    Sounds like a great line up! I'm bummed I won't be able to make it. It's too far away. Having it in PA last year was so convenient for me (bad weather and all)! I hope everyone who goes has a great time.

    Oh, Linda, you have to come. I was hoping to show you all the information for the 'All About Hanoverians' seminar you are hosting next fall.

    Also, the Symposium is NOT LIMITED TO AHS MEMBERS - ANYONE CAN ATTEND

    I haven't ruled it out yet, but I've got my hands full here...with backing Riley, going through the L-program, and running the NEDA Spring Symp. I do need to get together with you though to go over details for the hano seminar!

    Linda and Mary Lou,
    Its a long flight, so I'm using it as an excuse to visit (at last) the beautiful Pacific NW. I found a $207 r/t flight to Seattle (only a 3 hour drive or a $30 train ride to Portland), and I'm renting a car and planning to see the sights (in additon to lovely West Coast Hanoverian horses).

    I wish I could get away, Dennis, but will be stuck here with a dog that is recuperating from surgery. Until she's back to normal in mid March, I am staying close to home. Have fun, everybody. I'll be there is spirit.
