This year we managed to get a whole group of young guys inside. We needed promotion via Instagram of course, but still.
Hope to see you in Phoenix? If you are there, come and say hi.
Cheers, Patrick van Rooijen

He was very appreciative and walked away with a smile on his face. Best part of it was seeing him walk away looking at a plane instead of a cell phone!

Too bad more show organizers don't promote their shows on here...some are just lurkers on the site!
