I had every intention to check out the DCI show in Dayton this past week but after viewing the weak performance lineup online I decided it just wasn't worth the drive. So I'm kind of bummed I probably won't be seeing any DCI shows in person this season. To cheer myself up I watched some online videos. Thank goodness for YouTube! Here are a few of my faves.
Also, I would appreciate your help in a design contest I've entered. Vote for me here: http://apps.facebook.com/dassault-catia/profile/150.html Thanks! I appreciate the support.
