    DON’T MISS STEVE! If you are fortunate enough to be at ILCA this year, you will miss one of the best speakers in the BF world if you don’t see Steve. He is one of our own here in the Norfolk area, and we all never miss a chance to hear him even after 15 years of it. Smart, smart, smart, makes you think, hysterically funny, an incredible teacher, with voice and mannerisms to match.

    I can’t wait! He’s one of my favorite speakers. If I recall, he spoke in Philadelphia and he received a standing ovation!
