Hi Barbara, wow, cannot believe this is the 5th Memorial Benefit already. Not sure what makes time fly. Wishing you the very best and I am sure this one like all the rest will make new results to break the other records. So much good luck to you and can’t wait to hear this year’s results.October 4, 2016 at 8:14 pm #521barbara6193Spectator
