I'd rather hear they are cancelling Christmas this year but I totally respect your decision! I cannot imagine the effort and resources that have gone into the Round Up, I expect it could be nearly overwhelming!

Will and Peggy have set a standard in hospitality and generosity that would be hard to beat! The experiences, friendships and the knowledge I have received are priceless!

This doesn't mean it rid you of a certain shop lizard though...

I have to agree with Gando, I'd rather miss Christmas than your meet. The news is disappointing, but understandable, and I would not try to change your mind. Having put on three small meets myself I know how much work they are, I'm not sure I'd be up for the effort to put on even one large meet like yours.

I'm happy that I was able to attend two of your events in the past, and sad that I missed the last one. I've made many friends and learned a ton during your events. Many fond memories!

You've given me planning assistance, great ideas and a standard to strive for in my own meets. I cannot thank you enough for all that you've done for me.

Will, I'm sorry to here this. I know how much you enjoy yours friends and like minded people. This must have been a difficult decision. I hope our paths continue to cross at other meets. I think we all agree that your happiness and friendship are important to us, so is your involvement in our group!

Really sad to hear this Will, but I completely understand. The two I got to attend were a real treat.

Thanks for the memories!

A thousand thanks for putting on the previous roundups.

I met a lot of real good people and got reacquainted with a lot of old friends.

I especially enjoyed meeting and talking with Kent. Learned quite a bit.

Your efforts will not go unrewarded.

Will, I attended two of your events and they were both wonderful, and rewarding. New tips, new techniques, but mostly new friends.

During my travels I am often asked about you and the Roundup. I have told many that you are a "good ole boy" GENIUS. Your understanding of suspensions, and related technology goes far beyond that of most "experts".

Thank-you for so many wonderful memories, and here's hoping we make more, but in different venues.

Glad I was there once.

Thanks Will and Peggy for putting this together several times...
