    This will be one of two chances to see Francois this summer in the USA. Johnny has worked really hard to get his Visa documents in order. This was a life changing event for me last summer.

    I was also told Nick Walker will be on the faculty this year. There may be a few more announced soon.

    I am thinking about attending but debating if I'd get much value given that I've only been playing for about a year and the long drive from Toronto. the chance of seeing Rabbath live is very enticing.

    It was the first step in actually fixing my playing. I would urge anyone to go!
