I agree. Robin, Great meeting you, and Lars!!! Thanks for coming. All others in England, and around the world, start saving $$$ now for next year should it happen.
TOO much fun to miss. Robin, good luck in the marathon. I still don't know why you run them. Thanks to Steve Brooks for showing up and seeing what a bunch of friendly and outgoing group we are. I came home with a dreamed-of treasure (Thanks Elliot) and even have some money left to pay bills. What a deal. What fun. What excitement.
Thanks to all. Ian, if you read this - to you, my most valued and dear friend, please keep your spirits up. I know how you get when youi get back to your secluded part of the world with the marsupials, snakes, spiders, and your pets and wife Lisa.
More later, it's just too overwhelming to think of what to say now. John Bushey

I had a great time and enjoyed meeting everyone. I greatly appreciated being accepted into the group and very much enjoyed making some new friends along the way. A very special Thank You to Ian for giving me my first lock picking lesson. Thanks to that lesson I was able to open two different locks in a matter of minutes - what a thrill. Smile
However, the real rush came as I smuggled my new tools thru airport security - okay, I'm off to work on more locks. Smile

Hi All, just got home, back to the land of oz. Great to be home but sad to be away from all of you. John Bushey, you are are great friend and I was very sad to leave you, see you soon I hope. To Mark and Sheila, what a fantastic convention and thank you for your hospitality and opening your home for me while there.

Mr Brooks, or may I call you Steve? - what a pleasure to meet you and laugh and joke as if we have been old school friends who had just caught up after many years. Glad to have fulfilled your dream to pick locks and uphold my end of the deal that I could teach you so quick. Really, the credit is yours for being a top learner.

More later after some sleep.

Steve, I am glad that you are mastering the skill of lock picking but I am even more elated that you live in NORTHERN California. As I live and work as a locksmith in SOUTHERN California, I would have been worried about the loss of business that I would experience with you running around.
Just one word of advice....not too much tension. Just enought to bind em!

Ian, PLEASE do call me Steve. Smile
I too very much enjoyed the time we spent telling stories, joking, etc and feel like we have been friends for years. Rest assured I will only use my new skills for good, not evil. Smile
I have much to learn, but thanks to your expert teaching I am well on my way.

Mark,
It was great meeting you as well and I hope to someday see your large collection of cuffs. By the way, don't worry, I may visit southern California once in a while but the north state is my home. Smile

John Bushey,
It was great hanging with you - your skill with cards was evident and I enjoyed seeing your work with handcuffs. Looking forward to seeing you again. Smile

Ian, Yes I'm very much interested in the Guiteaus. As you know, they were a sell out and I lost my opportunity to pick one up at the show. I did pick up a pair of one of your newest creations. I didn't bat an eye when it was offered to me.
Thanks for the kind words in your Gimmicked Handcuff and Restraints Book. I have read most of it and found it to be very good reading. I recommend it to all, especially those that frequent this web-site. I forgot to give you a Gotcha key. I will post one out if you still need it. Congrats on your 500 posts. I will be happy when I hit 50. Say hi to your wife. I miss her. Good hanging with you. Hope it will not be too long before we can do it again.

Steve, I took the liberty to be informal also. It was a pleasure to meet you even though we didn't get a chance to get into any large discussions. I hope that when you are in the San Diego area, you will give me a call and it would be an honor to show you my collection. Just leave the picks at home!

Mark, Sheila, Ian, Thomas, Dean, Stan, Steve, Joe, Kristen, Kevin, Other Steve, Elliot, John, Cliff, Other Mark, Andrew, Bill, Tony, Jay, Joseph, and any of the guys or gals I've left out; I'm worn out.

It was a gas to meet, share a few tricks, and have a few laughs. I want to say that you all made this event one I'll remember for a long time. I think I'll be doing this one again. I won't be able to post the pics until next week, but I'll drop a line as soon as I do.

And Steve, I'm glad to see that you've finally gotten some sleep.

Hi Ace, This is the other Mark. Even though we were in the dueling position at the show (back to back) I just had to turn around to see who was back there. I was glad you didn't draw almost as much as it was to meet you. Good luck with your book and speaking for myself and taking the liberty to speak for everyone else, we will be counting the days til we can hook up again.
Best wishes to you.

Ian, As I told you, I got off! (inside joke folks...don't want to start rumours)
Bring Lisa out with you next time. Maybe then you will behave yourself at these conventions.

Hi Mark (cuffs) Lisa is worse than I am. As a MICA paramedic, she has seen both the good and bad of humanity and knows how to handle both. I will certainly bring her along, I told her the story and she now wants to meet you.

Hi Ian, I do hope to meet Lisa at the next show. If she is just half as humerous as you, we will be in for a real treat. If she is equally humerous or even more so, you need not come. (lol)
I am a little concerned however. Being that she is a paramedic, I wonder what she wants to meet me with.

I missed the convention. Several days beforehand I had to drop out and was very dissappointed that I couldn't make it. But I was wondering, can any/all share your thoughts on Steve Baker's lecture. He told me about it while he was coming up with it, but I was curious to see the finished product. And is there a chance that someone recorded or video taped it??????

Kevin video taped at least part of it, I have no idea how of when he will make it available.
