Last week was an amazing experience! The ConVENTion was incredible - so many talented acts, time hanging out with good friends and the adrenaline rush of non-stop activities. I had the pleasure of presenting Jay Johnson and Willie Tyler with honorary memberships to the International Ventriloquist Society ( http://maherstudios.com/ivs/ ). Willie and Lester sat down with me for an in-depth interview that will appear in the October issue of the IVS Spotlight. We discussed Lester being made by Madeline Maher - and Willie shared some memories of her.

The conVENTion is staffed by a group of dedicated people - too many to mention, and I know I'd leave some out, but I want to say thanks to Mark Wade and Ken Groves for all they do. I'd also like to pass kudos on to Jody Wade, Ruby Groves and Linda Truman for keeping things organized and handling the tons of paperwork. Mark Truman, along with new staff Wally & Virginia Petersen, did an incredible job making the acts sound good. People have no idea how hard they work and how many issues they have to deal with before, during and after the show.

The hospitality staff has to be thanked too. Our own Donald Woodford could give you all the names - they go above and beyond helping with so many details, plus manning the hospitality suite. I doubt they sleep at all.

On the HomeVENTion, thanks to all to participated - both as HomeVENTioneers and as lecturers. Special thanks to Mike Palma, David Crone and Neale Bacon for helping create original lecture material for everyone unable to attend Kentucky. If you haven't seen the HomeVENTion, it is still available on the blog at: http://www.learn-ventriloquism.com/news/

the conVENTion wouldn't be such a huge success with YOUR your invaluable assistance. I've personally seen how much running around you do ,to get get things done to ensure those in attendance have a good time.

See you next year.
