Wish I could make it out there earlier than late Friday night. I'm going to miss some real nice demos.

Watch a demo live and up close doesn't get any better. Learn all the nuances in making the pen that are just not shown often. Have fun people and take photos. Also put some names with the photos so we can get to see who is who.
