Thats good. OVFA is a blast. I've gone to 4. I was at the last 2, Coos Bay and Keizer. This year since its so close we won't have to stay over night. If we want to go we have to pay our selves. You should encourage them to go its a great learning tool and its fun to hang with people from all over. have a good week!
