Nicky, what a great class/time our wives had this weekend. It was professional, personal, and very well done. The girls had a great time and learned some valuable basics. Just in conversation with friends these past few days, we have several friends who would be very interested in any future courses so please advise us for the next one. Thank you again for a very well done course!
