 Letter From the Professor - May 8, 2008

CAP Spring Break set to close Tuesday
The resorts are primed and ready, the party planning details are finalized, vast quantities of beer, wine and liquors are rumbling in by truck now. Many of us have already begun packing. CAP Spring Break Cyprus is set to shatter all records for our yearly gathering by the sea. You have a couple of days left to reserve your spot in the sun then registrations close on TUESDAY. We do NOT register new arrivals or walk in’s at the resort so this is definitely the last call. See you on the beach!

Lyndsay Update
If you have been following the heartwarming story of Lyndsay Harmon, age 28 who has lupus and had a severe allergic reaction to meds you’ll be glad to hear she’s stable and making progress each day. The bad news is Lyndsay will spend nearly four months in the hospital treating the severe blistering and skin loss she suffered from head to toe. As you might imagine the financial costs for her family are staggering. A special Lyndsay Harmon has been established and is being administered by Senior CAP member The Captain. If you can lend a hand, a prayer or even a few lines of encouragement please join us here.

 Manager's Corner

SineadSinead, Paddy Power

I've been working with Paddy Power for the last three years. Previous to that, I worked for a Middleware company in Dublin as their Marketing Exec. So, I was a total rookie when I joined Paddy Power, hadn't a clue about affiliate marketing. I learnt pretty quick, thanks to a few trusted affiliates who showed me the ropes. I studied Japanese and Marketing at college, which are of no use to me at all in Paddy Power. I have to admit, I am a total nerd and love my job. I get the chance to meet so many different people, and go to some great places for Affiliate Events.
