It’s Saturday, and like most Saturdays leading up to our free convention, the Road Rally, I’m at the office taking care of hundreds, maybe thousands of little details that make the Rally great.
Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick will be our Llifetime Achievement award winner and Keynote interview.
I was searching my computer for a particular letter about the Rally I could use for something else, and I came across this page of quotes from members who came to last year’s convention. I re-read them, and was instantly inspired to keep slugging away today. I want this year’s Road Rally to be the best ever-that’s always my goal!
So, I’m going to share these quotes with you because the Rally is only 4 weeks away, and if you’re flying in, you really need to book your flight now to get a cheap fare! So read what your fellow members have experienced at the Road Rally, then check out the info below. Enjoy!
