Greg Boone didn't show up? I thought these were all friends and family of his.

I was another fine afternoon spent with good people, remembering those upon whose shoulders we stand. I was glad to see how well attended it was, and as always I learned about some of the unsung heros of our business.

Nice job to everyone involved in the planning and execution.
