    Nice walk in the park. We had many young and able-bodied people who took control and did the heavy lifting. NFTB had five reps and I think the outreach was good. Nice event at one of my favorite areas of Florida. The Talbot Islands are spectacular.

    Jim, glad you can make it. Have not seen you in a while. Has anyone heard from our fearless leader Cary B? Do not see his name on the list.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
