I have to jump in and add a few words to Rick's. If you get the chance, please take advantage of the Northern Rockies Chapter's weekend. If I remember correctly, this is the longest continuously running PPFA Chapter trade show. The Northern Rockies Chapter knows how to produce a great show.

The chance to spend a day-and-half with Hugh will make any of us better framers, and I learn something new every time I hear Brian speak. The educational program is worth the drive/fly-in. But there are more reasons that the educaton to make the effort to go.

I got to go to the show two years ago, and the thing I remember most is the spirit of the Northern Rockies Chapter. They had a great print competition that year with an amazing number of entries. There is something special about the air up there, and this is a weekend that is well worth the effort to go.

Sorry to jump in Rick, but I had a great time, and I think you should all support the hard work of the Northern Rockies Chapter.

Many times I have been asked "why" you need to be a part of PPFA.


This is why.
