    Loved this class. Thank you Sam for arranging these classes. Jean Totz is amazing; I am in awe. Can't believe the things this lady can do. I learned a lot, have much to practice and some gear to purchase. Everyone should do this class. The day was perfect the weather was nice warm and sunny all day. My classmates are all cool people and I we all learned much. Thanks again Sam. Thanks to Craig too. Craig that was the best watermelon I've had in ages.
