Thanks Dave...it's been a bit of a chore not really knowing what we were doing but the end result will be enjoyable for all I hope. Still some more details to get finalized but working on it. Adam's help was a major factor in getting this accomplished. Always a big help having someone with experience in doing these Gatherings. Saved us lots of time! Thanks Adam!

I made a couple adjustments to the agenda (above).  There may be a few more tweaks coming. So don't print anything out just yet.

Are we there yet!?!?
