Thanks, Sue for organizing the LA Chapter meeting last Sunday. It was great to meet some new people and see other long time friends like Richie Silverman. It was just under an hour drive from our new home to the restaurant but we left plenty early because of our encounter with a lot of traffic on the same road (the 405) on the way to LAX airport for the Cologne Convention. So what to do with an extra half hour when it was smooth sailing? Go to the Irish Pub two doors down and watch the USA get spanked by New Zealand in the America's Cup races (no gloating Gopi!). I'll let Sue post some more of a report with pics on the meeting which lasted 3+ hours but will mention that Richie proudly showed off his acquisition of the Masatoshi model of the head of Danjuro V. It is a beautiful expressive contemporary carving with hair treated with silver nitrate finish.
