Received your Right Hand Technique book this past Thursday. I'm heading back to the drawing board and back down to 120 bpm. I had already started some bad habits you touched on early in the book. Better now than later.…"

Nice to hear from you. I may try to get back to Winfield in '09 when I can compete again. I'll see if I still feel young enough to do it by then. Y'all watch out for tornadoes down there.
