Will announce the Charlotte 401 room resort details in the next few days. 1-2 others to be announced this year - "sooner rather than later" (Northeast US & Georgia?). I like the new resorts as they have refined the model for maximum return - (also in non-competitive markets) Adding additional revenue drivers in existing facilities (conference centers, entertainment and food) Conference facilities take advantage of slow occupancy periods. 1Q 2007 lost 1 week of spring break vs. prior year (7.7% of quarter and potentially more from a rev. perspective). New ad campaign starting 3rd week of May - Doner (Great agency, they did the Mr. Six ads for Six Flags) New NBC deal. Ohio waterpark quality issue cost 1Q over $1MM in revenue. 3-4 deals in immediate pipeline.

I'm a fan. Love the Y/Y comps for the balance of the year.
