I must say, it was impressive. Tip of the hat to Stump for promoting it so well.
I will also add that one of the cardinal rules of growing an annual event (conference, trail ride, anything) is to host it on the same weekend every year, in the same place every year, and never skipping a year. We have been doing that now for three years and I think the growth we have experienced is because of it. Next year's event size might require us to move in to the adjacent field. I hope Jeff's community association doesn't start to get antsy about how large the event is becoming.
