Well perhaps if the road show is a success then they will do it again, NadineJ. It does seem like a really great event for engineers and designers, so they will probably take advantage of it and call for more in the future.

Wow.  The only state they'll visit west of the Mississippi River is Missouri.  That's very unusual and disappointing.

I hope there will be a second round of those of us who are out west!

I agree, Rob. I think these sort of events, especially being available free to designers and engineers, can be a great service and help to those in the industry as they look to take advantage of new technologies.
