Sitting here eating breakfast this morning and thinking how great the BBF Seminar was yesterday. I listened to each guest speaker, with amazement and at times mesmerized of the information they presented. Each and every guest speaker offered advice and information that was very informative, and covered a broad range of topics! When you can sit for 8 hours listening to different people speak of their respective expertise and not be bored or even notice the time, that's entertaining at the least, and educational! To say the least, I enjoyed the BBF Seminar very much. There was a good group of people, an excellent facility for such an event, and I hope it was convenient for all geographically.
One speaker who I really enjoyed because of his life story, was Rick Smith. I met Rick many years ago when Lem, Roger and myself were at Dayton,Ohio during a drag boat event. Rick was very young then and seemed a very down to earth guy like the rest of us. How little I knew, the genesis he was and is! I had heard of Rick's hardships over the years through the grapevine, but I never realized the extent until yesterday. Rick became a bit emotional during his presentation, understandably so. It furthered my opinion about a few people that I have come to find out in the last five years or so, that wasn't very nice people at all! I tried to talk to Rick afterward, but he was a popular guy around the room, and he seem to be enjoying his visit at the BBF Seminar, so I decide not to interfere just to say hello and thank you. Thanks Rick, and Charlie.
I would like to thank Charlie, Lem and all involved for providing a great opportunity for such an entertaining and educational environment. Thanks to all the guest speakers, for great presentations. Thank you Adney and Dave for the much needed coffee!
For you guys that wished you had attended, and for those who elected not to come, if this event happens next year, make plans to attend. It was great!
