    Hi Brian, congratulations on your climb to success, and continued climbing. I wish I could have lived vicariously trough you a little longer. ;-)I’m glad to see the work you and your Dad have done is being put to use and hope it is a great success. Is there a shortened version for Season 2020? 🙂 I greatly look forward to seeing you again!
