Hey Kyle, thanks for the hello comment on my White Williams post. I'm making the trek down to Madison on Saturday to catch some of Pop, unfortunately I'll miss your showcase. I was talking to Wyndham recently about my blog doing some sort of sponsorship, but it was kind of late in the game so nothing was worked out. Maybe next year, though? Hope it all goes well this weekend.
