Hopefully all of you are settled in and will be enjoying the holidays with family and friends. I just want to take this opportunity to thank all of the readers and posters on the forum. I hope that you all have learned as much as I have in the short time that I've been posting here and on the forum. Lets hope that next year will be as good as this year and that all of our coaching wishes come true in 2008.

I leave you with some great information from the sponsors of this blog and the forum. They have all been very generous in their support so I hope all the readers help support them as well.
