      A big thanks to Rennie Castelino for his initiative and effort in making this event happen.

      It was great to meet more than one faceter at a time when not in competition to score the same rough from a vendor. (That came later for some at the MGSCV show!)

      Hopefully it is the start of bigger and better to come.
