If you're thankful for the "women's day" at the Sandy Clave, be sure and thank Whitney Gould. I, as well as others, commented to Mark regarding the lack of women in last year's program, and he promised more women this year, and he followed through.
Whitney made it easy for Mark by taking charge of the womens day, planning it, finding speakers, coordinating with Mark, getting pictures and bios, and just being the quiet go-getter she always is.
While Amy will be missed, there will be no shortage of good casters and good instructors, led by Whitney, who I believe to be one of, if not the best, female casters around. I commend her efforts for putting together the womens program this year.
