You have to be there to understand!

I have run the Dragon event for three years, and am handing it off to others with more energy and some fresh ideas.

But not to fear - Monday after the event, my wonderful wife and I met with a realtor, and we have found a property in the area that is of interest to us for retirement. So who knows? If my 401k doesn't turn into .0401, I may be able to become a local up there in a few years...

Your investment of time, energy and even money is not to be ignored or downplayed, and though I have passed the baton to others that would like to keep things going (and improve upon my meager efforts), I doubt that your efforts have come to an end, one way or another.

And while I will accept the homage, especially from someone like Ken, I gotta say, in all truthfullness - you can throw all the parties you like, but if no one shows up, you just have a lot of expensive leftovers to deal with. And considering that it isn't just western NC and eastern TN (and northern Ga) folks coming to the event, it makes it even more special.

I can only hope that we can get MBUSA to give us the help we need to get the word out, to make more and larger events possible. While you can (apparently) put a price on customer relations, you can't put a price on the friendship found and given at these events.
Please accept my apologies for not including you in my Kudo's to Gary! You have been an important part of all that many of us have done as well as to SCOA. I simply wanted to publicly thank Gary for his three years of effort toward the Dragon which has been an exceptional effort on behalf of the community. He, I and many others also know how important you have been to that event as well as many others so I am sorry I was not more explicit in including you and your efforts.
