About the event

This years event will be held for 3 days in beautiful Bismarck, North Dakota!

Day one - On day one we take everyone onsite to shadow our install crew (Valley Borders).  We will do multiple jobs to show all aspects of a working crew and many different curbing situations that we can't show in a normal basic training.  This is a great opportunity to see what each crew member does, how they help each other, and the efficiences needed be a great curbing company.  If we have time on this day after the installs we will get everyone together to talk about the finer aspects of a curbing business such as marketing, pricing, employees ect.  This will be a laid back open ended discussion with some of the best curbers in the industry.  

Day two - This will be a full day of basic training.  Anything you may encounter on a jobsite with your own crew.  We go in depth throught the whole mixing process, the ratios, sand, admixtures we use and why.  Your trainers will explain fully how to operate a curb machine (sting), trowel and finish the curb, inside and outside curves, tree rings, stops n starts, cutdowns, colors, roller stamps, islands, corners, and anything else that is needed.  This is a full hands on event so most of the curb that is mixed and put on the ground is by the attendees.  We will have multiple machines and trailers/mixers so everyone has the opportunity to curb.  In a setting like this we will have upwards of 1200-1500 ft of curb on the ground and go until you feel you've had enough.  There absolutely isn't another curbing event like this on the planet, not even close.

Day 3 - For those who are staying for the Advanced Stone course this is your day.  We go through all aspects and techniques of creating your own stone.   Typically this day ends around noon so if you have afternoon flights on Saturday you can make it.  The full 3 day event is the cost of the Borderline Carve Kit.

What is the Rendezvous and how did it begin?

- Several years ago we decided to get as many curbers together as we could to exchange ideas and help new businesses get started.  It was such a success that we have had it every year since.  We try get all our national trainers here for this event, 10 guys from all over the country including Canada.  The amount of knowledge and experience here to help you is unmatched.  Three Extreme 20 curbing trailers with 6 Stings and 6 Piledrivers to accomodate everyone.  

What do we do?

-  Our main focus will be on those who are new to curbing or have recently started their business.  Breaking up into groups to make sure that the ones who need help get it.  We will be running multiple machines and mixers so you can get the machine time that you need.  Alot of the powerpoint presentations we had previously will be conducted in more laid back discussions to make sure we get everyone ample time to train.  We will have many trainers here not only to help in the physical aspects of curbing but also to answer business questions and offer their knowledge.  These guys come to help us from every corner of the continent and we consider them our Borderline Professors.  They have over 200 years of combined experience and are willing to share that with you.

-  We really appreciate all of the support we have been given since the rebirth of Borderline in 2017.  We hold this event to show our gratitude to all of our past customers but also the new friends we will make in the business.

Where do we go?

- There is only one airport in Bismarck and its 15 minutes away from Borderline.   The metro area is very easy to get around in and there are dozens of hotels in the area that are within 10-15 minutes drive of our facility.  I will list some of the closest ones here so you can book the one you want.  We leave the room accomodations up to you to find one that suits you.
