    Welcome to our newest Canadian techs!

    Congratulations to the members who just complete their training and are now techs. Feel free to come along and announce yourselves.

    We had a great bunch and I really enjoyed teaching all of you.

    (Don't want to call you out, figured I'd let everyone announce their own excitement, lol.)

    Thanks to Trudy for being such a great instructor. It feels great to be re-certified and good to go for another three years.

    Aww, thanks Angie. It was great having you in class and getting to meet you.

    ninejr - you should've stopped by and had your seats checked, then you could've met some fellow .org members.

    I thought about it, but it was just after 12 when we were over there and I had been promising A chicken nuggets for lunch and I think we might have had a melt down while her seat was being checked Plus Sam just check our seats a couple weeks ago, so I didn't really need them checked it would have just been for fun
