Congratulations gentlemen!!!!  :F

Ya know - I also want to say "Thanks Again" to all of the Red & Green hats at January's IBC.  Not only has it helped to give the Orange hats a jump up, it served the more important goal of helping us all polish our skills.  Plus it's always fun to get to know each other better.

Thanks, Scuzzy! Planning on doing great things here in San Antonio! Thank you for all you and Ghostring have done to help get this program set up! Now we need to have some folks don some orange hats down here!
