It's the rest of _us_ that owe YOU a great big thank you!
You went above and beyond the call of duty.
I don't know how many other people realized that you were out there in the rain Saturday making sure that no one was in difficulty after the "weather bomb" hit.
Somehow, I don't think that was in your job description! :-) But you being you, would make sure that friends came first.
You da best, gurl friend!

Although we had a few moments of worry when the storm arrived on Saturday morning, it did blow through and away, and the rest of the weekend was blessed with great weather. I have dry canvas! Huzzah!!

You give this event its life, and we are deeply indebted to each of you for doing such a great job.
> On a personal note, I would like to offer an enormous thank you to Corinne and Kirby Seabourne, who manned my tent for me and shouldered the huge load of making sure that everything turned over tickety-boo -- especially when I had so many other calls on me throughout the weekend, and even more especially when my voice (and brains!) went completely and I hit the wall on Sunday afternoon. Thanks also to my fabulous staff members: Alison, Alex, Ema, and Spencer (welcome home, so glad you got here a week early!) -- this event absolutely would not have happened without you pulling together and backing me up.
