Yes, it has left a big hole for me as well. I am now looking to compete somewhere near that date to fill the hole.
I am currently working on getting a new competition together for 2013. It will not be in the park as I really do not want to deal with the city again. (They were the problem). I may also be involved in another contest as well. I am awaiting details on it as well.
I enjoyed having you there and I hope to bump into you at Washington in a couple of weeks.
