To anyone who has not gone to the "Fairfax-Sanj-Fest", I would highly recommend doing so. The whole night starting with pre-dinner beers with some board members (Thanks again, James, for orchestrating), the dinner at Baldali's is terrific and it is very cool to hear the off the cuff comments of Frances, Sam and others. The FFH Meeting was quite good as well. Prem is engaging, frank and enthusiastic. I came away from that feeling even better that much of my retirement is being funded on the shoulders of Prem and crew. I did not make it to the MPIC meeting so cannot comment on that.




* Make sure that you don't book your flight Thursday too early. I would suggest early evening or maybe even staying until Friday morning. I had to leave the FFH meeting too early (had a connecting flight and wanted to get home before midnight) and missed the after meeting reception...would not make the same mistake twice.


* If you have not visited Toronto previously, stick around for a few days...I really like the city (Hockey Hall of Fame is worth the time) as well as the variety of ethnic dining experiences.


* The well-known quip of "God gave you two years and one mouth, so listen twice as much as you speak" applies, but I would recommend listening about ten times as much as you speak...there is much to learn over these few days.


My job and other issues dictate that I cannot make it up there this year, but I will try for 2011. Have a great few days, all. Take care.
