Hey guys, don’t forget if you want to watch VCF West live and work on some of your projects at the workshop, then you need to sign up.  

Believe it or not, I will actually be there all day on Saturday and not just swinging by for an hour or so. I finished my “Honey Do” list so nothing will be keeping me from showing up.
