Sorry I couldn't hang out out at the meeting tonight.... needed a wing and beer night (ugh stressful day). So, I just dashed into the library quick like to return the Marc Petitjean Magic Head DVD. I did not want to get in troubles with Jerry. OBTW, those Magic Heads are the poo -- get some and watch this video!




Anyways, I was quite impressed while I was downstairs to see all the new tyers there. Dave and helper (sorry missed the other members name), did a great job on tutoring -- I listened in for a bit, and solid instruction was being given. You should be commended on your efforts!




PS - Mmm.... wings.

Sorry I missed joining you last night, Scratch and Lance. Unfortunately I was in T.H.'s for another reason and couldn't join you. I've missed the wing and beer thing at Runways. Wiyh everyone going to Timmys all the time I've not bothered. Maybe we can make it another time.
