Just got the new schedule of events from the ABG, and they have a lecture I'm going to try to get to. It's a freebie, which is even better. Peter D'Amato is going to be there Thursday September 20 at 7:30pm. It's free and don't need to make reservations for seating. This will also include the obligatory book signing.
ABG has a very nice CP collection, and I believe they have developed several hybrids over the years.
Hope to see you all there.
