The comradery shared, the informative talks and lectures, the sharing of different ideas and and approaches on how to accomplish final goals you want to meet, Along with the time and environment to discuss it all makes this a quality event. So again a huge thank you to Jim,Judy, and to friends old and new that showed up.
