Nice pics, Gyp, and thanks for the video, JRPfeff! All in all, sounds like there were absolutely no disappointments!

Wrong Ann.  We were disappointed you couldn't make it.

I just knew that it would turn out to be a great day because I wasn't there...wait, that didn't come out right.
 
Glad it was a good time for everybody.  I would've especially enjoyed the shrimp and seafood.

Brad,
 
Sorry you (and Annie, too) weren't there.  How was the graduation?

Buddy, thanks for putting together another great Contingent tour. Nina and I had a swell time eating, meeting, and greeting with the group. The food was great and your margaritas were the high point
of the tour for me.

Annie, we're cutting back the tour this year.  We will be in Cleveland in a couple of weeks, but no other specific plans at this time.  We had some distribution difficulties in the Twin Cities, forcing us to cancel our May dates there.  I'm currently working on setting up July and August, but no details yet.  We have no plans for coming up to Milwaukee this summer, at least not on business.
 
Back in 2009 I took almost the entire summer off and lived like a normal person for the first time in nearly 15 years.  It felt pretty good.  Sales were down, but not nearly as much as I thought they would be.  Last year we stepped it up again and saw sales jump back up.  This year I'm prepared to do limited traveling, but I'm having a hard time getting either the stores or the distributors to commit.  Once there's something worth talking about, I'll start a tour thread.
 
Thanks for asking,
 
Buddy

Well, we will just have to have a get together in the Milwaukee area to get you up here!

Brad,

Sorry you (and Annie, too) weren't there.  How was the graduation?

Aside from roasting in the sun at the outdoor ceremony and then buying dinner for 10 people, it was great!  Still would've rather eaten shrimp 'til it was coming out my ears, though.
