Having been encouraged in the strongest possible terms by both Alan Bernstein and Peter Weigle to make the trip I was finally unable to refuse when offered free passage! For this I am incredibly grateful. I could not have dreamed up such a fine time.
It was a complete last minute afterthought to bring my Hetchins (blue Magnum Opus curly) and my head is still spinning with the two awards I got at such a premium event. (That definitely more than made up for a really bad bus trip from Connecticut.) I'm only sorry there wasn't more time for getting acquainted as the friendship, comradery, and cheer seem to hallmark this event, and after meeting Dale I now see why. His hard work, and that of his crew, have been offered with such goodwill. Thanks Dale and crew.
Thanks also to my sponsor, and to Brian, Alan, and Mike for their work in preserving our love, and to Ray, a delightful chap even when uncovering fraud!
Hope to see many of you up here at Larz too!
Thanks again, Al
