I sure appreciated several of our faculty and staff who took the day to be either a moderator or a scorekeeper. I want to thank Frank Arnold, Mark Flickinger, Bev Grunder, Chris Mayer, Jamison Rhoads, and Martin Shaffer for their help. Great Western Dining did a wonderful job in providing snacks in the AM and PM as well as lunch. We heard several positive comments from our guests.”
