Yes, the contest dinner was very crowded, everytime someone went by my seat
I got bumped. The food was good this year, bit I don't think I will go next
year.  We went to Nicks http://gotonicks.com/ and it was very nice. Friday
and Saturday we had to go back to the hotel just to shower. It was so hot
and muddy we needed to change, which makes it difficult to dine in Xenia.
We will probably return to Nicks on Wed or Thu as we usually come in early.
Nice to chat with you too!
