[Buzzing Stops]

Keep that in mind if you're traveling

anywhere from Aspen...

over to, uh,

the Denver-Fort Collins area.

Winter weather.

Blowing snow also.

You could have very light snow

with an overcast sky,

the wind starts blowing around

even when it's light.

That means very poor visibility.

Be prepared for that.

- It's gonna be a cold night.

- [Clattering]

[Airplane Approaching]

I'm sorry, everybody. My plane

was delayed. We rerouted to Atlanta.

- I'm very sorry.

- That's why they invented

airport hotels.

- Right, guys?

- Correct. Right.

- Coffee?

- Yes, thank you very much.

That'd be great.

I've been on the go

since Monday.

I'm telling you, I hardly had time

to eat the peanuts on the airplane.

Okay. I know

I've held you guys up,

and I've got another flight

at 11:
00,

so I'll cut

right to the chase.

Our development guys love

the growth rate in this area.

And the marketing people are incredibly

pumped about labor costs, real estate,

all the potential spin-offs

into the ancillary service areas.

- Is that mine? Why, thank you.

- You betcha.

So, we would like to bring

some of our folks down here...

to look at possible construction sites,

talk about labor costs,

the work pool.

Now we're gonna need your help

with environmental groups,

Iocal zoning boards,

state-level lobby types, et cetera.

Something wrong?

No. It's just, uh...

[Chuckles]

I-I-I'm not sure what

you're talking about.

The park.

The theme park. Uh, Pilgrim Village,

U.S.A. [Chuckles]

This is the Poultry Retailers

Association meeting.

[Laughs]

Oh, gosh. Uh, well, then I must

be in the wrong room.

Wow. I'm... very sorry, guys.

I was just in such a hurry.

- Hey, shit happens.

- Yeah, yeah.

Anyway... Thank you.

Thanks for the coffee.
