  1. Reuben,

    This is the first time i have read the listing of your DJ accomplishments and Dance event attendance. Those are both impressive. I noted with interest that you have DJed in quite a few MN venues.
    Further, it looks like you started attending LH events about the same time Rudy and I did, beginning in ’99.
    Question: Was the ’99 Camp Hollywood the first one? If so, we didn’t go to that one, i think we attended the 2nd 3rd and 4th, but none after as the event was moved to summertime.
    As well, we have also attended many of the same weekend LH events you attended. We may have attended a total of more, including smaller ones, but then, we didn’t work, and you had a job. However, you have attended more high profile events that we did, that often because we tried to stay home in MN during the warm months, and during winter, when traveling and dancing, we kept away from cold climes–motor home living is difficult when the temperature falls below freezing.
