Sonny --- commercial ? COMMERCIAL ??? I'd as soon buy a suit off the rack!
Sonny --- Terry --- I'm a couple of hours (by jet) west of Toronto, which is somewhat north of GFMPH. A bit far to take any of the choppers. The Bell Jet Ranger is fine from here to Minneapolis when my wife wants to shop at Nordstroms and the jets are busy, but much further and it's a 'pain.'
As for excuses, I do have a good one, and one I know you'll accept. For many, many years I've been part of a group of ten businesspeople (nine men, one woman) who meet monthly to help each other with whatever in our lives we need help with. Once a year we have a two/three day retreat and this year's retreat is exactly when GFMPH is being held.
Perhaps next time I'll be able to come in a pop up camper, if not a rolling palace.
