I was wondering how it went today. I couldn't attend due to a conflict between this and a club trip to a location I hadn't been to before. At least for me, finding something new at a new location for me won out! Hopefully I can meet some of the people at the Denver Show for the first time as I will be volunteering some of the time there.
