Seconded! Like Bill said, Jeff(!), Evan, Tony and crew, Adam, Dave, Dan,
all the exhibitors, and everyone else who helped out but was not part of
the "official" crew, really pulled together like I have not seen
previously​, and made this a very impressive event. It's very gratifying
working with you all and being part of such a fine organization.
