Well from the airport all I can say is wow, there was just so much going on that even I could'nt keep up.......Posted Image Everyone was so helpful and gave of themselves
for the entire week and a special thanks to Dave E. of the Decs. and the boys from iQuad for all the help with lessons and keeping me going even when I was in
so much pain I could'nt see straight....Posted Image What really was a sight was to see the grid and we may have not made the 100 but we still set a world record of over
60 and what really happened is we learned what works. Felix, J.B. and Steven H. really put together a great set up and ran the Rev field like champs, also a special
thanks to J.B. on the mike cause he really out did himself and to tell the truth I was impressed..... I mat have not been in the field very much but I sure created
many new fliers and for that I'm happy, I love to teach.....Posted Image So when I get to my desk I'll do a better write up on the event........BenPosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

PS do not forget Connor on Americas got talent today so vote....

Hi Ben,

It was great to be with you at the Rev House. Did you find some more Lavazza?

I'm looking forward to your write up on the WSIKF event. I am travelling to Portsmouth in the morning with memories of 2008 very much on my mind.

Best wishes

Felix
