Monthly Archives: January 2015


I regret to say that due to 3 to 5″ of wintry mix expected tomorrow the Media Panel Event has been moved to Feb. 7.

With bad memories lurking of the SABR Regional and infamous Halloween Storm of 2012, our utmost concern today is not to jeopardize anyone’s safety on the roads.  “Better to err on the side of safety”, as our friend Stan Dziurgot says.

THE GOOD NEWS is that 6 of the 8 Panelists have already confirmed that they can participate on Feb. 7.

My apologies for any inconvenience caused to anyone.

See you on the 7th.
