Thank you for the anecdotes with zero relevance to the discussion at hand.On the other hand, I've heard Jobson give inspirational talk at the Lake Pleasant Birthday regatta Leukemia Cup fundraiser in a tent, 50 miles from Phoenix, in the desert. Saw Conners at a kid's regatta fundraiser. Both were touring the country, speaking @ rinky-dinky clubs helping promote the sport. Real grassroots kinda stuff. Now that's been awhile, but hell we're all old as dirt nowadays.
