I am right next to the woman in the green sweater (grey beard). What a fabulous experience, and I would love to do it again! I was at the Chicago seminars this past weekend with a lot of FT airplane nuts.

Especially the discussion about the award calendar that showed a whole month of green

But, seriously, it was an amazing time, and so far no other event has really come close to that level of awesome

I have a grey beard (and grey hair) and am next to (left) the woman in the green sweater. The woman in the green sweater does not have a grey beard! Canarsie, your thinking capabilities have really deteriorated in the last four years.

I don't know what could have deteriorated more. They were pretty much in shambles back then - however he does seem to provoke more groans in The Lounge these days.

That was a really great event the likes of which we won't see again.

An often used quote is "Best Field Trip Ever."
