Great crowds, great service, and quackos in every shape and size. A lot of the folks there were newbies, which makes for a brighter future for the sport. The BC folks did a very good job publicizing the event. Radio and TV spots, print advertising, and even a BC ticket giveaway at the hockey game I went to last week. It's about time someone in this sport did something right.
I think everyone had a wonderful time, even my wallet (although reports are that a wheelbarrow was required to get one lucky DMFF member's money out to the car). Thanks especially to Vince for securing the choice seats and possibly the finest pepperoni this side of Naples.
Oh, and no breakdowns and no BS steward interventions.
And thanx for allowing me to drive my Prius again. Those BC seats were FANtastic, especially at 17% of the regular cost we paid. Churchill next year may be a different story.
It was great meeting everyone, especially folks I've never met before in living color, like the gorgeous MoeGray and former horse ScoreQuick.
