Great job out there, Tom. You had a great overall performance.
I had an awesome time watching you and all the other athletes put it on the line in Utah. It was a pleasure judging events and seeing new faces as well as seeing the guys on the cusp of the pro ranks.
The latter statement of course is directed towards you. You will be there very soon, as I am sure you are already expecting it from yourself.
Keep it up and I hope to see ya again soon!
