It was an awesome event. Very informative and totally awesome dancing, especially by Kyle and Price who we haven't seen featured much. Hopefully more to come.

Doug, can we have this event every year?

Doug F, or one of his colleagues, generally does at least one substantial lec-dem during the year -- we are very, very lucky here.
