James said to say Hi and thanks - he's been back to school for almost 2 weeks now. He's been having to do homework in the evenings so that he can get Friday and Monday off. It was great meeting you too Joe, and seeing our midwest friends again. Ed puts together a great contest.
I really am not privy to the boards availability. This is a pretty informal deal, no travel budget, no payout for magazine covers or even a written agreement, for that matter.
It was mostly that Mike liked the tech that James and I developed through last winter and asked if he could use it. I said - sure if you put James' name on it.
I know that Mike was trying to source the blanks and I believe he has that under control now. You might ask one of the reps or Mike himself about the availability.
