    Let me add to Doc and David's comments by saying that I agree it was another first rate convention. I can't praise the local host orchestras and the CMSA Board members enough for all of the hard work they put into making things go smoothly.

    The Flamingo Resort was a great place for us to gather, despite being exposed to some of the worst outdoor air in the world from the nearby Camp Fire. Most of us don't leave the convention hotel very often anyway.

    This year's En Masse orchestra played at a very high level. Thanks to their hard work, preparation, and the always amazing conducting of Dr. Jim Bates they gave one of the finest performances ever on Saturday night. I hope that there will audio/video evidence of this at some point down the line.

    I also want to offer many thanks to everyone who stopped by my vendor booth and helped me offset a little of the cost of flying to California by purchasing sheet music books or CDs.

    Mostly, though, it was just great to see so many old friends and to make some new ones. I'm looking forward to Bloomington-Normal, IL next October!

    Or maybe a solo mandocello piece? It was good meeting you, John, enjoyed the open mic performance too.

    Lon Hendricks. He is the conductor of the Minnesota Mandolin Orchestra. You can contact him through the MMO website.
