“The conversations you'll have will make you even better than you are,” Holohan says at his Web site HeatingHelp.com, where you can visit the online Bookstore to register. “Come and go as you please during the day. It's impossible to get bored at Wetstock.”

The cost of admission is $139, but there's only room for 150 Wetheads, so sign up quickly. As of this writing, 50 already have committed - most of them regulars to The Wall. Rooms at the Holiday Inn have been blocked out, but first come, first served. Mention Dan Holohan Associates for a special rate when you register.
