There are so many people to thank but there would be no competition without the sponsorship of Buffet/Crampon. I have been loyal to them for more than forty years!
My colleagues Elizabeth Crawford, Diana Haskell and Dylan James, are a dream team.
They all enter your heart and never leave. They are a great example of beautiful people.
I thank the facilitators and all the judges who will be participating in this competition.
Thank you Vandoren ,Lomax, and BG. You have all been my personal friends throughout my career.
