            I know Mike will be attending anyone else from these forums? Grant is looking forward to meeting Mike, Dr. E, Mr. Ballsy, Steve Pake, Dr. P., Kim Jones, and the other speakers/presenters; along with other TC survivors.
            Grant hopes to spread TC Awareness around EAST TN when he returns.
