Topic: Pseudo Tradition offering - winners (3 msgs / 118 lines)
1) From: Alchemist John
Congratulations to everyone who entered - all 4.  You all have 
tickets.  The wonder wombat is disappointed not to get to roll in a 
stack of entries :(.
Dean, Lisa, Jamie and Karen - congrats again.
I have emailed everyone off list.
And as to the show, here is my take if I was going, based on going a 
few years ago.
The first days are best.  There is too much to see it all well.  Make 
sure you walk the floor isle by isle methodically or you will miss 
stuff.  Then go back and 'see' what you want.  Check out the talks 
and lectures.  And when I went us home roasters were basically the 
low life and mostly put up with or at worst shunned.  I rather hope 
that has changed.  My take was to go in with attitude, be strong with 
my opinions, NOT capitulate because they were the 'professional', but 
also don't take it too seriously.  Enjoy it.
Oh, I will recommend two things.  Make it by the Behmor booth to say 
thanks and meet Joe.  He is a GREAT guy.  And if Versalabs is there 
with their espresso machine, and are pulling shots, MAKE SURE YOU GET 
ONE.  I still remember my shot from there.  Truly amazing.
OH, and of course, meet up with Tom and whoever of the SM gang is there.
And finally, try and 'team up'.  In the same way the best part of 
this list is talking back and forth with those you know, I enjoyed it 
most doing that while there.  It's a social event also.
