True that!

I'm playing catch up here, but will try to post something chronologically.

Been busy the last few weeks, mostly work; but with the occassional, "Offsite Team Building Workshops" - that's what the tax guy calls it anyway.

So yes, to clarify, this event is history.

Eric, save some burnt controllers, you can give those as consolation prizes to the pilots who burn their planes in the line of duty...

Let me know how I can help (keg, cups, etc.)
