As I have written to Larry, what can I say? As thanks seems very inappropriate to be frank. Your co-hosting of the National Travel Industry Awards last Saturday night was nothing short of superb. In fact the plethora of positive comments that are now flowing into the office bear witness to that, and between us two, I think you have established a whole new fan base! I am very appreciative of the way in which you both kept the event moving along; injected humor and - to my personal amazement - kept the background noise level to the lowest that it has possibly been in years.In short you did a fantastic job for us, and I know the Board and I and Marie are very appreciative of the effort you made. If I may be so bold as to say so, you absolutely mesmerized many in the audience with your presentation/and the professionalism with which you carried the night off along with Larry has been the hallmark of the praise that we have received following the evening.The two of you comparing together were indeed a "class act" if I may use that term, and one which will be long remembered by the industry. Again my many thanks and I trust that we will have the chance to catch up again and work together again in the future.
