Abacus had texted that to me and I got word on the early morning hours of Tuesday when I got cel service back while returning from a trip offshore and almost did not believe it. I was like, Me? Seriously though, I humbly accept the honor even though it still really hasn't sunk in yet
I kind of thought it odd that VDub and PeterV sent me PMs weeks before the event asking if I was going to be attending. I had no clue then but now the pieces go together. If it were not for my unpredictable work schedule, I would have stayed the entire fest. The bidding wars at the banquet I'm sure were quite entertaining. Again, Thank You.
