With Lisa's blessing, I wanted to share this video with you all.

Ian came out with Lisa to the Live Wildcard round to cheer Connor on and give him support. It was great to have them both there. When Ian returned home, he was excited to share his trip with his friends...
unfortunetly, they gave him a hard time because they didn't believe that he was friends with Connor :angry:
Well, We took a little trip to Ian's School while we were in NJ, and spent 4 hours doing demos for the entire school. Ian and Connor have never flown together before this day...and nothing was planned...but as you can see, there is just nothing better then seeing two young men who love what they do , sharing it with others, who are now true believers....
