Thanks to all who braved the brutal South Bay holiday traffic and sat through an over-the-time-budget ceremony! It was a special event, which I wouldn't have forgotten in any case, but deeply touched me in a way I didn't anticipate.
Well, I suppose I should mention the series.... we released the preliminary 2009 schedule with its user-voted slogan, "Make the Grade". Special thanks to Barry Burr for suggesting the slogan, a fitting W for Barry after his really amazing contribution to the series this year, ending in his very deserved receipt of the Low-Key Spirit Award.
I can't wait for Montebello!
