Was also good to meet you. This summer with the new job has been a kick for me. I have met many a new friend. It also works well for me to have roots with many of the users. It seems that about out of every 5 groups that I have contact with someone knows me. That makes the job even more pleasureable.
I will be in touch as I am going to start putting together a plan for next season. With the loss of NOVA funds the FS will need much cooperation and coordination to help preserve the wheeling oppurnities we now enjoy.
