Just want to tell you guys the banquet went great. Wife and I both loved the food.

Jay's idea to hold the awards in the seperate room was a great idea.

Now if you can control the rugrats...

the kids have always been a real situation. we have as a board in the last ten years, sent letters, asked them at the hall, going out in the crowd and talking to them, and many other things to try to get the parents to have the kids settle down or at least not run loose and wild all nite. Now granted last few years we haven't had any damage (thankfully) since 4 years ago d-17 wasn't welcome at that hall and we had to pay damages and the like. ONe of the reasons for jay's recomemdation and my support was to seperate the awards to the other room to make more fun for the recipeints.
ALL in all it seemed to go well, little more tweaking and it can be really cool.
glad everyone had a good time.

one thing about the banquet and the whole deal is that alot of it is about the kids, its just a pain when people show up and think that they can let them run and jump on everything, touch everything and romp like its a playground at recess? Thing i won't ever be good at is a babysitter......hmmmmm


wardy
there is a reason stays home on that nite so far, i haven't figure out how to slow him down in a smaller area think what kind of speed he could get in there!
