Default Re: I'm Coming Home

Was at the much smaller Summer NAMM in Nashville this past weekend where I was pleased to MC and officiate the WFD Finals on Saturday. The hosting gig was kind of last minute seeing as how I had not been a part speed drumming for over 3 years. Actually it only went down a couple of weeks ago. But it turned out to be a good decision. I did some good side business on the trade room floor which was a big relief and it was really cool to see Boo McAfee and the old gang. They dedicated this year's comp to Jim Chapin which made sense considering how many comps he had attended.

A very talented guy came all the way from Sydney Australia to win the new hands title and had set up his participation as a fund raising campaign to fight cancer, where he lined up people back home to donate for every official stroke. What a great thing to do ...and seeing as how he won the finals and set the Australian record in the prelims, it was a succesful weekend for everyone...and for all the right reasons.

OK...now on to the next step.
