    Well-deserved win. Good run on a good mandolin on a challenging number.

    And a shout-out to the 2nd place winner, Vince Bullins. Vince is undergoing some physical challenges right now which make his contest performance all the more amazing. Looking forward to jamming with him at his cuz's mandolin camp next week.

    Steve,
    Are you bringing any AX models to IBMA this year? Would love to try one.
