For those who may not have noticed, Masonclaims.com had a recent makeover. Part of that makeover came in the form of adding a calendar of events. In creating the calendar, our programmer inadvertently left a test event on the calendar entitled "BBQ Out Front!" which he forgot to remove after completing his testing. Mason's adjuster friends not being ones to disappoint us, one man saw the BBQ event and decided he'd like to partake of a little Mason Hill Country hospitality and so called our own Holly Pierce to make his hunger known and find out the details of the shindig. She of course had no idea about the event, and after exchanging a few jokes about her not having been invited, she found out the true source of the calendar entry.

Mason Claims salutes you, Mr. Wayne E. Jones, for pointing out our error to us and for being such a good sport about there NOT being a BBQ on the front porch! In return, Mason Claims WILL buy you some good Hill Country BBQ at the upcoming 10th Annual Mason Continuing Education Conference, Sir!

Hope to see all of you there as well! It's going to be three days of non-stop fun, fellowship, and food. And of course, you'll also get 15 CEUs as well. Register now! Seats are going fast, and at this low price, it's no wonder!
