Spring Branch ISD has MSF in August (nowhere else does)

Ive called 5 different places and they are booked until mid september. Spring Branch Isd still has availability for their Aug 9-10 class (much sooner for people like myself wanting to hit the streets). Im signed up Njay1984 little brother might come as well as Oh!ThatGirl. Just letting everyone know where the availability is at since alot of the more popular places classes' are full.

Interesting, since our current schedule shows 12 classes with openings in August and even 1 spot for this week.

That's true, but he also said "the popular places classes' are full" and since we are the largest in Houston as well as a sponsor on this board, I wanted to be sure that everyone knows that we do have openings.

The comment of the title "nowhere else does" is also misleading as that would include us.

Wow, the lack of reading comprehension skills of the general public still shocks me to this day.

See if you can understand this:

I don't care where he or anyone else decides to take the course. If you want to get that technical, it saves me money if he goes somewhere else.

I do however, care when someone makes an UNTRUE statement that could potentially affect my company in a negative way. Somehow I'm fairly sure that most people would feel the same way.

The title of this thread is "Spring Branch ISD has MSF in August (nowhere else does)".

That is very simply, NOT TRUE. We still have both weekday AND weekend spots open for August. Yesterday, when this post was started, we had even more open spots, all of which were listed on our webpage.

I very simply attempted to make that fact known. I didn't say anything about where he chose to take the course, nor did I mention the comments about being "wait listed" or checking the website. I also made sure to answer questions about our pricing in PM's instead of this post.

And I'll say it again, if someone had posted an untrue statement that included your company, you'd do the same.

Man. It's how you wrote it. With the "interesting" and the ""

I understand you have a business to run. Every time someone asks where to go I always say "everyone liked their class at awesomecycles."

But this member knew others were inquiring about msf courses this month, and knew a lot of places were booked up.

Yes, he should have said WEEKEND classes. But instead of knocking him, maybe you could have just corrected him. Just seems like a better business practice to me.

Again I shall say, everyone I ride with that took their class there, tells me it was fun and very informative.

Ive called, left numerous voicemails. Someone did get back with me later that day but I couldnt sign up I was wait listed. Before I made the thread I checked the awesome site several times to make sure I couldnt get in. The site says no availability til mid September. Why is it that I got a call back to be wait listed instead of enrolled for an August course when I was ready and willing to pay? You say one thing (in that you have courses available) but your actions (calling me and putting me on the list) say another . Not trying to dog your company at all or make false statements as Ive held out almost 2 months trying to get with you guys but they (your company) has done nothing but put me on a waiting list (this being the second time). I turn around and call Spring Branch ISD and not only do they have availability sooner but cheaper as well.

The gesture was towards Racer X. I thought that was clear since I put it after a quote from him. Obviously I was mistaken.

I put "interesting" because I thought it sounded better than "you're full of " or "that's a lie", however, in retrospect, I could've worded it differently. I can see where someone might think I was knocking him, and that wasn't my intention.

Even if he had said "weekend" classes, the title still wouldn't have been correct. Once again, we still, as of this very minute, have WEEKEND spots available in August.

BRC Schedule

However, enough is enough, this thread has gotten way off topic.
