We had a fabulous night at the End of Season Dinner. It was so wonderful to see lots of familiar faces and meet some new ones! It was great seeing everyone out of lycra for a change too! 🙂 The new venue was spectacular. Hopefully everyone in attendance had as much fun as we did!

We will be doing a little CSS test for those who need it. Nothing horrible or scary.. just the data I need to ensure I program the beepers so you can get the best out of the session for YOU!
