And a big thank you to all of those folks who volunteered to work the Registration Desk during the Roundup.

And last but not least a great big thank you to my wife Robyn Mullen who works extremely hard from Sept till the Roundup.  Robyn handles all the money, checks, contracts, food ordering, name processing, printing of name tags, purchasing and tracking the door prizes, paying the bills, negotiating costs, etc etc etc and she also runs the poker tournament.

I  would also like to give a very, very special thanks to Retired LASD Deputy Jess Bembry for the very  thoughtful and meaningful gesture that he put forth and started on behalf of myself and Robyn.  I am just so glad that he did not tell the “snake lady” story.  And a great big thank you to all of you who followed suit with Jess’s gesture.  It was very touching to us both.

See you next year.
