You mentioned "roughing up" the grip on a wegen. I thought of that once, never tried it. I use a TF120 w/out holes for stiffness.

Thanks Art! Your kind words are very much appreciated. That was Robin Bullock and Joe McColley outside that night and it sure was a ton of fun. I'm glad you were there and enjoyed it too. I look forward to this year's SKAK and I hope to see you there. Roberto and I are firming stuff up for April/May and although I don't know if we'll be able to take advantage this trip on your offer but I thank you for it. It's good to know there are supporters out there!
Mo sends her holiday best and we hope your '09 is healthy and happy and filled with inspiration and good notes.
