Majeske / Majewski

I was at a trade show the other day and someone named Majewski came by the booth. I didn’t talk to him, but it may have been more than a coincidence. What do you think?
Our family name was actually Majewski back in the day. My father changed it when he was a young man. He said he wanted something that was simpler to pronounce as he had many people mangle the original as he was growing up.

Not sure I could change my name.

Animal Planet Expo Tour

Greetings everyone. As most of you all know I am working on the Animal Planet Expo tour. We are coming to a close, 2 more cities, and I wanted to share a few photos with you. These pictures got us into the Event Marketer magazine and the staff of the magazine came and worked our event in Farmington, CT over the weekend. Actually, I never saw them work at all, to my knowledge the came late & left early and did no heavy lefting. Oh well. I am in the photo but as usual I am purposely looking away from the camera. For some reason I still think that is funny. I have been doing it for years and I have come to believe that I am the only one that still thinks it’s funny. Congratualions to all those who are pregnant or have recently had a child, you know who you are. Enjoy the rest of the summer.

Official Results from today’s HHHunt Power Sprint Triathlon!

Unofficially, according to prelim results, I came in 2nd in my age group of 12 entries. I don’t know why my swim was a minute slow…..the bike wasn’t bad……the run felt like I was bobbing up and down and not going forward because my legs were so tight……there’s always next year and who is gutsy enough to do it with me???? A team????

Animal Planet Expo Tour

Greetings everyone.

Happy belated mother’s day to all those who are mothers and to the hope that you had an enjoyable yet relaxing day.

The purpose of this email is to give you all the schedule for the Animal Planet Expo Tour. What is the Animal Planet Expo tour you say? Well I am here to tell you it is a huge extravaganza! If I can quote J. Steven Pulick, “it’s all about the kids.” There will be professional face painters, an mc, free PepsiCo samples, a bounce house for the kids or really immature adults, an inflatable alligator that kids race through, a theater with a film & an animal exhibit, a bug house, games & all sorts of giveaways. You can also bring your dog or cat and get a free pet tag! Sounds pretty terrific I know. It will be colossal, 400 x 400 sqaure foot area, fun & educational because the Animal Planet channel is brought to us by the Discovery Channel & those people are almost asbig in education as the Learning Channel.

Now, May, June & July are set. The weekend of August 5th & 6th we are scheduled to be in Boston but since old beantown was a late addition, the exact location has not been finalized. We are scheduled for Hartford, CT the following weekend but we don’t have a venue as of yet. For all those familar with event marketing, this means that these markets still have time to fall through & be replaced with another city.

You can call me at 860 810 6890 or send me an email if you have any questions. Once the Boston, Hartford & Baltimore locations get finalized, or changed, I will forward the information.

This schedule also ensures that I will miss the Fourth again, 3rd time since 2002, and most likely the Riverfest, although there is a slight possibility that I may be able to show up on the Monday or Tuesday afterwards to hang out if there are any hardcore people still hanging around. Sorry, but you all should be getting used to this by now.

To Miss Jennifer, I will miss your last show but I will day this, you can’t do a a few shows while you’re 8 or 9 months pregnant? Thanks.

To my friends at ignition, inc., who have Coca-Cola as a client, I am in charge of the PepsiCo tent but will not be partaking in any of their samples because my attorney reminded me that I swore a blood oath to Coca-Cola over 4 years ago, has it been that long?, and the statute of limitations on that is still alive.

Hope all is well with everyone and maybe I’ll get to see some of you when we hit or come near your town! Take care!

What I’ve been up to

Good afternoon everybody & how are you today!

I know it’s been awhile since I last contacted you with anything worth while. This email is no exception. I just recently finished up some work for Bacardi and I wanted to share with you what I have been doing for these people. The 1st photo shows the RV I was driving around. The next 2 photos are of me & some “Bacardi Girls.” These ladies take their jobs very seriously and are consumate professionals, despite what the outfits may say. I have a few more but I don’t want to overload the memory on anyone’s mailbox. I leave Sunday on the animal Planet Expo tour and I will forward a schedule whenever I get it. Take care everyone!

Respectfully,

Chris Bence

P.S. As usual I encourage any feedback, jokes or you just want to make fun of me please do.. If it’s really funny feel free to let everyone else in on the joke.
