Thanks the updates Jim, the tour already sounds quite savory, with many opportunities to capture images / video to share with our friends here, and spread the top spinning in Europe!

My raffle top is mostly done and is already being performance tested. 
Report:  Performance is GOOD  ;D
I kinda want to share what the specs are, but I don't want to be a tease?
I will say this; I'm hiring an artist friend of mine to paint her up, it's gonna be big and wicked!

I can't thank all who are participating and organizing this enough, I am so honored!

Hello Jim and commitee,

I have read the plans voor your 'european convention', if you call it like this. It sounds interesting. You also mention the possibility, after 7 days, to visit me. If members are interested, they are welcome. Please inform me about your plans so I can tribute to a visit of the wonderful town Hoorn- old Harbour City. Lourens.
