I couldn't believe how many people were there! It was crazy! Each musher has a table where he or she sits with family and major supporters. Then there are lots of tables filled with fans! We counted 162 tables with about ten people at each table!
I am very proud to say that 3A was well represented at the banquet! The twenty-five centerpieces we sent for the banquet arrived and were placed on the tables. Just between you and me, our centerpieces were all set on the main tables in the front of the podium. Mushers John Baker, DeeDeeJonrow, Dallas Seavey, Pat Moon, Hank DeBruin, Jim Lanier, Justin Savidis, Jaimee Kinzer, Matt Failor, and Cim Smyth all had our designs on their tables! It was so cool!

When we took pictures of each centerpiece we explained who we were, why we were taking the picture and that our students had mailed the centerpieces from Baltimore. Every single person was so impressed with your artwork and said to be sure to thank you! They really appreciated you work!
Way to go guys!!!
