This year I finally got to attend the TCAA event in Oklahoma City. Oh, what a time I had! The members' works are inspirational indeed but even more so are the personalities behind their fine art. As busy as their week was, I found them very gracious and personable toward the little guy like me. I finally got to meet Chuck Stormes and he took time out of his busy day to look over a few trees I brought. We had a small crowd gathered around my car passing around trees. Among them were Chuck of course, Cary Schwarz, Pedro Padrini, John Willemsma, Troy West, David Morris, and Alan Bell. David, it certainly was a pleasure to meet and spend time with you, and Alan, I'm sorry I didn't get to visit more. As always, Troy, its good to fellowship with you, my good friend!
Next year the seminar emphasis will be directed toward saddle making, so mark your calenders, get your work done, save some bucks and get your hide down to OK City for a good time. You won't regret it ! See y'all next September!
