Glad to see you too Robert. Agree, in spite of clouds it turned out to be a fantastic event. Worth the slow drive through the fog. Thank you RASC and RAO

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.
