My Big thank you to FQI Neil Ross, Completion of Art Steve Russell for your help and assisting with the event.  And to Russ "The House" Green

It was really nice to train with all the group at the event and also individually it was my pleasure to train one on one on each day of the event.

I would like to thank my friend Bill Murray (FQI) and his family for welcoming myself and Richard to their home and the dinner that you prepared for us. 

We all miss you.
