I'm a bit late in chiming in here, but I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who came to western New York last weekend and took part in this event. As you've probably already seen above, yes, we made some history with one as we set a new benchmark for attendance at a single event. Yes, I'm very proud of what this meet turned out to be, but I also feel that there is still room for improvement and still-larger turnouts in future renditions. I hope that many years from now, we'll all look back on last Saturday as just another incremental step rather than a sort of culmination of things.

The history of the road meet is full of a wide variety of cities, hosts, personalities, highlights, and lowlights. It's been my honor since 2021 to add my own chapters to the collective story of these events and our community. I owe so much of my inspiration to the people who came before me and I hope that I've done them all proud with what I've been able to put together for you all since then. I know there's at least one more of these "chapters" left in me - the New Orleans National Extravaganza is coming up in mid-February and it'll be here before you know it. So it'll be time soon for me to put this one to bed so I can focus on what's next.

Speaking of what's next, and to help tie a bow on all of this, I'd be interested in people's feedback regarding the day as a whole or anything in particular. This can be anything from the meet notes, to the tour itself, and also the after-party ballgame, which in my opinion was a really cool experience in its own right. Feel free to chime in below, and hopefully we'll be in touch again soon!
