I use it instead. Adobe offers a lot more features but really Movie Maker is a bit more user friendly... and you probably already have it on your computer - unless you own a MAC - but they have an even better free product... Good luck - let me know if I can help with anything!
