    I know, its a funny name for the classes I do on the road, but someone else coined the phrase, lol. What I wanted to say is, with respect to the many other instructors out there, at least the ones I am familiar with, I am doing my best to not plan any of my group classes too close to the other instructors cities. I know many of them by first name and respect what theyre trying to do, just like me, so I hope we dont get too close to someone I simply wasnt aware of. We all have different teaching styles and theres certainly plenty of folks interested in advancing their instruction, but I just dont want to step on toes where avoidable. Thanks!

    That's understandable, I live an hour and a half from you and I'm flying to Illinois, not every taxidermist uses the same techniques or systematic styles.. I don't see how you would be stepping on toes I'm going to go to the people that interest me because of their work, not their geographical area..

    Well, I came up with the Yox part, lol. I guess maybe Thacker did. It started with the marathon classes going all day and night with some good friends in my studio, and morphed from there. They all wanted to see who stayed here the latest. Marathon=Yoxathon.

    How about we do one here at my shop here in Texas the week before the Texas show???

    I've got what I believe would be the perfect set up for it and although it would be crowded, I would have no problem housing everybody.

    Looks like we are tentatively slated for Kansas City sometime late in May, then Michigan and now Texas in July. Start making your plans!
