    Our FDO has some serious competition, but I think he’ll prevail. There are several of these I haven’t listened to, but the ones I have are also some quality stuff.

    That is an awesome set of nominations.  It’s going to be a hard choice.

    Could be better, could be worse. Let’s hope we can pick up #2 this year. I know a lot of you are going to be there so one of you damn well better record the awards banquet if Scott wins again!!!! I still can’t believe NO ONE had a video camera in the banquet hall last year. Well, at least no one is speaking up. Cest la vie.

    The competition is hell stiff this year. As you can see, some kick ass stories of ours did not even make the finals. And they had to add an extra slot to short form because there was so many quality pieces. GOOD LUCK SCOTT!!!! We’ll all be rooting for you.
