I just wanted to send you a brief note about your Drilling Onshore Conference. I really enjoyed being there and seeing all the progress you have been making in the past seven or eight years that I have been gone. It was very impressive to see the attendance and the exhibits and the enthusiasm everyone has, your staff included. What really got me energized to write was the list of conferences that you have lined up. Wow! All over the world! I can’t imagine how you keep up. Whatever it is, keep doing it, because all the contractors will benefit if they attend. Nice going, maybe I will back again one of these days and we can visit again.
