    Count me in Alex. Repetition is the key to learning, and I plan on learning something.

    I talked to Gene for a second in Ventura and he told me about it, I was like a kid in the candy store after that.

    I know times are tough but if you can afford it do it. If you don't do this you WILL regret it.

    Last year I won this piece in the raffle at the end.

    Thanks again Alex.....

    I was there both days last year, and can tell you with complete authority, this is something that you absolutely do NOT want to miss.
     
  21. I want to go again! So much fun. Maybe next time.
