Wind Tidbits and Congrats

Given all the news coming out of the last solicitation and now with the third just around the corner, I’m going to break the newsletter up into two parts. A once per month full edition with a lead topic, and bi-weekly shorter blasts highlighting timely news and events. This….. is that.

IPF Review

The buildup to this event in Atlantic City was big. We were all saying you gotta be there. It seems a lot of people got the message, last count 3,000.
